  • 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.

    Dead Doings in the City of Brotherly Love…

    donnaDonna Jean Godchaux, Grateful Dead vocalist in the 1970s, will return to Philadelphia on March 7th to host a table at the annual WXPN Beggar’s Banquet fundraiser to be held at Penn’s Landing Caterers, 1301 S. Columbus Blvd. For more information, go to http://www.xpn.org/support-xpn/2009beggarsbanquet

    And since Philly Dead Heads are never satisfied, there’s more. After the Dead’s May 1st concert at The Spectrum (their 51st at the venue), Dead Heads will be able to stroll across Pattison Avenue to McFadden’s, a club located inside Citizen’s Bank Park, where they can – for FREE – see the brand-new Donna Jean Godchaux Band with Jeff Mattson. Good deal, huh?

    This band is a new one, having morphed out of the former Donna Jean and the Tricksters. Donna Jean Godchaux was of course a member of the Grateful Dead. Jeff Mattson is a founding member of the Zen Tricksters, Long Island’s legendary Dead-oriented band, and has played with Phil Lesh and Friends. Together with David MacKay (a member of Muscle Shoals favorites, The Fiddleworms), Joe Chirco (Long Island’s hardest-working drummer), and Mark Adler (a member of Donna Jean’s original Heart of Gold Band), they’ll keep folks dancing ‘til the wee, wee hours.

    EOTO Hits the Sunshine State in March

    eotoIn the midst of a massive winter and spring tour, the left coast breakbeat, glitch-hop, dubstep, and house duo EOTO is prepared to dig their toes in the sandy Florida beaches for a weeklong string of dates in the Sunshine State. Gearing up for their very own version of Spring Break, EOTO has penned six shows in a seven-day span. Opening March 9th with a performance in Islamorada, the duo is poised to catch some rays while lending their innovative blend of live instrumentation and digital mixing to a Florida beach party soundtrack.

    Featuring Jason Hann and Michael Travis, formerly of the progressive jam outfit String Cheese Incident, EOTO is a shot of adrenaline to the heart of the music industry. Differing in sonic stature from their mixing forefathers, the typical EOTO live experience is 100% atypical, meaning nothing is pre-recorded, nothing is pre-looped and no set is pre-planned. Every night is a distinctive journey into the musical minds of Hann and Travis, each feeding off of the other’s creativity and the audience’s vibes. EOTO combines cutting-edge technology with live instrumental performance to create truly original and melodic dance music in the moment.

    Following the show at TIB Bank of the Keys in Islamorada, EOTO will venture along the coast to Key West, Miami Beach, Delray Beach and Jupiter. The Florida tour will conclude in Gainesville with a performance at Common Grounds on March 15th. For a complete list of dates and details, visit the duo’s MySpace page as they continue to make waves in 2009.

    Great American Taxi: A Benefit for The DiscoverHope Fund

    Great American Taxi - photos by Sam Holloway- for the Grateful Web

    Great American Taxi is ready to charge into 2009 with a new album on the horizon and some new members in the cab.  In December of 2008 founding members Vince Herman (Leftover Salmon) and Chad Staehly brought their new line-up and a few special guests into Backbone Studio in Loveland, CO to record the next evolution to their "Americana without borders" brand of music.  Filled with electric folk, alt-country, a dash of bluegrass and good ol' rock and roll, Taxi has found their stride and sound. The latest version of Taxi includes Jim Lewin on electric guitar and vocals, Edwin Hurwitz on bass guitar and Chris Sheldon on drums and vocals.  Barry Sless is also considered a member at large adding pedal steel and guitar when he can get away from his other gigs and jump into the Taxi

    The band has been led by Herman and Staehly since its' inception for a Rainforest Action Group benefit show in March of 2005.  Now approaching well over 400 shows, the band has kept a fairly busy schedule of 140 shows a year and has hit a lot of the premier music festivals along the way including High Sierra Music Fest, Wakarusa, Summer Camp, 10,000 Lakes Festival, Dunegrass, nightgrass slots at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and the list goes on.  After a brief tour in fall of 2008 supporting Railroad Earth, the idea was hatched to have Tim Carbone (fiddle player from Railroad Earth) produce Taxi's latest album, and it proved to be a magical marriage. Carbone also added some fiddle to a few tracks complimenting Taxi's big sound which includes Herman's acoustic guitar, Staehly's rock and honky-tonk piano and organ work, Lewin's west coast telecaster guitar assault, Hurwitz's funky bass lines and Sheldon's tasty percussive blend.  Sless also added some pedal steel and guitar, and Carbone brought in a horn section and some gospel singers for a few tunes as well.  This all supports Taxi's original song-writing, which is also complimented by 3 part harmonies and strong lead vocals from four of the five members.

    Great American Taxi's sound has been compared to a variety of roots oriented bands including New Riders of the Purple Sage, a "Grateful Dead for the new millennium," Wilco, Uncle Tupelo, The Byrds and more.  People will hear threads of the Leftover Salmon fabric propelled by an inspired Herman being supported by a cast of talented minstrels ready to follow Herman to the land of 'Festival!"  Herman's in-your- face, in-the-moment improvisation helps bring the party to Taxi's well-crafted songs.  People from all backgrounds will be able to latch onto something in the band's sound.  Great American Taxi is truly a melting pot of musical tastes and styles all rolled into their "Americana without borders."  Look for Taxi's latest album to be released in March of 2009. 

    The DiscoverHope Fund (DHF) is an international development organization promoting abundance for women and their families living in economic poverty through microcredit and sustainable support systems.  DHF creates an entrepreneurial framework for the poor to actively participate in their own economic advancement, personal empowerment, and life transformation.  Of the worlds 6.1 billion inhabitants, one of every five (more than one billion people) live on less than one US dollar a day.  Nearly half of the human race, more than 3 billion people, live on less than 2 US dollars a day and are faced with the life-threatening reality of poverty every day.  These numbers represent real people, real families, and real stories of those who are trapped in poverty and cannot adequately feed, clothe, or shelter themselves.  DHF is rooted with the passion and vision to create a world that really works for everyone.

    KELLER WILLIAMS ANNOUNCES WINTER TOUR DATES

    photos by Sam Holloway- for the Grateful Web

    Keller Williams hits the road this winter to tour southern U.S. states.  The one-man-band has built a career on his uncanny ability to captivate a packed house—all by himself. He's been called a "solo cult-hero" and "music's mad-scientist." 

    For over 100 shows a year, Williams has proven himself to be a master of improvisational performance art. In his one-man show, he pads barefoot from guitar to bass to percussion stations, using looping effects—and enough instruments to stock a strip-mall music store—to layer sound atop sound until the stage swirls with a full-blown composition.

    Keller Williams' current list of confirmed tour dates is as follows:

    While Keller has made liberal use of technology throughout his solo career, he also knows that musicianship is ultimately a human undertaking. With a seemingly unquenchable thirst for all genres of music - bluegrass, jazz, and—who'd-a-thunk-it—hard rock – occasionally Williams puts unyielding faith in a backing band, as he did for his September 2008 release LIVE.  On LIVE, Keller taps into the world-class talent of Keith Moseley (bass – The String Cheese Incident), Gibb Droll (guitar – Marc Broussard, Brandi Carlile), and Jeff Sipe (drums – Aquarium Rescue Unit, Leftover Salmon). The musical horsepower of four friends playing together on stage proves stronger than even Keller had dreamed. Recorded at select live shows during a winter 2008 tour, and featuring seventeen tracks that span Keller's career, Live is a testament to how a band, with the right chemistry and chops, can take a song to places even the writer couldn't have imagined.
