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.

Margot, Steve and Ken, you were outstanding! Thanks so much for allowing us to customize our playlist and for learning the song we requested for the wedding.You achieved that difficult balance of providing wonderful vocals we could hear and dance to while not drowning out conversation. No easy task! Many of the 150 guests came up to me to express their appreciation, and a few of your songs filled the dance floor. That Neil Young song was great! Loved the Van Morrison! Trouble-free setup and flexibility when you were there. I'll highly recommend you to friends and family.

Big Yellow Taxi was amazing for our wedding reception! They were on time, on key, and brought the fun! BYT has a great play list of folk rock classics and a variety of sounds that fit slow dancing or fast. They have a wonderful vibe together as a band and really brought an element of romance and fun which got our guests off their feet. I am so grateful to BYT for making our special night extra special. I highly recommend them for your event! A special thanks to BYT for playing a beautiful rendition of "Harvest Moon" for our first dance.

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.
