Stay Down live onstage and hear what everyone has been talking about!
According to Thao and company, there is nothing more important than being down, and being down by their definition encompasses
quite a lot. First, it means being aware of what's going on in the world, and that's reflected in their socially conscious
lyrics that look to highlight social injustices, all with a peppy bounce of course. Second, being down means boogieing - a
lot. It means an almost unhealthy obsession with dancing, but the way Thao sees it, there's no such thing as too much dancing.
For many artists, giving back to fans and the community means a charity concert or some other kind of fundraiser. It's
the rare empathizer who knows being charitable and connected is more than just writing checks, and nobody practices this ethic
better than Thao Nguyen, lead singer of Thao and the Get Down Stay Down. A longtime supporter and advocate for social change,
Thao is currently affiliated with the California Coalition for Women Prisoners, a group that looks to improve the quality
of life for female inmates. Through Thao's work with the coalition, she has been able to meet a score of women with stories
to tell, and their stories and their lives have seeped into Thao's music and lyrics and imbued them with a gravitas and poignancy
not seen in other bands.
Although the band may have started out in Falls Church, VA, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down always had an obvious California
spirit, and that undeniable affinity led the band to move to San Francisco, and since they've come to call the Bay Area their
home, their sound has evolved to include even more dynamic tonalities and progressive lyrics. The band has cultivated a strong
following in that artistic hub, creating a symbiotic relationship with the community, each growing stronger thanks to the
other. The band's latest album is clear proof the move was a wise choice, and everyone is excited to see what Thoa and the
Get Down Stay Down will do next.
Quirky yet incisive, playful and powerful, fast and loose, Thao Nguyen is a force of nature onstage. Every time she grabs
the mic, surges of electricity jolt from her and infuse everyone around her with a lively spirit and boldness. Her energetic
concerts drip with eccentricity and excitement, and while every show is different, every show is incredibly. With her band
The Get Down Stay Down, Nguyen is changing the face of music, and anyone who loves an awesome live show should see her perform.
