Review of Continental Club show on We Listen Hear

Review of Continental Club show on We Listen Hear

Many thanks to Luke Murphree for the review of last week’s SOLD OUT show at The Continental Club with ROXY ROCA and The Happen-Ins on music blog We Listen Hear. Here’s what he had to say:

By the time the nine-member soul powerhouse known as Roxy Roca took the stage, the venue was packed. From the get go, one thing was obvious. The night would be sweaty and full of soul.

Roxy Roca opened with “Try My Love” an up-tempo, funky, crowd favorite that causes a ruckus. The heavy horns signaled that it was time to wake up and dance. Add to that Taye Cannon’s bustling stage presence and a lifeless crowd becomes a thing of the past. For their second number, the band played “Can You Handle It” and I wasn’t sure if the crowd could. Their music inspired shimmying and boogieing that looked a little dangerous for some of the fans, but when you’re there for a soul revolution who cares about a few sore muscles. Roxy Roca carried that intensity through the entire hour and a half show and the crowd never took a breather.

Experiencing Roxy Roca live offers a redemptive factor beyond hearing good music. Taye Cannon preaches to the crowd like any good reverend concerned with the souls of his congregation who wants to return those lost sheep to the flock. Roxy Roca preaches a gospel of love, happiness, and freedom. See them live and you’ll understand. The message doesn’t only show up in lyrics, but also in Taye’s occasional dialogue and even after the performance as the band enjoys fellowship with their fans.
