Darryl Morris Band
Darryl Morris Band
Darryl Morris is a gifted minstrel who offers a blend of acoustic music that is introspective and reflective of life's deeper meanings and mysteries. He strives to offer everything one would crave in a songwriter - passion, originality, and important message that encourage listeners to know themselves a little better.
A transcendent singer-songwriter, Darryl has been influenced by those who have a message. The primary and spiritual sources of his music come from such activists as Dr. Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, and Angela Davis. He has also been musically influenced by the brilliance and the melodic imagery of Jimmy Hendrix and Freddie Mercury of Queen, and the lyrical perseverance of James Taylor, Tracy Chapman, Bernie Taupin, and John Waite.
Darryl has been welcomed and received as a solo acoustic artist in various venues and some of the finest Colleges and Universities throughout the country. Darryl would like to have the opportunity to perform music that can be experienced by all people of the world regardless of age, sex, color and/or ethnic origins. His main goal is to make a positive impact on an individual's consciousness by creating music to be enjoyed and remembered.
Bourgeois Mystics
Bourgeois Mystics
Bourgeois Mystics is a 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 slowly bloomed into a multi-national sonic powerhouse, focusing their expressive musical talents on a completely original sound reminiscent of the abstract wit of MF DOOM, zany cheesiness of The B-52's, epic arrangements of Ennio Morricone, and funky grooves of Jamiroquai, all culminating in a distinct sound that’s been described as “Zappa meets OutKast”.

In addition to their success amassing disproportionate amounts of wealth by running a massive click-farm operation using state of-the-art mechanized-chicken labor on their 38-acre commune in Buda, TX, 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". Other career highlights include sharing bills with George Clinton & Grupo Fantasma, their runners-up recognition in the 2018 Austin Music Awards, winning the "Keepin' It Weird Award" at the 2018 Austin Music Video Fest for their wild take on the Bollywood classic, "Jaan Pehechan Ho", and their prestige as a current top 4 finalist in consideration for a $25,000 grant from The Recording Conservatory of Austin.

This August, the band celebrates the release of their latest single, "The Most Spiritual", a slammin' dance-funk, holier-than-thou hip-hop banger, by embarking on "The Most Spiritual Tour" (very likely to be the highest-vibrational musical road show in all the western half of the material realm of the United States in August of 2019), with anchor dates in Seattle, Chicago, and Petaluma as the Lagunitas Beer Circus house band.
