Big Yellow Taxi began in 2019 from a longtime desire to offer a tribute to the unique and varied compositions of Joni Mitchell.  Teresa Lorenço has been singing Joni Mitchell for most of her life. 

She decided she wanted to explore the music on a deeper level and offer Joni fans an exciting live music experience that encompassed the many stages of Joni's career. She crafted a challenging repertoire and assembled the talented group that comprises BYT today. Big Yellow Taxi : The Band feels honored to represent Joni, and bring her fans a unique and powerful show that cannot be found anywhere else.

What people are saying about Big Yellow Taxi

I cannot adequately express the immense joy you folks brought to me and hubby Dave. Your musicianship, on the part of every single member of the band, was absolutely astoundingly awesome. The way you touched us deeply (there were some tears) and made us sing and shout with happiness frankly was just about unprecedented. To be able to hear one of the best concerts ever in our admittedly rather long lives in the Old Town Hall's City Space tonight was something we'll never forget. Thank you thank you thank you. - Lonnie

Hey you all, I loved your performance at Get Down with your Hometown. Teresa  -- Amazing job with the vocals, and the spirit! And the whole band sounds great -- Joe, of course, Rich, everyone! There are times when a cover band goes beyond, and conveys the spirit of the art in a deep way, and you folks are moving into that territory. A fine offering. --John

Transportive and surreal! Beautiful vocals! Congratulations -- Anne W

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say your show at the majestic last night was magical. My mom and I attended, and I love Joni through my late father sharing her music with me when I was a girl. You brought back so many feelings, it was a little like having Dad back for a moment. Everyone was incredible, and I know my father (who was a bass player himself) would have been very impressed. Mom and I loved it, and I'd be lying if I didn't say i might have been tearing up almost too hard to keep up with the "Circle Game" sing along. Just brilliant. Thank you for an amazing night.   Sara T
