Saturday To-Do: Great American Taxi

Posted By on Fri, Apr 10, 2009 at 2:42 PM


9 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $10.

The modern Americana sound has been further established in the two years this band has been together. Expect a folk and country sensibility with heavy doses of improvisation and good old-fashioned rock 'n' roll. Just as Vince Herman's name should ring a bell to those familiar with Leftover Salmon, Great American Taxi has developed quite a reputation for its high-spirited performances and tireless road ventures, becoming veterans in one form or another of festivals such as Wakarusa and 10,000 Lakes. Self-described by keyboardist Chad Staehly as an “electric folk band,” the Taxi came together in 2005 as a seven-piece collaboration to benefit rainforests, and the group enjoyed their stage time so much that they whittled the band down to a permanent five-piece. A quick listen brings to mind flavors of Little Feat and the Band, storytelling numbers with a true moonshine-on-the-front-porch vibe.
