We were very excited to start seeing some international press for our new album, “Ain’t Nothin’ Fancy.” Check out this great review in Sonic Soul from Germany: ROXY ROCA “Ain’t Nothing Fancy” in Sonic Soul.
We played our debut show at The ABGB in south Austin a few weeks ago and it definitely won’t be our last! The staff took great care of us, and it was a wall-to-wall dance party, just like we like it. Many thanks to John Gutierrez for sharing this gallery of photos from the show (plus one bonus photo from our good friend Milton Otto).

Many thanks to Neelesh Vasister from Uberchord for putting ROXY ROCA at the top of the list of Austin bands to watch at SXSW 2015. Here’s what they had to say:
These guys are an 8-piece ensemble with that coveted ‘oomph’ factor every funk band aspires to. You know what I mean. Roxy Roca is carnal funk music which absolutely drips with bravado. The sort which totally hijacks the motor control over your face. Your mouth contorts into a drooping grimace, your brows furrow and your head can do naught but strut back and forth like a pigeon. This isn’t the band to politely nod along to. This is where you groove your ass off.
