If you are a Lowvelder and you are a fan of music, you must have heard of Jaime Negrao. The man who carried Gibraltar as well as Johnnie and the Latin Blues Express for years. We all were in shock when they announced their breakup in late 2018.
However, Jaime is not a man that rests, he is a musician with a passion to leave the crowds in awe. Hence the birth of Soul Taxi.
Soul Taxi has a very diverse sound, you can easily find them at a Sunday afternoon gig performing soft Latin blues; right after you have experienced their magic on a Saturday night of Bob Seger’s old time rock ‘n roll. In just a couple of months, they have already been receiving recognition, they entertained Nelspruit at the InniBos 2019 pre-show and rocked the socks off as the only local band at InniBos 2019 itself.
Jaime has always been known to experiment with different guitar styles, anything from Brian May’s “Red Special” tone to deep swampy blues. His young and inspiring nephew Sunny, on the bass, is one of the young leaders of the Lowveld music scene. He has done session work for Jonathan Peyer as well as Tuin and also had local music projects in the recent past. The musical jack of all trades a.k.a Neil, whose vast knowledge of instruments stuns the crowd every time. He can pull out a harmonica, wooden block, cowbell and heaven knows what else at any given time which gives Soul Taxi that special sound. Wynand behind the drums, is like a metronome. It will be difficult not to feel his many years of extensive experience behind the drums.
