Hard-working and constantly touring, Orlando's psychedelic funk-rock act Diocious is definitely making waves throughout Florida and the Southeast. The trio is riding a swell of shows through March, including three dates opening for the prominent San Francisco jam band Tea Leaf Green and a slot at the La Viance Festival in Central Florida. But with a three-day run of shows starting March 10, Diocious washes up on South Florida shores for the first time.
Diocious is composed of Alex Robertson on guitar, Josh Hoffman on bass, and Partin Whitaker on drums, with each sharing vocal responsibilities. They are serious players, and live, everything centers on improvisation and spontaneity. Still, it's all anchored in a progressive song style but also a driving dance beat. Check out this band before it blows up on the jam scene — and keep an eye out for the rainbow-spitting panda bear!
