March 6, 2014. Asheville funksters The Get Right Band return to Boone Saloon Thursday, March 27 with local opener Wave Lynx. The show begins at 10:30 p.m. with a $6 cover fee.
The Get Right Band, guitarist/vocalist Silas Durocher, bassist/vocalist Jesse Gentry and drummer JC Mears returns to Boone Saloon for the third time after recent East Coast and Caribbean tours.
A self-proclaimed high energy funk/rock/reggae trio, The Get Right Band promises a dynamic live performance of catchy, funk-filled, danceable original music.
“People can expect a groovin’ show and to dance,” said bassist Jesse Gentry. “Whatever the genre, our goal is to get butts moving.”
The band’s debut album, Shake, was released in 2013 to critical successes, though the band anticipates 2014 will be their busiest year yet with performances at major festivals like FloydFest and a Kickstarter campaign for their first full-length album.
The band plans to perform songs off of their upcoming album, though audiences can expect to hear a few older originals as well as covers with a new twist.
“We play 80 or 90 percent original music, most of the tunes we’ll play are going to be on the album,” said Gentry.
“We do play covers and older tunes but we’re trying to keep them fresh so it’s not the same old thing, we do a lot of our tunes differently every night.”
The Get Right Band’s set will be preceded by Boone’s Wave Lynx, a newly formed eclectic groove trio.
“Wave Lynx has a jammy feel to them and we try to be malleable to the situation at hand so given that they’re more jam-based, we’ll probably jam out a little too,” said Gentry.
The band finds influences not only in good music, but also in life experience, as indicated by their unique name.
“I feel like most people have some general idea about what ‘getting right’ is, it’s a personal thing,” said Gentry. “‘Getting right’ isn’t necessarily behaving properly, it’s doing what you need to do to be at one, for some people that’s getting out and listening to good music. We try to do it right and get in to that right head place.”
