A brief history overview of TAD Management
Terry and Anne Davies
Fate brought Terry and Anne together in Spain in 1982 where Anne was a tour guide and Terry was a bandleader. In 1983 they formed a duo. They came to the United States in 1984, toured up and down the West Coast with their act Nu Attitude and then went back to the UK in the early 90s to have their son. Nick was born in Liverpool in 1993 and was an in-vitro fertilization (IVF) baby; and Anne and Terry are understandably passionate about the procedure.
“We have produced and performed in many fund-raising concerts in aid of IVF programs so more couples can experience the overwhelming joy we felt holding our miracle child after being told we couldn’t conceive naturally!” according to the couple.
The Davies returned to the United States in 2000 and settled in Arizona. From 2000 to 2012 they were partners of Skye Lounge, a restaurant and supper club that presented both national and local acts. The Davies now focus their energy on their company, TAD Management, which places tribute acts at various venues such as casinos, performing arts centers, RV resorts, symphony halls and cruises. Some of the Davies family’s amazing shows include AbbaFab, The Piano Man Series comprising The Magic of Manilow, The Sedaka Legacy and a Billy Joel/Elton John show; Yesterday Once More — The Carpenters Show; December ’63 — The Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons re-creation; One of These Nights —The Eagles Tribute; The 3 International Tenors; Nashville Gold and Time in a Bottle (Jim Croce, Jim Croce and James Taylor).
The apple does not fall far from the tree and Nick Davies is no exception. He first started to show an interest in music when he was seven years old and he received a drum kit for Christmas. Nick also plays piano, percussion and harmonica and is currently learning accordion. He writes and records his own songs and his dream is to score movie music. Some of his greatest composer heroes are John Williams and Alan Menken and his song and lyric-writing inspiration comes from Billy Joel.
When asked to describe the highlight of his young career, Nick names the performance that he and his father did at the memorial for the 19 brave Yarnell Firefighters. Nick performed a solo, On Eagles Wings, which was televised globally. He said his knees were knocking, with Senator John McCain 10 yards to his left and Vice President Joe Biden 10 yards to his right, but he did not want to let the heroes down so he used the emotion of the day and his nervous energy––and he nailed it!
