Music Road Co is a powerhouse band known for its dynamic stage presence and a focus on vibrant dance music that feels good and spreads positive vibes. With a world-beat approach, the band brings together a collective of accomplished musicians to create original music with a fusion of genres including funk, rock, island reggae, afrobeat, & Latin tunes. This project digs through a wide and deep catalog of tunes and musical traditions to get you groovin’ and your hip bones movin’!!
Where does Music Road Co find its inspiration? And why does it connect so perfectly with audiences of all ages and backgrounds? The answer might lie in their widespread roots. Coming from such diverse places as South Africa, Ecuador, Cuba, Key West, Maryland, New York, and Virginia, the band brings many cultural influences together to produce music without boundaries.
The band’s rhythm section is made up of expert musicians, with a driving bass line that anchors each song and propels the audience to move. The percussion adds depth and texture to the sound, incorporating traditional rhythms and intricate beats that keep the audience engaged. The horn section is a standout feature, adding rich layers of melody and harmony that are both soulful and powerful. The guitar & keys are equally impressive, with electrifying solos and grooving rhythms that showcase the band’s versatility.
MRCO has opened for chart-topping Michael Franti & Spearhead at Rocky Mount’s Harvester Performance Center and for The Original Wailers at Roanoke’s Elmwood Park amphitheater. They regularly perform at regional venues, community gatherings and festivals, including Floydfest for several consecutive years.
Music Road Co is bound together by one common ideal: Music should feel good and spread positive vibes. They get on stage to lift themselves up to a higher frequency and they won’t stop until they bring the entire audience with them!
