Inspired by bucolic atmospheres and themes that explore the most intimate feelings, Tequila Funk Experience propose an unpredictable rock held by folk and blues roots, which vocal harmonies and various features can rely on.
As a long journey, their guitars adroitly bounce between vigorous and airy sounds while the intersection of dynamics creates bright, blooming and dreamy atmospheres.
While going beyond various psychedelic paths, they never miss a choral sense of unity that distinguishes them in paths that sometimes melt and mix with dream.
Conceptually, Tequila Funk Experience care about specific topics such as "green revolution" and "zero impact".
Their self-produced album (strictly according to the philosophy of '90s DIY), is entirely made from recycled paper, without the physical presence of the cd, since they want to give their priority to "digital downloads" (directly from their website www.tequilafunk.com).
In their gigs, they often give space to different background artists who share these topics by giving rise to real "performing art events", where any kind of visual art is hosted (they have collaboration with the illustrator Lucio Cavallari, founder of "Cogito ergo summer" collective and the association of architects "Basso Profilo").
In August 2012 they played in various festivals including the BPM Festival in Florence and the Roadie Rock Festival in Reggio Emilia where they won the Kalporz Prize performing along with Julie's Haircut.
In December 2012 Ondarock (the most important italian webzine defined them "one of the revelations of 2012" and chose them at the tribute to Red House Painters in which TFE played their original version of "Lord Kill the Pain" (http://www.ondarock.it/speciali/ondadrops07.htm)
They are now touring around Italy playing in various clubs mainly in Florence, Bologna and Milan, and they reached the the Rock Contest 2012 Final (performing for two nights at the FLOG in Florence along with “Giardini di Mirò”).
Recently they also opened the show to the Gallon Drunk.
“Anyone who listens to us, without distinction, should identify with our sound and our art project”, that’s their purpose.
