- Event Details
Austin's first chicha group, incorporating the psychedelic sounds of guitars, fuzz, and reverb with heavy percussion, cumbia rythyms and the melodies of Colombia and Peru. Their music is an homage to the musical and cultural movement of the '60s and 70's that was known as chicha. Members of Money Chicha also perform with Grupo Fantasma, Brownout, Ocote Soul Sounds, Echocentrics and many others.
After a year of recruiting, woodshedding, and writing, Roxy Roca made their debut at an ACL Festival after-party. The wait was worth it. The band exploded out of the gate firing on all cylinders. "We felt like we had one chance to prove ourselves so we knew we had to leave it all on the stage that night."
Since that night, the buzz has spread quickly, leading to more high-profile shows with Mayer Hawthorne, JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound, Orgone, Brownout, Maneja Beto, T-Bird and The Breaks, and others.
The band continues to hone their chops and develop their sound. They recently went into Clockright Studio with producer Jason Richard to commit some sounds to tape, resulting in the band's first single, "Ain't Nothin' Fancy (It's Love)," a 60s-inspired slab of funk / soul grooves that would make Berry Gordy smile.
