Head out to First Friday enjoy a mixture of southern soul and swing music as the Brazos Valley welcomes The Nightowls at The Palace Theater on September 2 free of charge! The Nightowls of Austin have taken off following the success of two full albums and two EPs. They have been touring all over the country this summer in support of their new EP “Royal Sessions” that dropped July 15, 2016 as an extension of their most recent album “Fame Sessions” released in 2015.
The video for the song “Right Around the Corner” was released, and just like their previous music, it will make you want to get up and dance. After starting out in Austin, the band now records under Royal Studios in Memphis, TN. The members of the band include Ryan Harkrider, Amos Traystman, Rob Alton, Ben Petree, Oscar Interiano, Michael Rey, Andrew McElmore, Javier Stuppard, Ellie Harkrider and Tara Williamson.
The band infuses Motown and funk with horns, drums, and classic guitar. As the world’s music stage seems to be full of solo indie bands or big name pop artists, The Nightowls are a refreshingly different sound of big band and big excitement.
The unique sound of The Nightowls, with influences from both James Brown and Michael Jackson, will keep you on your toes and most definitely on your feet. The bands’ summer tour has been a huge success and it has landed them the opportunity to appear on major talk shows such as Wake up San Diego, Good Morning America, and many more.
The energy of this band makes for a truly unique and can’t miss experience. Coming from Austin, The Nightowls are a beloved band here in Bryan College Station. Make sure and catch them while they are in town before they head back to the rest of the tour! The doors for the show on September 2 will open at 7:30 pm with the Nightowls taking the stage at 8:00 pm.
