The Center for the Arts presents Roxy Roca
Self subscribed Dynamic Texas Soul. Based in Austin, a music mecca and hotbed for creativity and big sound. Vocalist and ring leader Taye Cannon: "I grew up in the Deep South immersed in my dad’s music — Jackie Wilson, Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, James Brown. Basically, if it had a groove, my dad had it...When Motown 25 hit the TV it was all over — I knew this was what I wanted to do. I remember staying up all night with my cousins, emulating James Brown and Michael Jackson in our grandfather’s carport." Taye eventually lived out that dream, recruiting members and forming Roxy Roca.
As Reverbnation.com says, "There's an unmistakable honest and gratifying feeling when you leave a Roxy Roca show, like you've been to a funky revival, and drank the poison. The art of get down and soul evangelism!"
