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 â€œgenre-defying dance party waiting to explode,â€ headquartered in Austin, TX. FoundedÂ in late 2014 by four acquisitive ascetics, they soon honed a distinct sound, oft described as â€œZappa meets OutKastâ€, 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, â€œan absurdist splatter of funk-rock, hip-hop, and jazzâ€ that sets audiences ablaze with their â€œpsychedelic Monty Pythonâ€ 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”
