The Bus Stop Stallions are a modern day version of the seven piece 70's and 80's funk/soul/dance outfits and have been rocking the Live Music Capitol of the World for the last several years. The Bus Stop Stallions have been steadily building an audience in and around Austin with their brand of soul/rock ranging from "spacey jazz fusion" to "bubbly bass lines and a heavy dose of synthesized keys..." (Austin Chronicle). Their high energy live performances consistently get the crowd on their feet and to the dance floor.
The Bus Stop Stallions can be found playing consistently at local Austin standards The Saxon Pub and Momo's. They have played numerous other Austin institutions, including Antones, The Backyard, Austin Music Hall, The ND @ 501 Studios, La Zona Rosa, The Belmont, Speakeasy, Flamingo Cantina, Pine Street Station, Aces Lounge, Maria Marias, Beso Cantina, Room 710, Headhunters, and RutaMaya.
Always involved in the Austin scene, they played the First Look Festival for the grand re-opening of Austin's beloved outdoor venue The Backyard; the Austin Convention Center during a Texas Lonestar Rollergirls bout; the Old Pecan Street Festival; Fox 7 TV's Good Day Austin morning show; The Austin Music Hall for the United Sounds of Austin: Las Nubes of Hope, Harmony and Peace concert; Kenny Dorham's Backyard for the Black Star Coop Brewery; and Scholz Garten for the Blues for Blue Skies benefit.
They constantly tour the region including Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, Corpus Christi, Kerrville, Georgetown, San Marcos, and Marble Falls. They have completed two tours of the western states, where they played the Viper Room and the Mint in LA, The Stronghold in Venice, Winston's in San Diego, Mojito's, Union Room, Biscuits and Blues, and Kafe van Kleefe in the Bay Area, as well as venues in Temecula, Fresno, Sacramento, Eureka, Portland, Reno, and Pueblo.
The Bus Stop Stallions give a new life to the nostalgic days of 70's and 80's funk-soul, while giving an extra push with some pure, unadulterated rock and roll. With influences such as Sly and the Family Stone and Stevie Wonder, they have time-warped the sound into what some call "James Brown 3000". Whether it is the band's original songs or innovative renditions of classic cover songs, the crowds can't help but move their feet. Performing live music is what drives the band, and it shows in their performances. Their passion for playing live leads to shows that are each unique and dynamic instead of playing the same exact set night after night. The band's familiarity with one another and skills on their respective instruments allows them to improvise live without losing their audience's attention span.www.busstopstallions.com
