FINAL performance for The Big ORANGE Taxi wowed audiences of Davis Station:

“Sensational!” says Geoff Lavers

“Literally rocked my socks off” screamed Bonny Cumming

“Those bass players kicked a**!” Adam Christensen

For our last Saturday night dinner with the summer crew, possibly the greatest band yet to come out of Davis Station, The Big Orange Taxi, performed its final gig in front of a roaring home crowd. The group decided this was to be the last performance together as some members wanted to head off in their own direction. This new band is the love child of “Kiss The Fish” and “Rubber Thing In Your Sound Hole” with a few new talents thrown in as well. During the night they played some of their more famous tunes like “Holy Grail”, “Day Tripper” and “Creep”, with new singles like “Teenage Dirtbag”, “Blister in the Sun” and “Rockin’ in the Free World”, which was definitely a crowd pleaser.

By the end of the night there were tears, lots of hugs, kisses from Rick, bad 1960’s dance moves….we had it all.  It was definitely a night to remember and the Davis band finally got the recognition they deserved and got on the cover of the Rolling Stone. 

For the last time, members of The Big Orange Taxi: Darryl (lead guitar and vocals), Joe and Lucas (rhythm guitar), Nick (drums), Louise (keyboard), Steph and Chris (bass guitar), Rick and Craig (vocals), Alex (vocals and rhythm guitar), Jacki (vocals and percussion).
