March 12th, 2015

The people of Huntsville need to brace themselves come Thursday, because a force of spirit-shaking music is about to roll into town. That force is Austin based soul band Roxy Roca, and they are on a divine mission to awaken the funk in all of us.

Recently signed to Houston label Stag Records, this seven-piece powerhouse is touring the Southeast to promote the release of their new album, Ain't Nothin' Fancy. What can you expect from a Roxy Roca show? Lots of hip-shakin', earth quakin', soul revival music, led by Alabama native and lead singer Taye Cannon. Backing up Taye's fiery sermons are a fine assortment of bass, guitar, drums, and a classy brass section.

Roxy Roca is bringing their dynamite swagger to the Humphrey's patio this Thursday at 7pm.
