"Four Stars!"

"Primal, roiling dance music, as urgent as anything
coming out of North Mississippi hill country." (4 stars) - Chicago Sun Times

"another view..."

"The most progressive culture-clashing menagerie
of instrumentation conceivably possible by a 5-piece band." - RockzillaWorld Magazine


“To say you guys had the CROSSROADS (Memphis) audience rocking would be an understatement. I really enjoyed experiencing Taxi Chain live… great sound. Even the club manager came up to me and said you guys got him out of his office which is a feat few bands have accomplished.”

“Taxi Chain sold more CDs from the stage than I’ve ever seen anyone do.

What a great show, the people here loved it”

Taxi Chain’s music is instantly recognizable, but not as easily described. A lush bouquet of bluesy jigs and reels with strong overtones of old school funk, R&B, rock & roll, country, folk, and world music. Led by Grier Coppins on vocals, tenor guitar and bagpipes with serious heapings of soulful saxophone, dexterous and rootsy electric guitar, sing along choruses, big bottom bass and maximum swing drums, the band’s music is versatile, daring and fun.
