One of the highlights of SXSW for us last year was playing the Freebirds Stage at St. Vinny’s so we didn’t have to think twice about saying yes when they asked us to perform at this year’s four-day event. The line-up was announced today all over the press and social media, and it’s all killer, no filler! Look who’s playing this year: Ray Wylie Hubbard, Ian Moore, Jonathan Tyler, American Aquarium, The Mastersons, Kevin Kinney & Friends (from Drivin’ N Cryin’), T Bird & The Breaks, Jesse Dayton, Rosie Flores, Two Tons of Steel, Deadman, The Berkshire Hounds, Roxy Roca, Buggaboo, John Evans Band, Shurman, JP Harris & The Tough Choices, Ronnie Fauss, John Arthur Martinez, Annie Marie Lewis & Danny B Harvey, The Memphis Dawls, Mark Edgar Stuart, Nocona, Kristin Diable, The Seratones, Josh Buckley, Rodney “The Pie Man” Henry, Middle Class Murder, Paul Renna, The Bar Brawl III, Jake LaBotz, Sol Driven Train, Charlie Overbey & The Broken Arrows, Chris Porter, Luke Bell, Brian Whelan (from Dwight Yoakam’s band), The O’s, and Lucette.
We were very excited to wake up this morning and see our new album, “Ain’t Nothin’ Fancy,” (released today, by the way) featured on the front page of New Releases Now. Here’s what they had to say:
Austin, TX-based Roxy Roca is a southern soul powerhouse, stirring up your spirit with a gritty and infectious sound influenced as much by soul and funk as by early rock ’n’ roll and ’70s psychedelic funk. Formed in late 2010, the band quickly developed a reputation for getting a room on its feet and in motion with a sound that has been described as Dynamite Texas Soul – driving, horn-powered southern soul with certain explosiveness and swagger that is distinctly Texas, and that is present on their Stag Records debut album, Ain’t Nothin’ Fancy.
