Taxi Driver is a popular, 6-piece, regional variety band from Omaha formed TWENTY-EIGHT YEARS AGO in 1991 and fronted by two female singers. We perform more than 80 shows a year for a large variety of venues and events. From weddings, to corporate, holiday, and private parties, street dances, fairs/festivals, family-friendly events, and bars; we provide a fun, interactive show that spans every decade of music from the 50's to today.
Playing Oldies, Motown, Classic & Modern Rock, Country (new & old), Pop, Dance & Current Hits, all members of Taxi Driver are accomplished, professional musicians with long-standing records of experience (live and studio) to their credit.
Taxi Driver's journey started in 1991 as a jam band, playing blues and artists such as Santana, the Allman Brothers & Phish. In 1998, the band morphed into a female-fronted band with an interactive stage presence, and strong, solid harmonies. Taxi Driver was the very first band in Omaha to claim three, and even five female vocalists!
We play everything live....no tracks! We do not use pre-determined song lists during our shows. Each show is customized on the fly to the audience and age group that is there with little to no time between songs, keeping YOU on the dance floor!
TD has covered the bar circuit in Omaha/Council Bluffs. Over the last 15 years, we have taken our show all across Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Kansas, and Missouri where we've been privileged to meet the awesome folks of the Midwest!
