ROXY ROCA Review: The Modern Soul Band

Posted in The Screening Room by - April 16, 2015

I had the pleasure this last weekend to take some free time and go out for a drink and listen to some live music. For those that don’t know, music is my thing. It’s what I do, it’s what I study, it’s my occupation, some might call it my vocation. So any chance I get to go out and listen to a live band, I go, no matter where it’s at or even if I have to go alone. I go.

This past weekend I went out to The Foundry, which is an excellent bar here in Dallas. If you’re ever in town, I suggest you go. It’s open seating and reminiscent of classic German beer gardens. For a moment I thought I was in Austin. Just a fantastic atmosphere.

My experience with Roxy Roca was minimal before now. I’ve heard a few recordings and I dig their sound, but I had never been to one of their shows. Until this past weekend and holy shit, they are incredible. If you’ve never listened to them, that is something you need to remedy ASAP. Roxy Roca is the modern soul band. Yes, the same soul that emanated from the Blues Brothers and other classic soul groups, however, Roxy Roca gives it a modern twist and knocks it out of the park.

It isn’t classic rock, it isn’t country, it isn’t pop. Roxy Roca’s blend of sound creates a driving and energetic atmosphere that simply makes you want to dance and groove. Front man and vocalist, Taye Cannon, is simply incredible. His powerful stage presence and superb vocal command create what some could call a revival atmosphere and it is impressive to watch. This is band that you need to check out, and do it quickly. Their tour schedule is intense and this is not a show you want to miss. Check them out on Facebook and see if they have a show near you.
