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 Music Festival in Central Florida. Now the band washes up in South Florida for the first time.
Diocious is composed of Alex Robertson on guitar, Josh Hoffman on bass, and Partin Whitaker on drums, with all sharing vocal responsibilities. They are serious players, and when they perform 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!
