The rain came down hard, but that didn’t keep us from having a fantastic time at Old Settlers Music Festival in Driftwood, TX this past weekend. Lucky for us, Old Settlers attendees are made of tough stuff — they weren’t afraid to get down in the rain and mud with us! A special treat: Texas legend Ray Wylie Hubbard told us that he watched our entire show and really enjoyed it! How cool is that?! Check out some photos from our set, courtesy of our good friend Milton Otto.

Many thanks to Sean Claes from INsite Austin for featuring ROXY ROCA as one of their top picks to watch at this weekend’s Old Settlers Music Festival. Here’s a little of what he had to say:
Roxy Roca has been playing around the Austin area for a few years now. When I caught them playing a small club a few years ago two things amazed me.
1. How could nine band members squeeze into that tight corner at Holy Mountain, and
2. How vocalist Taye Cannon could command the rooms attention like he was a Circuit Preacher and you had to hear the Good Word.
