Since the release of their 4 song EP, lead guitarist Mike Shelton left the band to pursue other interests. The band thanks Mike for his outstanding work on their 4 song EP, and wishes him success in the future.

Replacing Mike Shelton is Andy Frantz. Andy has extensive experience on the guitar and last played with a band called Black Cactus in Indiana. The band is excited to have Andy and looks forward to playing with him on stage as well as recording with him on their next CD.

Keep in touch with the band. They're looking forward to a very productive year.

2 Taks Back has been recording for their 2nd CD. Four songs have been recently completed, and the band hopes to finish their second CD by years end.





With a strong classic rock background, the band is on a mission to preserve the classic rock sound not only by catering to the classic rock era listeners, but also pitching it to the uninformed listener. Based out of Indianapolis, 2 Taks Back plays original music written by Paul Myhre and Curtis Hartsook.  The band hopes to open for nationally touring groups in the near future.

Their first CD, Coming Home Again, was released in August of 2012.  The band released a four song EP in October, 2013.  The band is currently recording its second LP and plans to release it in the spring of 2014.
