Now entering their 21st year, the Texas Horns are a powerful and veteran three-piece horn section featuring Mark ‚ÄòKaz’ Kazanoff on saxophone, harmonica, and vocals, John Mills on saxophone, and Al Gomez on trumpet. The Texas Horns have been featured as the house horn section at music festivals including the Ottawa BluesFest for 19 years, the Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland, Oregon, the Chicago Blues Festival, the Calgary Blues Festival, and the King Biscuit Festival. Versatile arrangers and excellent ‚Äòreaders,’ the Texas Horns present their own set of rockin’, sophisticated, and contemporary blues, R&B, and jazz music, with original songs from two studio albums. The Texas Horns band has Tommy Taylor on drums, Glenn Shuetz on bass, Matt Farrell on keyboards, and Mike Keller on guitar. The three primary players can offer school and library shows. Released in 2019 on Severn Records ‘Get Here Quick’ has garnered stellar reviews from many publications, including Living Blues, Downbeat, Buddy Magazine, and Blues Music Magazine. ‘Get Here Quick’ continues to be featured on numerous radio shows internationally.
