Many thanks to Peter Blackstock for featuring ROXY ROCA‘s weekly residency at C-Boy’s Heart & Soul as Wednesday’s Music Pick on Austin360. Here’s what he had to say:
One of the busiest bands around town these days is Roxy Roca, a seven-piece horn-driven soul outfit whose new album, “Ain’t Nothin’ Fancy,” spotlights the gritty vocals of frontman Taye Cannon. They’re often found in the 10 p.m. Wednesday slot at C-Boy’s; come early for a 6:30 p.m. happy-hour set by sensational singer Malford Milligan performing in a trio with John Gaar and Dave Sebree. No cover for either show. 2008 S. Congress Ave. cboysheartnsoul.com.

Preview in Jackson Free Press for Mal’s St. Paddy’s Day Festival featuring Trombone Shorty, Dumpstaphunk, Brown Sabbath, and ROXY ROCA
We were happy to see this great preview in the Jackson Free Press for Mal’s St. Paddy’s Day Festival in Jackson, MS this weekend featuring Trombone Shorty, Dumpstaphunk, Brown Sabbath, and ROXY ROCA. Here’s what they had to say:
Like its brothers in Brownout, seven-piece Roxy Roca from Austin, Texas, benefits from its musical hometown. Vocalist Taye Cannon’s early years in Alabama were a meld of punk rock and classic soul. After moving to Austin, he formed his first band, Mocktigers, which leaned heavily toward the former, but at heart, he still considered himself a soul singer. Roxy Roca began to take shape after Cannon met guitarist Errol Siegel. Since the horn-fueled soul-funk band debuted at an after-party for the 2010 Austin City Limits Music Festival, Roxy Roca has performed with major acts across the board, including Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, B.B. King, and all three of its St. Paddy’s Parade co-stars. The band released its Stag Records debut album, “Ain’t Nothin’ Fancy,” in late February.
