New Orleans isn’t shy of hometown heroes. We take pride in our swamp-bred creatures, and riddim and funk man Boogie T. might be one of our favorites. In addition to DJing, he debuted his live band the BOOGIE T.RIO during last year’s festival season.
Performances at Electric Forest and Voodoo Festival showcased the Louisiana native’s funk chops. The band’s sound is a nice mixture between jam band, electro-soul, and live bass. The ability to sprinkle in some Boogie T bass-heavy classics creates a show for dubstep fanatics and live music lovers alike. What could be more New Orleans than that?
If you missed your chance to see the band this summer, we’ve got you covered. River Beats Nola is sponsoring the complete, North American BOOGIE T.RIO tour. The tour features a variety of hard-hitting support acts, with Mersiv & Vampa on full support and Russ Liquid and Esseks switching out dates.
The tour kicks off with a two-night, hometown run at the Joy Theater this weekend. Presented by Winter Circle Productions, the lineup includes some heavy hitters and local favorites. Friday’s lineup includes Boarcrok, Sexual Thunder, and Russ Liquid! Saturday night brings sfam along with Toadface and Esseks to the stage. Both nights also promise a little Boogie T. DJ action before the live band starts.
