The Victor plays the Elephant Room on March 14. The Victon/

Name: The Victor

Featured track: "New Year's Eve"

City of origin: Houston, Texas

In one sentence: "All of our influences from hip-hop, funk to soul and jazz find their way to the music," bassist and bandleader Victor Bernard told the Houston Press

Why we chose them: Named one of Houston's "Must See Jazz Acts" in 2013, The Victor is just the kind of multi-faceted, dynamic jazz we want to hear during our last Friday of SXSW. Plus, getting to see the band at the revered Elephant Room is a treat we just can't pass up. 

SXSW official showcase: Friday, March 14, 12:45 am at Elephant Room.
