Displace is a psychedelic, funk-fusion outfit with disco and jazz influences based out of Tampa, Florida. Known for their high energy, catchy vocals, and stirring improvisational passages, this dynamic genre-blending platform is a highly sought after, rising talent in the Southeast.
Though founded in March 2012, their lineup was not finalized until September of 2013. Since making these permanent changes, Displace has been on a major upswing. In 2014 the band played AURA Music and Arts Festival, Zach Deputy’s Disc Jam, and Blackwater Music and Arts Festival all held at Spirit of The Suwannee Music Park. They also completed their first multi-state tour in August, which included their first out-of-state festival at Soulshine Music Festival outside of Asheville, NC.
2015 was a great year with out of state shows and an appearance at Gasparilla Music Festival sharing the stage with acts like Modest Mouse, Mute Math and Gogol Bordello. The band also released their self produced, debut album, “Eureka!” on April 10th to a packed house at Crowbar, in their hometown of Tampa! Having completed a 7 night residency at The Hog’s Breath Saloon in Key West in June, and playing a huge set at Suwannee Hulaween directly after The String Incident on Halloween night, they only played a few shows the remainder of the year while they wrote new material for their sophomore album which will be released in the 2016.
The first quarter of 2016 is jam packed followed by almost 3 months off to finish their 2nd album with a release date set for late June. Following the album release will be their first national tour going into August.
The band has been direct support to Dumpstaphunk, Marco Benevento, TAUK, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, The Heavy Pets, Earphunk, and The Malah to name a few.
The Crowbar is my favorite Tampa venue. It’s big enough to hold an epic party, but intimate enough to maintain a connection with the crowd. I’ve spent countless nights on both sides of that stage, most notably for Snarky Puppy’s sold out show in 2014. I vividly remember standing outside afterward and envisioning doing the same thing with my own band some day. I call the Crowbar home for my student showcases, as well as for Displace. When we perform our second album release show there on the 26th, I want to sell the place out!” Chris Sgammato, Displace
Holy Miss Moley
Holey Miss Moley is a nine piece Funk-Flavored Rock-Soul Infused Groove Factory based out of Everywhere, Florida (St.Petersburg to Orlando). Their high-energy sound is reminiscent of old school 70’s funk melded with elements of Disco, Jazz, Soul and Hip-hop creating a superb fusion that delights and energizes the crowd getting people up and dancing all night!
The musicians in Holey Miss Moley have collaborated together for years and it shows through their tight-knit sound and well orchestrated music. Even better, they enjoy playing together and it creates an atmosphere of funky fun for everyone.
The band has recently been focused on spreading their wings throughout Florida playing festivals like Hulaween, Orange Blossom Jamboree, Connection Festival, Roosevelt Collier’s Getdown and Zach Deputy’s Disc Jam at Suwannee, Tropical Heatwave, Earthdance and Hometeam events.
Currently they are working on recording their music! You can expect a live EP by the end of the year and their first studio album by spring of 2016.
