We are excited to announce that ROXY ROCA has been invited to perform at SXSW 2016! The South by Southwest music festival (aka SXSW) is the largest music festival of its kind in the world, with more than 2,200 “official” performers and bands playing in more than 100 venues. This year’s festival is scheduled for March 15-20. Stay tuned for more announcements including details on our official showcase as well as other SXSW-week events.
Many thanks to Lyn Dowling for including a nice mention for ROXY ROCA in her article in Florida Today on the upcoming Mardi Gras celebration in Cocoa, FL with Blues Traveler on Saturday, February 20. Check it out:
Roxy Roca is good, really good, and it may not be a household name now, but it will be.
There’s a great feature by Kyle Hilliard on ROXY ROCA in today’s Charleston City Paper including an interview with singer Taye Cannon. Here’s a little taste:
There’s something gloriously unfiltered about the music that Roxy Roca makes. On a surface level, the Austin-based outfit are a quintessential soul band, complete with big, brassy horn lines and funky grooves that grab hold of the ticking heartbeat of a dance floor and never let go. But there’s a roughness to the sound, a sort of DIY-punk sensibility that comes across not in terms of rudimentary musicianship or aggressive tempos so much as in the unfettered glee they take in dispatching song after song with hardly a breath in-between.

Fly Me to the Moon was a definitely one of the highlights of our winter tour. The snow was coming down and the air was frigid, but that didn’t stop Telluride from coming out in force for an epic get-down. Many thanks to Victoria Player for sharing these photos from the show.
Another epic night at The Continental Club, this time with our good friends Tomar and the FCs. Many thanks to our good friend Milton Otto for this awesome gallery of photos from the show. Stay tuned for another gallery from that night coming soon.
