Spotlight: iLevel 360 Attended the Live Performance of Roxy Roca “Soul Personified”

Many thanks to Emily Stanfield from iLevel 360 for the great review of our show last weekend at Lowe Mill in Huntsville, AL as part of the annual Concerts on the Dock summer music series. Here’s a little bit of what she had to say:

iLevel 360 had the opportunity to attend the live performance of Roxy Roca.  The concert was amazing!  It was as if someone told him to sing like his life depended on it! That is how I would describe the soulful performance Roxy Roca front man Taye Cannon gave last night. The “house” at Lowes Mill was packed with locals, family and friends who are officially in love with the band.

Video from Freebirds! Stage at St. Vinny’s SXSW 2014

SXSW 2014 was an amazing, exhausting experience from start to finish — everything we’d hoped it would be! To send you on your way into your post-SXSW week of recuperation, we thought we’d share a little guerrilla-style video from yesterday afternoon’s show at St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store, courtesy of Dave Bevenger. It was a truly magical day of amazing music including sets from Middle Class MurderRodney “The Pie Man” HenryBig Gun ShowNoconaWIFEE and the HUZz Band (including a cameo from the inimitable Rosie Flores!), ROXY ROCASarah BorgesDrivin’ N Cryin’Shurman, and Whiskey Sisters. Many thanks go out to Sin City Social Club, Americana Music Assoc., Luckenbach, TXSun Radio 100.1 fm, and Twang! And, of course, extra special thanks to Shilah Morrow. Enjoy set-closer, “Happiness is a Choice.”

“Back from the Dead” Video Out Now

Check out the new ROXY ROCA video for “Back from the Dead,” the first single from our new CD, Basement Tapes Vol. I. It just went live and is already getting a great response. Many thanks to everyone for sharing the video on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, email, etc. and helping us spread the word.

About the video

ROXY ROCA and Outlander Productions got together and decided to have a little fun and make this zombie-tastic new video for you, just in time for Halloween! We hope you have as much fun watching it as we had making it.

The video was shot at our favorite Rainey Street watering hole, The Blackheart. Watch for an appearance from Electra Avellan (best known for her roles in Grindhouse, Machete, and Machete Kills).

We recorded the song this past March during SXSW in collaboration with Converse / Rubber Tracks at Big Orange Studio in Austin (mixed and mastered by Jason Richard at Clockright Studio).

Turn it up and get down!

Video from Free Week 2013 at Holy Mountain

Sean Claes from INsite Austin Magazine was at Holy Mountain to catch the Free Week show with ROXY ROCA, Money ChichaComo Las Movies (ex-Maneja Beto), and a DJ set from Peligrosa member Manolo Black way back in January. In addition to taking a great gallery of photos (check out the photos here: More Photos from Free Week 2013) Sean also grabbed some video footage. If you were at that show (or wish you were) here’s a little blast from the recent past to remember a killer night of non-stop grooves.
