Taska Barlow has performed from Alaska to Nebraska and Nevada to Nashville. Her music career began in the Pacific Northwest, where she worked as a single act playing guitar before putting bands together and touring. Songwriter Workshops in Nashville, headlining the Alaska SE State Fair, performing on Norwegian Cruise Lines and many Nevada cabarets have fond memories for Taska, but are never more important than each new audience at every performance.

KEIZER ELKS LODGE #2472 February 3, 2019 My name is George Krueger. I transferred here from the Bremerton Elks. We have been coming here for over 2 years and the band tonight “TASKA”  is the best band we have heard. They play requests and great variety. They are great musicians also.  Sincerely, George Krueger, Bremerton Elks Member 14191”
Taska & The Party Band performed at our wedding. They did an outstanding job in every way! They did a great job catering their music to the audience, playing classic older dance tunes to contemporary hits, The musicians are all top notch professionals. A big bonus to us was that Taska took over the role of Master of Ceremony, and kept the party rolling with toasts, first dance, cake cutting, and anything else we wanted. Taska is such a great entertainer and made everyone feel so comfortable and involved. She even invited some of our musician friends to sit in and sing and play with the band for a few tunes. Everyone LOVED that! I am so grateful we booked this band for our special day! It was so much more fun and personal than a DJ. Thanks again Taska, Cliff, Albert and the rest of the group!”
Hi Taska! What a wonderful night! Thank you for including me. This was a fabulous Jam Session that allowed each of the players to stretch. I am very impressed with the quality of artists you have coming to this. Shannon's singing was awesome. Cliff is incredible. Excellent drummer and fabulous harmonica player-big wow here in attitude and ability. Albert is tops, liked his playing and laid back attitide. Certainly, it is your exceptional abilities as a showman, singer and bass player that are at the center of all this. You'ree the one driving the experience, making everyone feel special and comfortable. Kudos to you! Great stuff! Tom”
