Great American Taxi announces 2010 fall tour
Revered as one of the most energetic country-, rock- and bluegrass-influenced Americana bands in the land, Great American Taxi announces tour dates that will feature some of the most innovative and acclaimed players currently on the jamband/newgrass and Americana scenes.
Taxi’s Fall Harvest Tour will showcase the exceptional instrumental and versatile vocal abilities of Drew Emmitt, who will bring his mandolin virtuosity appearing with both Leftover Salmon and his own Drew Emmitt Band. The latter is on the October 29 bill in Englewood, CO. Emmitt will team with (The String Cheese Incident) as Billy NershiNershi-Emmitt to perform with Taxi for one night only at the Wow Hall in Eugene, OR, on November 7.
Modern troubadour Todd Snider continues to add concert dates with Great American Taxi. Snider brings his guitar, piano, and harmonica along with his stellar musicianship and treasured lyrics to the stage with Taxi and the Drew Emmitt Band on October 29 and Leftover Salmon, October 30 in Denver. Snider is currently criss-crossing the country playing dates in support of his recent release The Excitement Plan.
David Nelson Band brings its exploratory improvisational jam sessions to November 12 and 14 dates in Sebastopol, CA, and Ukiah, CA, respectively. The group features Nelson (New Riders of the Purple Sage) on guitar and vocals; Barry Sless (Phil Lesh and Friends) on pedal steel and guitar; Pete Sears (Jefferson Starship, Hot Tuna) on bass and vocals; and John Molo (Phil Lesh and Friends) on drums and Mookie Siegel on keyboard, accordion and vocals.
Taxi’s latest CD release, Reckless Habits, climbed to No. 3 and remains in the Top Ten for spins on both the Jambands.com radio chart and the Colorado radio chart, complemented by two months in the Top 25 on the Americana radio chart.
