Southern Standard Time



The World of Rusty Taylor, a hemp-inspired quadriplegic jester disguised as a jazz-singing poet and writer
Gig Dates

​Each Tuesday, the Jane Drake Band hosts a jazz jam at Eighth and rail in Opelika, Alabama, and I try to make the jam as often as I can. It is a seriously groovy community of jazz enthusiasts and incredible musicians who travel from Montgomery, AL; Tuskegee, AL; LaGrange, GA; and Columbus, GA.
