After humble beginnings in the small town of College Station, Texas the Band now known as “Larynx Music” began what they thought would be a slow and steady growing process. Playing their original music at various open mic nights, and other events in the college town home of Texas A&M University, Larynx’s music went viral and made it way across the map… On Monday August 20, 2012 Larynx Music recorded their first single “The One” along with “Circles” for their First EP ” Cosmic Love ” at ” New Fiction Studios” in Dallas, Texas with Producer Bryan David. This platform propelled their music off the ground like never before… Larynx Music seeks to inspire and to make the listener feel the pleading vocals, and thoughtful arrangements of every song. Their music will surely tap at you heart until you let them in.
“…It became clear that these guys were on a mission to funk. With one initial kick of the bass drum, the outdoor patio had been instantly transformed into a massive dance party that had every aggie out there grooving and moving…” – The Battalion. “The Conglomerate,” an explosive 6- piece Funk band from College Station, Texas has been dishing out invigorating, high-energy sets since May 2010. The group began as a collection of musicians who met through a common passion for jazz. After a period of experimentation, blending jazz principles with funk and rock influences, the members finally found the fresh, exciting sound they had been looking for and The Conglomerate was born. Complete with fat horn lines and vocals, captivating solos, and rock solid beats, The Conglomerate has a trademark sound that everyone can get into.
HI FI is a five member ensemble with a love of and addiction to performing classic and original rock and blues and they call Bryan/College Station Home. As a newly formed band in the area and growing local talent, HI FI is dedicated to the development and prosperity of the arts and culture of the Bryan/College Station community. Each memeber has decades of experience with playing music and live performance. They have brought all of their talents together to form HI FI. Now they are playing shows to support the growing live music culture in Bryan/College Station.
TAZ & COMPANY
Taz is no newcomer to the Bryan/College Station music culture as he’s performed shows and open mics since he began his college career at A&M. As a multi-instrumentalist, Taz’s lush harmonies and unique instrumentation have, over time, created a signature sound; a concoction of suave jazz, r&b, and almost anything else that can be played on six strings. His music can be described as electric and innovative, a blue fire pirouetting to be witnessed. This Friday he will be joined by fellow musicians Amy Westwick, David Johnson, and Brenton Kim to reinvent the craft of the acoustic experience. Using a wide variety of songs and instruments, this group will have you singing along to the classics.
