Watch & Listen
No one leaves a Roxy Roca show dissatisfied. A sonic shot to the arm of Texas infused, powerhouse-southern soul and funk complete with a certain tightness only achievable after playing an average of 200 shows a year. Roxy Roca shows are like stepping into a tent-revival somewhere in the Deep South, and crooner Taye Cannon is here to speak the gospel of peace, love, and positivity. Each tune flows over with hooky guitar riffs, funky backbeats, slammin’ horn lines, and lyrics of love, heartache, and a message that 'happiness is a choice', sung with a conviction and sincerity as only Roxy Roca’s Cannon can deliver.
Hailing from Austin, Texas, the band has grown in leaps and bounds in its seven-year existence. In 2015, the band had it's first official release, Ain’t Nothin’ Fancy, on Stag Records. Recorded at EAR Studio in Austin with producer Lars Goransson at the helm, the record captures the classic sounds reminiscent of Stax, Motown, and Domino Records.
Most recently Roxy Roca completed the recording of their second studio album at The Bubble in Austin with none other than Grammy Governor Chris "Frenchie" Smith (The Darkness, Toadies, Jet). With plans for release in early 2018, the band continues to play shows throughout the United States and will finish out the year with Roxy Roca's first ever Japanese tour.
Golden Dawn Arkestra
Golden Dawn Arkestra hails from a small planet in the constellation Cygnus, light-years away in the outermost reaches of the galaxy. The Arkestra conducts experiments involving space and time travel through the use of sound and movement. Their followers delight in these rituals; all bear witnesses to their higher selves and joyously bask in the eternal light that joins us all as one.
Armed with unique instrumentation that includes, horns, percussion, synthesizers, vibraphone and bass clarinet, Golden Dawn Arkestra combines deep grooves with cinematic textures. The theatric visuals of The Arkestra are enriched further by appearances from various dancers who, like the musicians, are adorned in shimmering garments reminiscent of intergalactic kingdoms of yore. Inspired to exuberance by ritualistic practices such as processions, chanting, and the power of the music itself, the audience falls into spellbound frenzies.
The Golden Dawn Arkestra returns from ions of spacetime travel to planet Earth bringing you their debut LP Stargazer. Since the critically acclaimed vinyl EP Golden Dawn Arkestra has travelled the space ways collecting even more intergalactic deities to join in their sonic experimentations. Stargazer brings you a grander more expansive sound that represents the joy and rapture that Golden Dawn Arkestra brings to audiences as they continue to spread a message of ecstatic consciousness.
