The Best Music Convention on Earth!

You probably won't ever understand the true value of TAXI until you come to our annual convention, the Road Rally. It's such a powerful weekend that it truly transforms lives.

I know it's not always easy or affordable to fly to LA, but remember, the Rally is free because we want every one of our members to dig deep in to this treasure trove of power tools for artists and songwriters.

So many great connections and deals have happened at the Rally, that it's become legendary. I hope you can find a way to join us next November. Come and get up close and personal with heavy weight music business executives and network like crazy with your fellow members from your own back yard, and around the world. Start saving for your plane flight now, and find out why people say that the Road Rally is the single best weekend in their music careers.

See you in November,
Michael

Dear TAXI,

After attending Road Rally 2003, I know TAXI is the real deal. The panels were staffed by real hit songwriters, real A & R people looking for talent, and real hit songwriter instructors with insight to take us to the next level. TAXI provided real access to a nearly inaccessible industry.

And after listening to my competition, I am committed to turning my good songs into undeniably great songs.

Thank you TAXI.

Even though Jefferey Steele is the most successful songwriter in Country Music today, he still took lots of time to hang out with TAXI members.

Dearest TAXI team,

I spent the weekend as a guest with your wonderful family. I want to say thank you for the singularly most exciting weekend for me as a composer and songwriter. I'm still on a high from a wonderful weekend that was a gift to me. I seriously didn't expect such a loving, openhearted and giving group of people.

Thank you so much for everything.

With more than 200 of his songs cut by major artists in the last three years alone, Jeffrey Steele remained as friendly as the guy next door, and answered every question with a smile.





Motown songwriting legend Brian Holland got a standing ovation when his medley of hits was played during his introduction. Scores of members spoke to him personally after the panel.
