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

"Hailing from historic Charlottesville, Virginia in 2015, The Barons manage to combine youthful themes of love and fear with their ethereal, booty shakin' rock n’ roll music. Fresh into their twenties, The Barons are frontman Peyton Alley, lead guitarist Josiah Ragland, drummer Ryan Boone, and bassist Kirtland Gray. With multiple sold out shows in the US college scenes, headlining 50,000+ festivals, a national headlining US tour and supporting the tours of top Billboard artists (i.e. Judah and the Lion, Catfish and the Bottlemen, etc.) all behind their back, The Barons have quickly developed their arena potential. Only 6 released singles are currently to the band's name, but there's no question their writing is prep for an LP. Songs like Plane, Rattle, and Hands On really stand out to me as the essence of rock n' roll. Loud guitars that yearn to cut through the road less travelled. And other singles : Mary Anne, Light Up, and Crown appear as the band's approach to young love. Mary Anne specifically has received the majority of this via national iHeart Radio and college radio play. All of their tunes grasp the art of both rock n' roll and pop music. Rock yet easy enough for your Springsteen mom to swallow. Pop yet just enough for your local virtuoso to tell you it's not sold out. All in all, The Barons are Charlottesville, Virginia's most intriguing musical export since the Dave Matthews Band."- Kent Romska (iHeart Radio Executive).
