One of Relix Magazine’s “On The Verge” picks, THE GET RIGHT BAND is “hip-shaking, earthquaking pure funk fun” (The Alternate Root). Combining catchy, clever songwriting with musical expertise and fearless improvisation, the live show promises to make you shake everything you’ve got. From funk to rock n’ roll to reggae, this is a dance party.

Relix called the band “an ass shaking good time” and Martin Anderson of WNCW radio comments that “The Get Right Band is one of those acts that make Asheville’s music scene so vibrant and exciting. They lay down some very cool grooves.”

The Get Right Band has been wowing audiences around the country and the Caribbean with their unparalleled live show since their inception in 2011, playing such legendary festivals and venues as FloydFest (Floyd, VA), Music City Brewers Fest (Nashville, TN), All Go West Fest (Asheville, NC), Steppin’ Out (Blacksburg, VA), The 8×10 (Baltimore, MD), The Orange Peel (Asheville, NC), The Pour House (Charleston, SC), The Green Parrot (Key West, FL), Skipper’s Smokehouse (Tampa, FL), LiveWire (Savannah, GA), The Beach Bar (St. John, US Virgin Islands), and many more. The band has rocked hard and jammed relentlessly every step of the way.

Nice Couch is a regional touring rock band out of the mountains of Southwest Virginia. Their music has been described everywhere from Psychedelic-Funk to Progressive Rock and everywhere in between. Nice Couch pulls influences from Classic Rock to 90s Alternative while at times even touching on some Thrash-Metal and Punk. Blending these while not getting too far from their pure original sound, while letting the music come as natural as possible, Nice Couch has created some kind of a new sound described as SlayRock.

Place Called Home is a roots rock, blues and folk band based out of Roanoke, VA.

On a cold Virginia evening in autumn 2014 we lit up a cigar and kicked up our feet by a backyard bonfire. The conversation that ensued uncovered a longing for purpose, community, and comradery, on the road we call life. That night we wrote a song, and a band was born
