“The Get Right Band are the type of performers that you just know will break out. Their songs are infectious and take you immediately to a very happy place. The lyrics are smart and bear weight.”

-The Huffington Post

THE GET RIGHT BAND is “hip-shaking, earthquaking pure funk fun” (The Alternate Root). They are one of Relix Magazine’s “On The Verge” picks, Home Grown Music Network’s 2015 “Best New Band of the Year,” and were voted “Best Progressive Band” in Western North Carolina by Mountain Xpress readers. Combining catchy, clever, honest songwriting with musical expertise and fearless improvisation, the live show promises to move your head, heart, and hips.

GRB has performed on the famed World Cafe, a nationally syndicated NPR show, and has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Everclear, Rusted Root, Dr. Dog, Ozomatli, Smash Mouth, Victor Wooten Band, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Boyd Tinsley (of Dave Matthews Band), Martin Barre (of Jethro Tull), Badfish, Turkuaz, Jimmie’s Chicken Shack, Mike Dillon Band, and many more.

“Tight and diverse jams and a distinctive, intellectual but accessible worldview.”

-Live For Live Music

The band is built on the musical brotherhood that guitarist/vocalist Silas Durocher and bassist Jesse Gentry have formed playing music together since middle school. Durocher, who is a trained composer and has been commissioned to write for symphonies and chamber groups, possesses guitar chops that can soothe or rage and a charismatic swagger as a frontman and a singer. “Durocher has an impressive range and rich clarity to his vocals—think a more soulful Dan Auerbach” (Connect Savannah). Gentry’s virtuosic bass playing “catapults from elastic to nasty” (The Mountain Xpress). With the addition of Jian-Claude Mears, a drummer with “precision, passion, and an inescapable momentum” (Live For Live Music), the group’s sound has become an unstoppable force. They have been wowing audiences around the country and the Caribbean since their inception in 2011 with an unparalleled live show and a relentless tour schedule.

“I love this song!”
-Marc Maron, of WTF podcast
