Space Capone to play Lollapalooza
Space Capone continues to thrive off its funk/soul/R&B sound, while giving it a fresh twist in 2014. Yes, they're still riding high from the release of their self-titled record back in 2012, the band now has a reputation as an outfit that really knows how to party.
Make no mistake, Space Capone just wants to dance … or so it says from its latest single, "I Just Wanna Dance." Our theory is that they're having one big dance party while working on new music (which they mention on their website), and we're sure fans can't wait to hear the next album. Until then, they're certainly content to see Space Capone on the road, as their live show is a mastery of feel good music.
Aaron Winters of Space Capone recently said, "If you want to hear pop music with integrity and class, not something watered, then get hip to Space."
Space Capone has already performed at the liked of Bonnaroo, ACL, Wakarusa, Bear Creek, Hangout Fest, LouFest, Summerfest, Rombellow, SXSW and more. And guess what? Their next stop is the famed Lollapalooza festival in Chicago on August 3, 2014. There they will play alongside other big names like Kings of Leon, Eminem, Arctic Monkeys, Skrillex, Lorde and many, many more.
The day before Lollapalooza, Space Capone returns to the Decatur Celebration stage following its 2011 debut. This time, they are scheduled for two headlining shows on the Funfest Stage – a true nod to their rising popularity.
About Space Capone (Created June 19, 2013)
Who (or what) is a Space Capone? Five years after their debut album, we're still trying to figure it out. Guided by lead singer Aaron Winters, AKA Space, the group's influence seems to thrive on the sounds of funk, soul and R&B. In fact, not much has changed since their debut album "Volume 1: Transformation" was released in the spring of 2008, expect for the fact that Space Capone's crowds have seemingly doubled in size since its early days. (Leading to the release of their self-titled album in late 2012 under AVJ Records).
Though Winters once said, "We've arrived on this planet to help save people from bad music," he wasn't exactly joking. The group is comprised of horns, electronics and a rhythm section of young musicians who are scholars of Space Capone's unique sound. It's a move designed to get them away from being labeled a 'novelty act,' and it sure seems to have done the trick. Not only have they blown up in their home community in Nashville, they've attracted a wide range of fans – everyone from young kids to hipsters. And Winters wouldn't have it any other way.
Though Winters' designation of Space Capone is actually an artist and not a band, per say, he points out the novelty of their live shows as being a revolving door of cast members. For instance, the drummer is always different and the keyboardist changes with every show. Then there are the bass player, the two guitarists and the horns… all elements that help Winters change into a 'different character' when he's on stage.
Always known for singing in falsetto, Space Capone and its 6-10 piece band continues to thrive on the live experience. Be sure to check them out at festivals like Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits and more.
