"If a person wanted an inside view into what the music business is about, attending the Rally would be a way to get it."

Attn: Michael Laskow:

The professional panels were honest, thoughtful, engaging and showed a high degree of openness and goodwill toward TAXI and its members.

What a great weekend of information, education, and music from an insider's perspective.

Rally it was, because the collective spirit of aspiring songwriters and musicians who made the trip from near and far were really encouraging.

We learned from each other in SO many ways (performances, critiques, Q&A's), and met face to face with high level industry execs as well as potential collaborators from all over the world.

Michael and the entire TAXI Staff:

I hope you all are getting some well deserved rest after this weekend's activities. Thank you again for your hospitality at the Road Rally. I think that the one thing the entire membership will agree on, is your dedication to the cause.

Thanks very much,

Michael Leshay, VP/General Mgr. of Ultimatum Records begging TAXI members not to give him any more tapes (we're just kidding), while Interscope VP of A&R, Tony Ferguson laughs at him in background.

Dear Michael:

After a man I was recording with recommended TAXI to me, I engaged in a tepid relationship with your company, uncertain of your legitimacy. The Road Rally, however, dispelled all of my hesitation and now I know how real and wonderful you and your staff are.

The information I walked away with from the event astounded me. It is as if I have been awakened from a deep slumber. I work with the focus you have given me.

Thank you for the amazing weekend and your tremendous gift!

To Michael Laskow (the wizard of A&R):

I just wanted to drop you and your staff a note of "Thanks!" for yet another successful Road Rally. I have been a member for 1 year and attended the Road Rally last year as well. It was nice to see that more people have discovered TAXI ... I spent most of the weekend wishing that I had joined sooner. I thought the guest speakers were informative as well as entertaining. I truly appreciate the time, money & effort that went into planning this weekend. I attended another songwriter conference in October that I paid $ for and it didn't come close to the TAXI Road Rally! In the course of a year I have gotten 12 forwards & have been contacted by 3 companies associated with TAXI and a Road Rally A&R panelist called me just last week after hearing my CD. I have become a better writer and artist because of TAXI. I now have focus and direction ... yes, there is a yellow brick road.
