About Bobby Rush

The creator of a singular sound which he dubbed “folk-funk,” multi-instrumentalist Bobby Rush was among the most colorful characters on the contemporary chitlin circuit, honing a unique style which brought together a cracked lyrical bent with elements of blues, soul, and funk.

With a second Consecutive Grammy Nomination, performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, four Blues Music Award Nominations, film "Take Me to the River" in theaters, a release with Legend Dr. John -- It’s been a great year!


"…a high-voltage dose of authentic soul with a splash of revival spirit…"

"If you’ve never seen Roxy Roca then I pity you. Front man Taye Cannon is a living, breathing legend."
-- Ovrld

"Best of SXSW 2013"
-- BlackBook Magazine

"[ROXY ROCA] is a nine-piece powerhouse of southern soul."
-- The Vinyl District

"...everywhere they go their soulful, funky R&B infects crowds and brings out the dancer in all."

"Those who say real soul music is dead clearly haven't heard Roxy Roca. "
-- The Horn

"If you want funk, soul, and tight arrangements, no one in Austin does it better than ROXY ROCA."
-- Active Listener

"...more proof that soul is alive and well here in Austin. Roxy Roca is a must hear for fans of bands like Brownout, T-Bird and The Breaks and Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears."
-- Austin Vida

"...almost seemed like a religious experience as front man Taye Cannon sounded like he was channeling the spirit of James Brown."
-- The Horn

"Sacrificing bells and whistles, the Austin octet come right out of the gate with the right amount of everything – brass overlays, tons of funky rhythm, and a positive yet simple message to tie it all together."
-- I Live Music

"It’s all funky, sweaty, and polished-but-not-too-polished, and it’s a hell of a lot of fun."
-- Space City Rock

"Roxy Roca delivers powerhouse energy from beginning to end as Taye makes the most of every moment with old school dance moves, genuine audience interaction and heartfelt vocals. Combine that with well-written songs paying homage to all the Motown greats, a solid band line up and a snazzy horn section to boot, Roxy Roca can get any crowd grooving like they’re on the last episode of Soul Train."
-- The Deli Magazine

"If James Brown were white and from Alabama, he would be Taye Cannon."
-- We Listen Hear

"[ROXY ROCA is] one of the most energetic bands I've seen perform in a long time."
-- Boarding Pass TVS
