ABOUT BIG YELLOW TAXI


Big Yellow Taxi is a New England based band, created to explore the music of Joni Mitchell, from her early folk roots to her jazz influenced compositions.


The band features the expressive and soaring voice of Teresa Lorenço. Teresa has performed in folk and rock bands plus burlesque and musical theater. The Big Yellow Taxi band is composed of experienced and talented musicians dedicated to creating an exciting live show.


The mission of the band is to present a show that immerses the audience in an intimate and emotional 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.


Big Yellow Taxi has been performing shows on the east coast for over a year to the enthusiastic reviews of Joni fans and converts.


“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 Rich'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 is a consummate musician. Can't wait till they come back to The Kate again!” - Steven A
