Austin, Texas, you’ve done it again. One of America’s most fertile environments for musical creativity has given us yet another stellar, unforgettable band. Allow us to introduce you to The Bright Light Social Hour. Since blowing people’s minds and walking away with six awards at SXSW’s Austin Music Awards in 2011, the band has been taking their unique blend of Southern rock, R&B and psychedelic funk to the masses. Guitarist/vocalist Curtis Roush is nimble and fiery on the slide and both he and keyboardist/vocalist A.J. Vincent imbue the band’s sound with gritty, soul vocals. The rhythm section of bassist Jack O'Brien and drummer Joseph Mirasole is Bright Light’s deeply funky engine. Their reputation for energetic live shows precedes them. We think you’re ready for this great, new discovery.
