Time to get funky, Austinites! Flow Tribe has an upcoming show at the Parish next Thursday, July 31. Based in the Crescent City of New Orleans, all six members of the funk-rock band are NOLA natives and have a respectable following in the local community.
They have shared the stage with artists like Trombone Shorty and Junvenile, performed at major festivals including Voodoo Music Experience, Jazz Fest and Wakarusa, and toured across the country to play at the some of the greatest American venues.
With the exception of one, the members have been playing together for a decade now, with humble beginnings at Brother Martin High School. College split the band apart temporarily, but after Hurricane Katrina, they were reunited and began to focus more as a whole.
Self described as “backbone-cracking music”, the funk-rock sextet is a prime example of what homegrown New Orleans music is all about. They represent the next generation in second line street funk; though diverse, the band is deeply rooted in the traditions of the Big Easy and continue to be as eclectic as the Mardi Gras parades that inspire them. It’s a feel-good sound with great vibes that will keep you up on your feet and hands in the air while they share the heart and soul of their city.
Opening for Flow Tribe is local group the Berkshire Hounds. Since 2011, the band has played rock and roll garage brass jams in Austin and surrounding cities. Their new album, Are Not Amused, is available now on Spotify, iTunes, and Amazon.
Tickets are still available for purchase for only $9. This is an all ages show. Doors open at 8pm and begins at 9pm. The Parish is located at 214 E. Sixth Street.
