TLC began as a band in 2010 for a Halloween show in their hometown of Florence, SC. Due to the response from that show other venues came calling and they have since played hundreds of shows throughout the Southeast. Evidence of what influences shaped Tastes Like Chicken’s sound is a bit of challenge to pinpoint. Thus, when someone once asked, Frontman, Lance Shirley to describe his band’s sound, he said… “Well, It kind of tastes like Chicken.” Thereafter, that’s what people referred to them as and the band had found its’ name. The band’s quintessentially Americana sound was borne out of myriad genres of music including Jazz, R&B, Country, Soul, Hip Hop, Gospel and Southern Rock. Starting out in Florence, SC they have since become a fixture on the music scene around the state playing upwards of 200 shows and area festivals a year.
Tastes Like Chicken prided themselves on their musicianship, audience engagement and original music. Their time spent playing is evident in their vocal harmonies and supremely tight sound, with a saxophone as their lead instrument.
