Flow Tribe
Flow Tribe
Few bands arouse a crowd into a collective shake like Flow Tribe. The six-member band's onstage chemistry reflects a seamless combination of soul and movement that hits the audience within the first few notes. Virgin listeners and avid fans alike are drawn in by the distinctive sound that feels both familiar and original. Outfitted for each performance in colorful, carefully selected suits, it's clear their focus is sharp and the party has begun. This is the work of professional musicians who've found their passion, and are living a dream where everyone's welcome.

Second line brass and Cuban-Caribbean rhythms meld with R&B, soul, rock, and hip-hop beats in high-energy performances that turn every show into a celebration. New Orleans is influence itself, the unparalleled free and easy city weaving its way into track after track of original scores that make up a single definition of sound, which Flow Tribe has dubbed "backbone-cracking music."

K.C. O'Rorke (vocals, trumpet), John-Michael Early (harmonica, washboard, vocals, keyboard), Russell Olschner (drums), Chad Penot (bass, vocals), Bryan Santos (guitar, timbales), and Mario Palmisano (guitar) are native New Orleanians and high school pals who've been writing music and playing live shows since the band's inception in 2004. Post graduation, they went their separate ways, but after Katrina, each returned to their hometown, inherently becoming active members in the rebuilding of a community that's stronger than ever. Flow Tribe may well be the city's next music ambassadors.

With two full-length albums and several EPs under their belt, the crew is currently building Downman Sounds, a studio in New Orleans East where they expect to cut their next record. The Tribe can be found crisscrossing the US just about every week of the year, from Key West to California, including regular performances at the notable New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Fest and Voodoo Fest. Look for their next project to be released in early '17, a full length album produced by New Orleans's own Mannie Fresh.
Shaws of Awe
Shaws of Awe
Hailing from central Texas Hill country, the Shaws of Awe have grooved their way to the forefront of the Texas Funk Movement. Since their beginnings, in the early summer of 2015, the Shaws' eclectic style of "Jaw Dropping Funk" (Texas State University magazine, June 2016) has very quickly made them a favorite amongst audiences of all ages, and with their unique, and tasteful, blend of Psychedelia, Blues, Rock, and Funk, it shouldn't be hard for any music lover to see why. With unrivaled musical virtuosity, soulful, and smooth vocal melodies, screaming guitar solos, and the grooviest, funkiest, gonna make your body move so you can't help it kinda breakdowns, the Shaws have something for everyone. With qualities reminiscent of that of the Temptations, Funkadelic, and the Allman Brothers, to name just a few, this is a show that you simply owe yourself not to miss!


With an eclectic cast of talented members no Shaw's show is ever the same but sure to please! Guitarist, Johnny Storbeck leads the project with face-melting Psychedelic/Blues shredding accompanied by fellow Guitarist Andy Fulton who keeps the Funk flowing sly and groovy. Rex Simmons holding down the keys with growling Organ and jazzy Rhodes he will take you places you never thought possible an absolute must see. Ben Slade on Drums accompanied by Carlos Aguilar on Percussion together, keep your feet moving and booty shakin' till you cant handle no more with nasty Funky Bass laid down by Payden Price. Lead Vocals for Shaws is frontman Luis Aran who brings the band together in more ways then one! With his soulful voice and raw vocal inflections Luis Aran will have you on your toes and (Shaw Struck). An undeniable good time and come prepared to Funk the night away!!!
