Getting his start with Austin dark-wave punk band Mocktigers, Taye Cannon shifted his focus to put together Roxy Roca, pursuing his true love—soul music—and has since performed in shows with B.B. King, Fitz and the Tantrums, Mayer Hawthorne and T-Bird and the Breaks. Recruiting members one by one, Cannon serves up lead vocals for the now eight-piece Roxy Roca. With a horn-heavy, funky soulful sound, Roxy Roca’s vibe is downright groovy. The high-energy performances Roxy Roca gives are infectious, making it impossible not to dance.

“We’re a party band. We get people going. The songs are about love, freedom and liberation of the spirit,” Cannon says. “I play every single show like it’s my last show. I leave it all on the stage every time. You never know when it’s going to be your last show, so I try to keep that in mind. It’s always going to be real and it’s always going to be fun.
