Big Yellow Taxi
Big Yellow Taxi is a New England's premier Joni Mitchell tribute band. Created to explore her amazing music from it's early folk roots, to her pop masterpieces to her jazz influenced compositions, Big Yellow Taxi brings Joni's music alive.
The band features the expressive and soaring voice of Teresa Lorenço. Teresa's vocals pays homage to Joni's sweet, husky, and bell-like voice delivering an emotional journey through Joni's expansive catalog.
The mission of the band is to present a show that immerses the audience in an intimate journey through many of Joni's best loved and most powerful songs: a performance beyond mere imitation, to delve into Joni’s musical intensity and genius, to leave audiences entertained, moved and elated.
What people are saying about Big Yellow Taxi
Teresa's powerful rendition of Joni Mitchell's songs were enhanced by adding her unique musical spirit to each selection. Anne's harmonies and percussion were spot on. John's lead guitar versatility and talent filled every song and Riche's bass guitar assumed a new voice and expression for every composition. Keyboards were masterfully played by Robert with Joe's beat complimenting and driving forward every song with energy and skill. BTY, what a fabulous band making music with a gifted Teresa in the lead! Each member of the band a consumate musician. Can't wait till they come back to the Kate again! - Steven A
What a deeply satisfying and moving performance @ New Hope Winery. The syncopation and orchestral swing was enhanced by riveting voices which brought the full impact of Joni's music straight to the heart. I want more. - Jeffery
Saw Big Yellow Taxi last night at the Divine Theater at Gateway City Arts in Holyoke MA and was absolutely blown away by this band. Joni fans from those who only know her Top 40 hits (and maybe Blue) to the hardcore Joni aficionados will LOVE this band. Even covered Hejira, Come In From the Cold, Cold Blue Steel. Don’t let the sweetly sappy sing-a-long of Circle Game fool you. This is a kick ass Joni Mitchell cover band. This tribute is overdue in the misogynistic, male dominated rock world.I wish I’d gotten more vids of them but I was too busy dancing in my seat and singing EVERY word along with her! Check them out!!!! Thank you for one of my most enjoyable recent concerts. You’re in good company along with Tedeschi Trucks, Bonnie Raitt and Grace Potter.- Garrick
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
