Agori Tribe Announces 2016 Summer Tour Dates May 4, 2016 12:41
Memphis-based jam fusion group Agori Tribe has announced it's initial summer tour dates for 2016, and we're looking forward to seeing what these guys have in store this year. This run of shows kicks off on June 10th at Dave's Dark Horse Tavern in Starkville, MS. Additional dates include: June 11th in Oxford, MS (Round Table), June 17th in Knoxville, TN (Scruffy City Hall), June 18th in Asheville, NC (One Stop), June 24th at MadSummer Meltdown 7 (Schuylkill Haven, PA), June 25th in Arlington, VA (Sehkraft Brewing), and June 28th in Washington DC (Mousai Artist Coalition).
Agori Tribe was birthed in 2008 by founding members Sean Naughton, Will Nicholls and David Collins, while attending high school in Germantown, Tennessee (a suburb of Memphis). Naughton had been jamming with both Nicholls and Collins separately, and one day, they decided to all three get together. They knew after that first session that they wanted to form a band together. Keyboardist Dave Hash joined the band in 2009, and bassist Jeffery Naylor rounded off the current lineup in 2013.
Citing influences ranging from Herbie Hancock to Bob Marley and Shpongle to My Morning Jacket, Agori Tribe’s unique sound has been best described as “progressive psychedelic rock.” The band combines elements of blues, traditional rock, psychedelic rock, jazz, reggae and more to form songs that seem more like compositions.
