The TAXI Road Rally
Music Supervisors (left to right) Mason Cooper, Frank Palazzolo, Jonathan Weiss, Susan Dolan, and Jacob Nathan are all in deep thought as they listen carefully to a TAXI member’s song being played during their feedback panel.

Everything we just listed above will be happening (and much more) at the TAXI Road Rally, November 1 – 4 in Los Angeles. The question is, "Why wouldn’t you go?"

And It’s All FREE!

Each and every TAXI member gets two FREE tickets to TAXI’s Road Rally convention! Other events cost as much as $500 for a single ticket. If you’re a TAXI member, you’ll get a ticket for yourself and one for a friend, band mate, co-writer, or your spouse!

Speaking of husbands and wives...

After each Road Rally we get emails like this:

"The entire atmosphere at the Rally is like... one big family. My wife said that she didn't want to leave such a warm environment to go back to the real world. Neither did I."
-Clay Butler, TAXI member

Here’s what other people are saying!

"Will the Rally be a waste of my time if my music isn't ‘ready?’ I almost didn't go to the Road Rally this year because I didn't feel ready and professional enough. I decided to go anyway, and I'm so glad I did. Not only did I make some incredible contacts, but also I came home feeling much more professional and knowledgeable about the industry and my own direction as an artist. Thanks again for opening so many doors for me!"
-Celia Rose, TAXI Member

"I flew 15 hours from Sao Paulo, Brazil to LA just for the Rally. And I can tell you: it was one of the best experiences in my life!"
-Rogerio Maudonnet, TAXI Member

"I think it should be the duty of every TAXI member to do everything in their power to make the TAXI Road Rally their ‘music industry pilgrimage’ every year, because entire, successful music careers have been built from the Road Rally alone. I have witnessed it personally; it’s not just a bunch of marketing hype."
-Fett, TAXI Member

"Many relationships began for me at the Rally, not only with fellow members, but also with music library owners and publishers who eventually signed my music. I would not have any of the success I have had so far without the TAXI Road Rally. It’s a no brainer in my opinion, if you’re serious about your career."
-Robbie Hancock, TAXI Member

"I’m skeptical of any service that offers to help musicians ‘make it’... so I didn’t know what to expect. ...90% of [the TAXI Road Rally] was the most focused, specific, high-quality advice I’ve ever seen distributed in a seminar format."
-Stephen Fortner, Editor, Keyboard Magazine

"As far as I'm concerned, it's the top educational and networking event in the music business and I recommend it in all of my books and workshops. Bravo!"
-Jason Blume, Hit Songwriter, 50 Million Records

"I was impressed with how many panels and workshops they offered at the event. TAXI provides direct access to top level executives and songwriters giving its members an incredible opportunity."
-Mike Elizondo, Hit Songwriter and Producer; 50 Cent, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, and Busta Rhymes

"When I joined TAXI, I was told the Road Rally alone would be worth the cost of joining and it is true. My guest could not believe that all that great stuff that was happening at no cost. He said he would expect the tickets to be at least $500 apiece for any other event of this kind, not that there is one. Thanks again, truly a life-altering event."
-LJ, TAXI member

"This was my first TAXI Road Rally, and I have to admit I was a bit skeptical of the claims that it could "change my life." The first day blew my doubts away. Inspiring, helpful speakers and teachers from the upper echelons of the music industry willingly sharing their knowledge. Rooms full of people with similar interests, all excited to talk to complete strangers. I got an excellent critique of my music from an exec at a famous publisher, and made lots of contacts. I'll never be able to thank you enough!"
-Dave Ogden, TAXI member
