Roxy Roca was firing on all cylinders Saturday night on the Acme Feed and Seed stage in Nashville!
Touring in support of their new album, Ainâ€™t Nothinâ€™ Fancy, is the Stag Records recording artist Roxy Roca. They kicked off the first of two free sets on Acme Feed and Seed’s “funkytonk” stage at 11:00 pm for a crowd that was more than ready for a party. A few notes into the Austin, Texas-based bandâ€™s opening song â€œGive a Man a Break;â€ the many who were there for bachelorette and bachelor parties, along with those just looking to celebrate another Saturday night, were already dancing and pushing toward the stage. It didn’t take long for Roxy Rocaâ€™s powerhouse sound, and an irresistible groove, to completely take over the room.
Roxy Roca followed their opener with a dozen more songs in rapid succession, including a sampling of songs from their aforementioned album, Ain’t Nothin’ Fancy, such as â€œBank Account,â€ â€œCornbread,â€ â€œLove Maker DeVille,â€ â€œWhen the Lights Go Down,â€ and the crowd favorite â€œTry my Love.â€
Their sound is infectious and soulful, their grooves are deep, and along with Taye Cannonâ€™s vocals, you just canâ€™t help but move your feet and have a good time.
After playing almost nonstop for over an hour on the hot and steamy main stage, Roxy Roca took a brief break to meet fans and take some pictures with the audience before their second set. Word must have traveled fast about the show as there was a line stretching down the street of people hoping to gain admittance for the second set, which was set to go until 2:00 A.M. Roxy Roca and the Acme Feed and Seed stage were a perfect match, as they delivered an outstanding performance. Their show is a guaranteed good time.
