[Review] The Opiuo Band Live at the El Rey: Bands Make Her Dance

01 July 2015 - - - The DJ List


After an animated, live performance at this year's Lightning in a Bottle Festival, The OPIUO Band set their sights on their North American tour - crushing cities, one by one. Hailing from Australia, Opiuo has been taking the EDM world by story with his unique fusion of Funk, Hip Hop and Soul. When he's not headlining shows on his own, he has a full livetronica band featuring a kickass drummer, guitarist, saxophonist and a sultry vocalist.

Last Friday, they came through Los Angeles' famed El Rey Theater with local Headtron favorite JOBOT on opening duties and literally blew the roof off of the joint.Roaring through revamped hits off their Meraki and Butternut Slap EP's, the crowd dissolved in a heated frenzy on the dancefloor - a perfect round-up of their tour.
