What you'll do
I grew up here & have played professionally from opera to rock clubs. We will visit several original Austin venues, sometimes shaking hands & chatting with artists I know personally, and I may sit in to play a song or two. I'll be your personal photographer taking artful pictures & selfies along the way so you can focus on experience. 1) We'll start the evening out by meeting at a secret gorgeous nature spot downtown. I'll play a little violin serenade with a guided meditation, talk about who we'll see during the tour & we'll get to know each other. You can bring a picnic if you like, I'll have blankets and yoga mats. 2) We'll visit at least 2 classic Austin music venues chosen by poling the group's preferences. It might be live jazz in an upstairs loft, two stepping at a Texas dance hall, bluegrass night, a middle eastern jam or taking in a mystery Monday show. More might be added if the group is up for it. Austin is known worldwide for its vibrant live music scene, but it can be overwhelming to know where to go and who to see. Who wants to waste hours figuring it out when you could have an Austin native, 30 year veteran of the scene take you on his personal tour of the best this town has to offer on a Monday night.

Will Taylor grew up and raised his kids in Austin, played in the Austin Lyric Opera orchestra, and leads a musical ensemble that has been a cornerstone of the Austin live music scene for over two decades. He’s also driven/guided folks around Austin via Uber for the past few years, drawing on his “insider’s” knowledge of this fantastic city. Being an ambassador suits Will’s extroverted and sparkly personality. He loves getting to know people & their passions, answering questions about Austin and its culture, and bringing people together for connection and exquisite musical moments.

Where you'll be
We'll start at a nature spot downtown. I'll be texting this to you on the morning of the event. I personally know many of the musicians who play residencies at three of the venues we will potentially visit. All depending on the musical tastes of our guests. Start times and meetup place is totally flexible. If the weather is great, we might start at a gorgeous green space or private home.
