Taxi Driver is a 6-piece cover band playing music from the '50s to today including Oldies, Motown, Classic Rock, Country, Dance & Modern Hits. Our members include Michelle Irions (vocals/manager), Sarah Girres (vocals); Al Irions (keys/sound/manager), Glen Smith (bass), Miles Loretta (drums), and Mike Turner (guitar).
The band has changed much over the years. We began our journey 22 years ago back in 1991 as a jam band, covering a lot of blues, and artists such as Santana, the Allman Brothers & Phish. In 1998, the band morphed into a female-fronted band with 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 have now settled back into the way we began when we added the girls...with two; Sarah and Michelle. We play everything completely live....no tracks! We also do not use pre-determined song lists during our shows. Each show is customized to the audience and age group that is there.
TD has covered the bar circuit in Omaha/Council Bluffs. Over the last 10 years, we have taken our show all across Nebraska, Iowa, & Missouri where we've been privileged to meet the awesome folks of the Midwest! It's been a wonderful journey!
