Brownout & Friends
A 9-piece outfit formed over ten years ago by members of Grammy Award-winning Latin revival orchestra Grupo Fantasma, Brownout has evolved into a musical force all its own.
After garnering their third Austin Music Award, the band has continued to produce music that is unflinchingly progressive, while evoking the classic influences of artists such as WAR, Cymande and Funkadelic. They’ve performed at events including two performances at Bonnaroo, High Sierra Music Festival, Pickathon, FFF Fest, Bear Creek Music Festival, Utopia Fest, Pachanga Fest, and Smukfest in Denmark. While regularly touring the U.S. Brownout’s also served as a highly in-demand backing band for artists including Prince, Daniel Johnston, GZA and Bernie Worrell.

Brownout has released four albums including "Homenaje" (Freestyle Records 2008), "Aguilas & Cobras" (Six Degrees 2009), "Oozy" (Nat Geo 2012) and "Brownout presents: Brown Sabbath" (Ubiquity 2014) with a fifth album slated for release later this year.
