"The TAXI Road Rally alone is worth the price of membership. There is simply no place on the planet that anyone can get so much useful information, from so many Music Industry people, in 3 days time!"

Talk about cool! This year's Rally attendees got to send goofy online postcards to their friends back home. Wish you were here... no... really I do!
Dear TAXI Friends,

Amazing! This weekend was so great and wonderful and professional and exciting and fun and inspiring and resourceful and everything else you can possibly think of that makes something a positive experience. I have been to SO many conventions and TAXI's Road Rally took the cake and you can quote me on that!

Best,
Dawn
