Great American Taxi: Boulder Charity Benefit & Fall Tour Dates


Great American Taxi
On December 11, Great American Taxi will host a night of music at the historic Boulder Theater here to raise money for the Mark Vann Foundation charity. In its eighth year running, the holiday benefit concert this year includes Great American Taxi, Todd Snider, Bill McKay Band, Bonfire Dub, Shannon McNally & Hot Sauce and others.

“It’s our own little way of keeping alive and nurturing the joyous spirit of Mark Vann,” said Chad Staehly, executive director of the foundation and keyboardist/singer for Great American Taxi. Vann, the banjo player for the Boulder-based band Leftover Salmon, died in 2002; the foundation in his name assists various nonprofit groups.

This year funds will directly benefit There With Care and CareConnect. The evening also includes an art exhibit and silent auction. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $20. People are encouraged to wear a fun or favorite hat.

Great American Taxi is currently in the midst of its Fall Harvest tour. Taxi’s latest CD release, Reckless Habits, remains active on both the radio chart and the Colorado radio chart, complemented by two months in the Top 25 on the Americana radio chart.
