It was nearly 9 years ago when we were first introduced to AM Taxi and were mesmerized by their performance at Slim’s in San Francisco opening for The Spill Canvas. Allow me to take you back that special show:
Prior to starting it seemed that not many people were familiar with their music and were just waiting for the Spill Canvas to go onstage. Most of the audience was just mulling around the long L-shaped bar and mingling. As soon as AM TAXI peformed the first song; it was apparent that they were well received. People began to go to the stage and it was soon deep with people and all their attention was on AM TAXI. It was as if they knew they were watching a band that was soon going to be very well known and they didn’t want to miss any of it.
Their energy was infectious and the crowd was soon moving around to their eclectic songs. By the time they played “Fed Up” it seemed everyone was glued to them. Adam’s intense vocals with a rough edge, alongside with his fellow bandmates backups was a gift in itself. It was so nice to see a new band come along and just kick it out of the ballpark and not sound like every other band these days. At times reminiscent of “The Outfield” with a touch of “The Clash” and even some “Material Issue”; an incredible winning combination!
We were hooked on their music from that moment on. AM Taxi is one of our favorite bands with a sound that is addictive in every sense of the word. They are set to release a new album on January 25th titled Shiver By Me.
