BOOGIE T.OUR ft. BOOGIE T.RIO + MERSIV - Nashville
BOOGIE T.OUR // BOOGIE T.RIO
Enter BOOGIE T.RIO, the next phase in the evolution of Boogie T’s journey🤘🎸
The band consists of BOOGIE T. on vocals + guitar + keys, with longtime friend and musical cohort Frank ‘Animal Drums’ Castro on drums, and noted New Orleans musician-about-town Andriu Yanovski on keyboards + synth bass.
An accomplished guitar and piano player by the time he was in grade school, Brock Thornton – aka Boogie T – was never a stranger to the blues. He played his first gig at a local Mardi Gras event when he was 11. As a kid he would bring his Stratocaster to the local bars with his dad. He’d join his fellow blues cats in all-night, improv jam sessions. He called them “the original back-to-backs.”
“I’ve been in bands since I was 11, so it’s nothing new,” he says. “I’ve been wanting to do a live project for a long time, but I think its finally the right time in my career to make it happen.”
Given his extensive blues and funk history, it wasn’t surprising when he announced the debut of his latest, live band project. The Boogie T.Rio consists of Boogie T on guitar, Andriu Yanovski on keys and synth, and Frank Castro on drums.
Born and raised in the swamps of Louisiana, playing and writing music since the tender age of eight, Brock Thornton aka Boogie T has come along way to bring the low end ruckus. Hailing from the South, the cradle of soul, it is easy to hear this influence in his music. Riddim, Dubstep, Bass, whatever you want to call it, for Boogie T it has always been about entertaining. Whether singing, playing guitar/keys/bass, acting, DJ’ing or producing, Boogie T's goal is simple: make great music and connect with people by taking risks and pushing boundaries. And these risks are paying off as Boogie T is set to explode!
With releases on Atlantic/Big Beat, SubCarbon Records, Circus Records, SMOG Records + more coming, and recent dates across the country and beyond with Ganja White Night, Snails, Trollphace, Funtcase, Midnight Tyrannosaurus, Minnesota, G Jones, LOUDPVCK, Skism, pOgman, Riot Ten + many more, and now gracing the stages of festivals such as Big Dub, Imagine, 515 Alive, UpNorth, Dreamscape,and Nightmare Fest, Boogie T is blazing a path from bayou the to the main stage!
