Many thanks to Houston music blog Bobby Phats Online for posting a cool feature on ROXY ROCA recommending our show at Hotel Sorella on Friday, May 17.
Austin based Roxy Roca has been tearing up the Texas music scene lately, playing in front of anyone willing to listen. Their brand of “Dynamite Texas Soul” is spreading like a soulful virus, garnering fans across the state and beyond.
Many thanks to Charise Sowells from The Deli Magazine for a really cool article recommending our show on Saturday, 4/27 at The Scoot Inn with The LaRues.
“Give me some butter!” exclaims Taye Cannon, lead singer of Roxy Roca, a soulful funk band with a killer song about the classic comfort food we all know and love, cornbread. Who knew a song about food could be such a sexy good time? Roxy Roca delivers powerhouse energy from beginning to end as Taye makes the most of every moment with old school dance moves, genuine audience interaction and heartfelt vocals.
Combine that with well-written songs paying homage to all the Motown greats, a solid band line up and a snazzy horn section to boot, Roxy Roca can get any crowd grooving like they’re on the last episode of Soul Train. Come see for yourself at their upcoming Scoot Inn show with The LaRues this Saturday, 4/27/13. Doors open at 8.
We were pleased to see ROXY ROCA mentioned in a cool piece on SXSW 2013 in Urban Tulsa Weekly.
If my first two days of South by Southwest 2013 were a visit to the church of rock and roll and a restoration of my faith in music, the second half of my trip was a matter of being re-baptized in the faith.
We were excited to see ROXY ROCA mentioned in a SXSW 2013 wrap-up post on Dutch music blog KindaMuzik. None of us speak the language, so we don’t know what they said, but any time we see ROXY ROCA mentioned in the same paragraph as Charles Bradley and Charles Walker, we figure it’s got to be good.
Thanks to The Horn for this awesome SXSW Artist Spotlight featuring ROXY ROCA, including some great interview questions with Taye Cannon and Errol Siegel.
Those who say real soul music is dead clearly haven’t heard Roxy Roca. The Austin band has been tearing up the town with their voluptuous funk-infused soul music, and this year they will be hitting SXSW in hopes of spreading the musical gospel. Recently Neil Ferguson spoke with Roxy Roca’s charismatic lead vocalist Taye Cannon and guitarist Errol Siegel about the joys of being in an Austin soul band.
As you know, we’ve been working hard to reach listeners all around the world. We had no idea we’d reach the final frontier — space! “Try My Love” has now been added into rotation on Third Rock Radio, broadcast 24/7 in conjunction with NASA! Tune in and let them know you like hearing ROXY ROCA in the mix.
“Try My Love” was featured a little while back on the international music blog Stereofox. Check it out!
Some good old funk to get you through the last day before the weekend. A roaring voice that reminds one of James Brown combined with some horns straight from Tower of Power. Check out this amazing song and you’ll be hooked on something special. Roxy Roca shows us that proper funk and soul is not dead at all! It’s alive and ready to conquer your ears.
Influential NYC-based BlackBook Magazine and respected underground podcast Active Listener got together to take on the enormous task of listening to tracks from all 1200+ bands from SXSW 2013 to curate a list of what they considered to be the top 20. We were thrilled and humbled to see ROXY ROCA right at the top of their list! Here is how Eli Kooris from BlackBook describes the process:
I had some help from friend and music aficionado Aaron Albrecht, aka Active Listener, who has managed a respectable underground podcast covering South by Southwest and a wide variety of musical genres for the past few years now. We attacked the exhaustive task of listening to all this year’s 1,200+ bit torrents in this fashion: listen to each song once, for at least a minute. Pull your favorites, none of which could have made my list last year or are well-established artists (sorry Zion I, we still love you though). Then do the same thing with your favorites until you have narrowed the list down to around 60 or 70 tracks. Then we compare our lists, include the tracks that match and campaign for our other favorites through repeat plays, extended BBQ meals, shots of bourbon, and bouts of yelling.
