ROXY ROCA lead singer Taye Cannon recently sat down with Stephen Centanni from The Lagniappe in Mobile, AL for an interview in advance of our show in Mobile this Friday, the Movember Dance Party at O’Daly’s Irish Pub. Taye talks about the origins of the band (and the name), the changes Austin has seen over the past few years, and what the future holds for the band. Here’s a little of what Stephen had to say:
Each year, O’Daly’s Irish Pub becomes the Azalea City’s source for all things Movember, as its staff and dedicated patrons let their facial hair fly to generate money for the Movember Foundation, a philanthropy focused on men’s health issues. The Movember Dance Party will help collect funds for O’Daly’s Movember team, and they looked to Austin’s Roxy Roca to provide a fitting soundtrack for this charitable event.
In the past, Roxy Roca won over the BayFest crowd with what the band calls “Dynamite Texas Soul,” a mixture of Texas rock and retro soul. The group will be returning to Mobile with sounds from its latest release, “Ain’t Nothin’ Fancy.” Front man Taye Cannon spoke with Lagniappe about the band’s trademark sound, the Austin scene and what the future holds.
