The Get Right Band
The Get Right Band
"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. They have performed on the famed World Cafe, a nationally syndicated NPR show, and have brought their unique sound to major festivals and venues such as FloydFest, The Orange Peel, Music City Roots TV Show, The Green Parrot, Arlene's Grocery, and Riverbend Fest. Combining catchy, clever, honest songwriting with musical expertise and fearless improvisation, the live show promises to move your head, heart, and hips.

"An ass shaking good time."
-Relix Magazine

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

On August 5, 2016, The Get Right Band released their third studio album, Who's in Charge? The record was made at Asheville's legendary Echo Mountain Studios (Widespread Panic, Zac Brown Band, Smashing Pumpkins), engineered, mixed, and co-produced by Julian Dreyer (The Avett Brothers, Dawes, Band of Horses), and mastered by six-time Grammy winner Brian Lucey (The Black Keys, Grace Potter, Dr. John, Beck). The album has received praise and support from such giants as The Huffington Post, NPR, Relix, WTF with Marc Maron, Live For Live Music, PopWrapped, and dozens of radio stations around the country. While seamlessly blending a number of different genres, the CD is held together by The Get Right Band's honest songwriting, fierce playing, and strong self-identity. The powerful songs and the pop/rock/psychedelic approach to production puts the album in the realm of acts like My Morning Jacket, Dr. Dog, and The Black Keys (with hints of Sublime and early Chili Peppers).

"Tight and diverse jams and a distinctive, intellectual but accessible worldview."
-Live For Live Music

The Get Right Band has had the honor of playing shows with national acts such as Galactic, Rusted Root, Victor Wooten Band, Martin Barre (of Jethro Tull), Turkuaz, Mike Dillon Band, Jeff Sipe Trio, Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band, Jeff Coffin's Mutet, Larry Keel, and Bobby Lee Rodgers.
