HARD PROOF

Hard Proof has been establishing itself as an Austin institution ready to bring the party to the rest of the world for the past 10 years. The Austin-based ten-piece collective of musicians known as Hard Proof began by studying the blueprint of Fela Kuti’s Africa 70 band, as well as funk and jazz from the whole of sub-Saharan Africa. Founded in 2008, Hard Proof features members of Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears, The Calm Blue Sea, Cougar, Spoon, Black Pumas, and several other notable Austin acts.

The band is currently mixing some new material at Danny Reisch’s studio in Lockhart, TX.

Upcoming HARD PROOF Shows:
3/12 – Official SXSW Showcase
3/19 – AMF Presents Locally Grown at Hotel Van Zandt
3/22 – Oskar Blues Brewery
