Big Yellow Taxi-- voted "Best Live Performance" at the Best of Oregon City Awards, 2017!

Ken Brewer, Margot Kelly and Steve Kelly are all veterans of the Portland music scene, playing in a number of local bands including Return Flight, Department of R&B, The Eric Larsen Band and others. Wanting to do something that was in contrast to these projects, the three of them got together to create an acoustic based, intimate musical experience. The idea was to take songs from a variety of musical genres including but not limited to rock, r&b, country, jazz, and blues; rearrange them to fit the stripped down instrumentation of an acoustic trio and give these songs a new and interesting interpretation.

Big Yellow Taxi is the type of band that can fit any occasion-- from a club gig to a wedding, a back yard barbecue to a corporate event, concert in the park to a wine tasting. With an extensive and evolving list of songs, they can create just the right mood you're looking for. Big Yellow Taxi also has a lot of flexibility as far as production. From a bare bones acoustic group to a full P.A. and lighting, they can provide for a small room to a larger venue.

Big Yellow Taxi played at my outside August wedding and were amazing! Out of a 75 person event I heard from over 15 people of how great they were. They were easy to work with, professional, sounded amazing, and even got my family of non dancers up off their chairs. Hire them. You won't regret it.

Big Yellow Taxi was a huge success at our intimate wedding. My husband and I have between us an incredibly wide range of musical tastes. Steve listened to us ramble about what we liked and didn't like, what kind of mood we were hoping for and opportunities for bringing our guests together and very easily put together a very satisfying playlist. They surpassed what we had hoped for. Every guest we talked with commented on how talented the group was, how much they enjoyed the music and how in-tune they were to the mood of the crowd. I would highly recommend this group and would hire them again. Thank you all!!!
