Glide Magazine review of show at The Parish with Lee Fields and ROXY ROCA

Glide Magazine review of show at The Parish with Lee Fields and ROXY ROCA

Many thanks to Neil Ferguson from Glide Magazine for the great review of Thursday night’s sold-out show at The Parish with Lee Fields & The Expressions. Here’s what he had to say:

Getting the evening rolling was Austin’s own Roxy Roca. The up-and-coming group is part of a handful of local groups specializing in white-bred soul music that have emerged in the last few years. What sets this group apart from the pack is the tightness and dedication of the band and their frontmant Taye Cannon, who possesses a smoky voice that isn’t so much smooth, but feels gritty, authentic, and is at times reminiscent of British blue-eyed soulsters like Rod Stewart. Despite it only being an opening set, Cannon appeared to be putting everything he had into the performance, enhancing upon his Alabama roots and bearing himself to the crowd with blazing Southern passion. By the end of their set Roxy Roca worked the crowd into a dance frenzy, setting the proper vibe for what would follow.

Many thanks to Austin music blog Ovrld for recommending tonight’s show at The Parish with ROXY ROCASam Pace & The Gilded Grit (CD Release Party!), and Mighty Mountain. Check out what they had to say:

If you’ve never seen Roxy Roca then I pity you. Front man Taye Cannon is a living, breathing legend. They find the perfect middle ground of old school funky soul that this city is missing. With elements of jazz, polished blues sound and an explosive showy rebel rock attitude, Roxy Roca is one of the most entertaining performers in Austin right now.
