The Get Right Band will be on our stage as part of their iTopia Album Release Tour, and we’re PUMPED!
The Get Right Band is a psychedelic indie rock power trio committed to relentlessly following their muses to honest self-expression, to whatever excites them and pushes them into unexplored territory, to capturing some version of truth. American Songwriter writes that the Asheville, NC based group, “filters 60’s/70’s psychedelia and 90’s alternative rock through a modern lens–as if Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and Nirvana co-wrote an album produced by Danger Mouse and Dan Auerbach.”
With their forthcoming album, iTopia, The Get Right Band establishes themselves as one of the few modern bands writing catchy pop rock music about timely, globally relevant topics. iTopia is a concept album in the tradition of Pink Floyd (even featuring Roger Waters and My Morning Jacket keyboardist Bo Koster on two songs), that explores issues of technology and social media and their massive impacts on our lives, personalities, and relationships.
iTopia is a story about all of us–and our vulnerability at even the slightest wrong turn. It’s music for grown up people (kids and adults alike) who know the world is falling apart, social media is pummeling our mental health, and technology is leading us down a dark rabbit hole—and who know that the antidotes are art, beauty, love, knowledge, community, and action.
The Get Right Band formed in 2011, built around the musical brotherhood that guitarist/singer/songwriter Silas Durocher and bassist Jesse Gentry have formed playing music together since middle school (25 years!). In 2013, the band enlisted Jian-Claude Mears on drums, and the trio set about inventing their own sound. Durocher, who is a trained composer and has been commissioned to write for symphonies and chamber groups, has guitar chops that can soothe or rage, with a charismatic swagger as frontman and singer. Gentry’s virtuosic bass playing “catapults from elastic to nasty” (The Mountain Xpress) and Mears’ powerful drumming has a “precision, passion, and inescapable momentum” (Live For Live Music). Over the years, GRB has defined their sound through constant evolution, building to the hook-driven, synth-heavy pop/rock/psych band they are today. The Huffington Post writes, “their songs are infectious and take you immediately to a place. The lyrics are smart and bear weight.”
The Get Right Band has shared the stage with Dr. Dog, Everclear, Cracker, UB40, Rusted Root, Smash Mouth, and Lifehouse; been featured on NPR’s World Cafe, Paste Studio, and WTF with Marc Maron; and performed at major venues and festivals including The Fillmore, Brooklyn Bowl, Theatre of the Living Arts, The Orange Peel, FloydFest, Bristol Rhythm & Roots, and Riverbend Fest. They have released four studio albums and a live album, and they have a new LP dropping April 7, 2023.
