See the TAXI Road Rally Schedule!

Dear Passengers,

The Road Rally — our FREE, annual convention is just FIVE weeks away and we're already 40% more booked up than last year at this time! The discounted rooms at the official Rally hotel are already 75% sold out!

Now is the time to reserve your seats for this life-changing weekend, November 6th-9th in Los Angeles! We just posted what the Main Stage Ballroom panels will be this year. Click here to see them. Right below the Panel Schedule, you can see a PARTIAL list of the classes we'll be offering this year. We're still adding more!

We're starting to get really excited about the Rally around here. It's a TON of work, but it also feels a little bit like Christmas in that we get to see all the smiling faces that result from all the hard work.

How Cool Are The People Who Go To The Road Rally?
I just heard about a group of really short videos posted by a lovely woman named Deborah, who is obviously a TAXI member that was at least year's Road Rally. Click here to watch these so you can get a feel for the famous positivity, work ethic, and warmth you'll experience at the Road Rally.

And thank you for shooting and posting those Deborah! Track me down at the Rally so I can give you a hug :-)

The quality of the panelists is truly superb this year! We're still confirming some, so we'll announce them when we're all done in a week or so. And the classes are looking better than ever! No hype — just the facts.

Also, we're going to have the best bunch of One-to-One Mentors we've ever had! And yes, all this is FREE for every TAXI member and a guest. We don't make a penny on the Road Rally, so you'll never have to wonder if we're hyping it. Actually, some years we lose money doing the Rally!

Why Is The Road Rally FREE?
So, why do we go to all this trouble and expense? Because the people who come to the Rally get better faster, become successful more quickly, and in the end, that's how we benefit — one person telling another how much they love TAXI and how much we helped them.

Can't Afford To Go?
One of our staff members just told me she was on the phone with a brand new member who wondered if it was too soon for him to come to the Rally because he had just joined a week ago. Another told her that he couldn't afford to buy the plane ticket. There are very few things I would advise anybody racking up credit card debt for, but the Road Rally is on that very short list. If you're truly serious about making music and earning income from it, then you can't afford to NOT go!

And once again, hats off to my incredibly hard-working staff for getting 46 excellent new Industry Listings, which just went live today. If you want to get more music forwarded, get more deals, and make more money with your music, nothing will make that happen faster than coming to the Road Rally!

See you soon,
Michael

CUSTOM CRITIQUES

If you have material you would like critiqued without responding to a specific listing, you've come to the right place. Fill out the submission form with the song title(s) and author(s) as usual, but in place of the listing number write "CUSTOM" in capital letters.
Please include a note specifying the aspects you would like the listener to address.
For example, some members like to have their craft (lyrics, rhyme, structure, etc.) closely critiqued. Others want to know for which genre their writing is best suited (sorry, but we can't recommend specific listings for you to pitch to). Still others want a review of their photos, bios, package, etc.
The submission fee is $20 per song. Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope, and make sure to specify if you want the tape (or CD) back, or just a critique. Remember, these critiques are for your own edification and development and NOT targeted for a label or publisher, and therefore will not be forwarded.
