Great American Taxi in the Midwest & rides w/ Todd Snider

hermanOn Saturday night Vince Herman and Great American Taxi finished a two week run of dates in Colorado and New Mexico highlighted by two nights supporting the Bill Kreutzmann Trio and culminating in Durango at the Abbey Theater.  Todd Snider happened to be playing the Strater Theater in Durango the same night and headed over to ride the Taxi.  He surfaced for the entire second set for a freaky folk festival.  Snider led on tunes of his own and some inspired covers including a take on J.J Cale's "Crazy Mama," Snider's own "East Nashville Skyline," and some fractured folk takes on some 70's funk hits.  It was apparent that all on stage and in attendance were witnessing a new musical meeting of the minds.

 

Great American Taxi is heading through the Midwest over the next couple of weeks while work on their second album is finished, entitled "Reckless Habits," which will expand Taxi's ever evolving sound aided by the production of Railroad Earth's Tim Carbone and supplemented with Barry Sless on pedal steel, the Black Swan Singers from Denver, CO and a horn section.  Although an official release date has not been announced, Taxi has shows scheduled on their home turf on March 19, 20 and 21 to celebrate the forthcoming release, including Hodi's Half Note in Fort Collins on March 19th, Boulder Theater on March 20th with the Peak to Freak Horns and Black Swan Singers and March 21st at the Bluebird Theater in Denver with the horns, singers and special guest Bill McKay Band on support.
