Out of Austin, Texas, The Capitol leads the funk back into the popular music landscape. The Capitol sound is a mix of old and new; a rebirth of the glory age of the funk of the 1970s when large ensembles like Earth, Wind, & Fire, and Tower of Power dominated the nation’s airwaves. The Capitol’s brand of funk is tailored to today’s listener through careful attention to pop-inspired songwriting while paying mind to the modern influence of hip-hop, R&B, and Neo-Soul.
From the wilds of Jersey, Brian Scartocci is a retro-soul phenomenon making waves deep in the heart of Texas and beyond. Having spent the better part of the decade fronting bands such as "Austin Heat" and "Blind Lead The Blind," the call to return to his roots - soul and classic r&b music - has reinvigorated this gifted singer/songwriter. Scartocci is able to tap into the depths of the voice to bring you to a place that is warmly familiar, yet still unexplored and intriguing. It's that innate power that makes Scartocci a must-see performer. Onstage, Scartocci marvels audiences with guaranteed dynamic execution - often ending up offstage and in the crowd, clothes torn and drenched, never showing signs of fatigue.
