Tali started playing drums in junior high school aafter the music teacher determined he couldn’t sing or play a reed instrument. he was told to go into the musical instrument storage room and find an instrument. of course it was the drums.
Tali started playing drums in high school bands and then started working with older musicians which led the band at the time to Atlantic Records co-founder Herb Abramson to trade the band free studio time for helping him build his second A-one studio. what an experience !! while working there, a school friend & his songwriting partner stopped by and asked if myself and the bass player would join them at an off Madison Avenue advertising agency in the west village called NO SOAP RADIO. we did over 100 commercials and soundtracks also. this lineup led to the forming of the band THE TIDBITS that for a time was the house band at MAX’S KANSAS CITY opening for every major act 6 nights a week. that led THE TIDBITS to opening 6 days a week at Expo 67 in the geodesic dome in Montreal after it closed it was re-opened & for 2 summers we opened for the blues originators like Roosevelt Sykes, Lil Brother Montgomery, Sunnyland Slim, Lionel Hampton and many many others. quite the learning experience. you can check their videos on Youtube. Next i moved to the bay area and played with Mike Bloomfield, Luther Tucker, Peter Kaukonen and many others. While doing gigs i used my taxi to move my drums.
