GREAT AMERICAN TAXI

"I believe in the power of music and songs that can generate the energy to do something," explains Herman. "Politics should be in music; everything's politics, especially music. Songwriting can draw attention to appropriate issues of our times." The band holds no bars in confronting current issues like mountaintop removal, nuclear energy, poor economic conditions, or a soldier returning home from war.

"Taxi's latest release has shed the jamming and gone for the throat with focused song writing and tight musical arrangements," adds Staehly. "The album combines 'folky' elements with straight ahead bluegrass that was propelled by Tim O'Brien playing fiddle, banjo and mandolin on several numbers mixed with equal parts rock 'n' roll — think early-'70s country-rock Rolling Stones."

POOR MAN'S WHISKEY

Northern California’s outlaw music bards bring a reputation for high-energy live shows and an incomparable fusion of bluegrass/old time, southern rock, and old school jam to stages and festivals world wide.  This “High-Octane Hootenanny” will certainly delight those interested in a foot-stompin good time.  Poor Man’s Whiskey has evolved into a ragged, spontaneous beast pulling from equally deep wells of story-telling originals, expertly crafted covers and zany on-stage shenanigans.
