Bayou City Funk is a versatile deep funk/soul/jazz fusion outfit that mixes tight grooves, full horn melodies, and soulful vocals into positive and energetic live performances.
Bourgeois Mystics is a multi-regional, for-profit, personal growth cult and “genre-defying dance party waiting to explode,” headquartered in Austin, TX. Founded in late 2014 by four acquisitive ascetics, they soon honed a distinct sound, oft described as “Zappa meets OutKast”, and infused their music with the fundamental principle that profit should always trump basic human welfare.
The band has been recognized for their virtuosic musicianship & songwriting as well as their live shows, “an absurdist splatter of funk-rock, hip-hop, and jazz” that sets audiences ablaze with their “psychedelic Monty Python” tongue-in-cheek humor and bombastic energy. Notable accomplishments include sharing a bill with George Clinton, a national tour, over 150 shows, runners-up recognition in the 2018 Austin Music Awards, and winning the “Keepin’ It Weird Award” at the 2018 Austin Music Video Fest for their video “Jaan Pehechan Ho”
