Todd Snider and Great American Taxi 2012
Double Bill Doubles Your Pleasure
"He's ... one hell of a performer, having built up a cult following thanks to nearly 20 years of concerts that double as side-splitting storytelling sessions. Snider takes inspiration from the likes of comedians Bill Hicks and Mitch Hedberg in addition to Bob Dylan and Neil Young, with rhymes that often double as punch lines and between-song banter that alone is worth the price of admission." - Washington Post
Great American Taxi marks its sixth year as one of the best-known headliners on the Americana music scene with a new release, Paradise Lost, produced by critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Todd Snider. Taxi has spent the last six years touring America non-stop, and their astute observations on the American condition resound with a truth and values ethos that all can relate to. After all, these guys have seen a lot, having played more than 750 shows in their short history together and traveling close to 500,000 miles in that time, spreading a brand of music that they affectionately refer to as "Americana without borders."

Whistling Swan Productions strives to provide a listening environment where patrons and artists can focus on the music without distraction. Because of the quiet acoustic nature of most of our shows, all children in attendance should be able to sit without supervision in a way that does not distract or disturb other listeners for sets that normally last at least an hour, and may stretch to two full hours. In our four decades of producing shows, attending shows with our own children, and supervising students as educators, we have found that children under the age of nine (9) seldom have the interest and focus to sit through acoustic shows of this length without causing stress on parents, musicians, and other listeners. Therefore, while there are rare exceptions, we strongly advise parents to not bring children under the age of nine to Whistling Swan shows unless they are specifically labeled as for children or families.
DAY OF SHOW: CenterTix sales end at Wednesday, August 8 at 3:00 pm. Will call and any available tickets will be at the door one (1) hour prior to curtain. Door Price is $35.
This event is part of Whistling Swan Productions's season package. Order your own subscription here or call CenterTix at 263-ARTS (2787).
