30 - Moon Taxi

Genre: Rock/ Jam/ Techno/ Electronic/ Freakjams
Location: Nashville, TN
Websites: www.myspace.com/moontaxi

Bio: Moon Taxi, as their name suggests is out of this world! The taxi will take your mind on a blast off journey through time and space! A modern day spatial Lewis and Clark (Sacajawea and Pocahontas too) exploring uninhabited sound worlds and planting their flag for future generations to see. Their compositions are an amazing amalgam of hard rock and electronica fused with techno, reggae and just the right amount of jam. Moon Taxi is reminiscent of bands like Muse, Particle, The Allman Brothers, Radiohead, The Clash and David Bowie. Their live show is mind-blowingly spectacular. I got a chance to catch them at AGR fraternity in Auburn and they melted faces and souls with their set-to-kill laser wave beams. After impeccably ripping a cover of the Allman Brothers' "Whipping Post" with flawless form and skill they launched into meteoric originals laced with scorching viscosity.

They are currently touring the world, having opened for Matisyahu, Government Mule, DJ Logic, The New Mastersounds and many others. Their virtuous twin guitars riff incalculably over tight drum spice supported with doric columns of keyboard, synth and dirty funk-rock bass-quakes. Did I mention their vocals? Their voices ring true as a heavenly host of virginal angelic seraphs precipitating lush harmonies that attract flocks of snow-white doves flying above a multitude of sea-blue dolphins under a double rainbow. Wow! A double rainbow! Words cannot describe Moon Taxi's unquenchable molten mass of soul power, however I try in vain. The only way you can begin to know their vast repertoire of unique Freakjams is to close your eyes and let them take you for a ride to the Moon and even further to the rings of Saturn. After making a left turn at Jupiter and sailing thru the milky waves of our galaxy you might return home with a new perspective of which direction music is headed. It is going to the freaking moon and Moon Taxi will take you there!!
