George Tisdale Band
About Me
Just imagine the gut wrenching soul of James Brown meshed with the fashion sense of Andre 3000, and then fuse it with the edge of the Rolling Stones you end up with the George Tisdale Band. GTB is successfully bridging the gap between experimental, alternative, funk that is rooted in a deep faith which is the solid foundation of the soul. Armed with soul-stirring vocals, a guitar, tuba, drums, and keyboards, – the George Tisdale band is a refreshing return to an era of true artistry and awe-inspiring talent. Applauds from both music industry insiders and fans alike; many GTB fans can testify to it being a life changing experience.

From an early age George began to distinguish himself as a musician. At the age of 8 he started playing the drums, keyboard, and later as a young underground artist experimenting with different styles, George began to develop the visionary sound that has become his trademark.

This sound is the product of a number of musical influences, including George's late uncle, the world-renowned jazz bassist, Wayman Tisdale. Other influences include James Brown, Jimi Hendrix, Prince, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Sly and the Family Stone, and Elton John.

George has worked alongside many of the most talented artists in the industry today including Janelle Monae, Branford Marsalis, Anthony David, Keite Young, Nnenna Freelon, Jeff “Tain” Watts, D.Woods, Nate Currin, and many more.

In 2010, he got together with Donald Parker III and formed the George Tisdale Band. Their eclectic songbook is a blend of alternative rock, funk, soul, folk and ballads. Donald Parker III sums up the secret ingredient to their groundbreaking style with one question: “what other rock band has a tuba in it?” His one-man funk-infused horn section adds another dimension to their multi-layered sound.

In 2013 the band is set to release their highly-anticipated debut single, "All We Are" which is from the album Problems vs. Solutions which is slated to come out soon. For this project they teamed up with L.A. Based producer Chris Warrior, ATL's Simon Illa, and DFW's own Keite Young and a host of other producers, singers, songwriters and musicians. The album uncovers the complexities of everyday life; but rather than simply dwelling on ever-present struggles, the band uses each track as an opportunity to offer solutions. Each melody becomes a light illuminating the way forward.


Donald Parker III says the band's mission is to produce life-changing, God-implanted music that penetrates the soul and sets listeners free. At a time when most artists are desperately trying to sound the same, the George Tisdale Band is a breath of fresh air – a reminder of a time gone by, and a celebration of what's to come.
