They are known for their legendary live shows and wacky antics, including throwing fried chicken and banana puddin’ into the crowd as well as inviting audience members on stage to dance.

But it’s more than just great fun; they are fantastic musicians to boot...Elmore Magazine: by Mike Cobb

Asheville’s Pierce Edens heard old-timey mountain music until his teens; that’s when he was steeped in punk and grunge. Both inform his music. His shadowy baritone has a dark, jazzy canter reminiscent of Tom Waits, while the percolating strings below it veer from bluegrass to closing-time cabaret. The punk manifests in the rebellious free-spirited nature of ‘Montana’
“The Get Right Band’s music combines styles from funk and rock n’ roll to reggae. Their melodies are a perfect blend of energy and fun supported by smart lyrics. It has been a real pleasure for me to collaborate with them creating the illustrations of their new album “Who’s in Charge?” which will be released this August. It offers moments of great funk and rock where the virtuosity of Silas Durocher’s voice and guitar are perfectly integrated with Jesse Gentry’s bass and JC Mears’ percussion.” Alessandro Arrigo, Peppertool (Jun 25, 2016)
