Psychedelic party folk from Austin, Texas
Winner of this year’s Austin Music Award for Band of the Year
Brass Pro and the Waterfront Revivalists
Calliope Musicals is a cheerful psychedelic party folk band from Austin TX. Their high-energy live performance focuses on involving the crowd. A squad of musicians fill in their folksy roots with a mix of vibraphone, tribal drums, bass, lead guitar and explosive vocals. The band exudes feel-good vibes that aim to swallow listeners and spit them out as happier versions of their former selves.
To label Calliope Musicals a band might be selling them short, because—while the six-piece group’s primary medium is music—their live show is an auditory, visual and genuinely transportive experience.
The band played here in the summer of 2016 and everybody that caught them fell in love with them. They are currently engaged in a month-long Tuesday residency at Arlene’s Grocery in NYC, with a little regional touring throughout the week…
“Stephen compared the group’s energy and showmanship to that of the spiritual jazzman Sun Ra…the Austin band presents a rich and swirling example of modern space-rock done right.” — Bob Boilen, NPR All Songs Considered
“Calliope Musicals has created one of the most incredible stage shows in the country, complete with their own pink unicorn and confetti cannon. This is not a concert to be missed.” — Talent Monthly Magazine
