"The King Of Pop Meets The Purple One"
The Fritz is a soul-driven dance rock band hailing from Asheville, NC. The group’s aggressive approach to funk, soul, and rock creates a sound that is uniquely their own. Their high-energy, danceable songs provide a platform for each member to shine. With powerful vocals, climactic solos, and tight grooves, The Fritz has built a devoted following and is captivating audiences everywhere.
Conjured in the summer suns of Tuscaloosa, Alabama with roots now in Atlanta, LaGoons breathe a unique breeze of air into the world of jam music. Step into a show and listeners will immediately hear their distinctively goony sound. Deriving influences from Blues/Funk/Jazz and the Unknown, LaGoons are committed to the live concert experience. With each show their goal is to reach the highest level of energy possible, performing rehearsed compositions that leave plenty of room for improvisation and the audience wanting more.
At their core, LaGoons is a power trio consisting of bass, drums, and guitar. However, do not be surprised at any given show to see the band cull some of the area's top talent to add to the sound. Since their inception, the band has shared the stage with acts like Earphunk, Zoogma, Ron Holloway (Tedeschi Trucks Band), CBDB, Funk, Atlas Road Crew, and others.
Founded in Tuscaloosa in 2013, LaGoons have recently nestled into their new home of Atlanta, Georgia. The band is working hard to spread their sound throughout the Southeast, breaking into the Carolinas, Virginia, Tennessee, Floriida, along with various parts of Georgia and Alabama with no plans of slowing down. They are currently recording their debut album, set for a 2018 release.
