The Get Right Band (from the album Live in Asheville available as a self-release)
No introduction, no boasting about the band. A drumbeat kicks off Live in Ashville, setting a groove for The Get Right Band on first cut, “Hearts and Bones”. Capturing the performance presents TGRB as citizens of the world, Live in Ashvillestriding in on a slow strut as The Get Right Band tell of the necessity for live music with “Nothin’ on the FM” while the guitar chews up thick notes, spitting them back out as a persistent beat the cruises along beside the pleas of “The Carpenter’s Daughter”. The Get Right Band plugged in and played for a hometown crowd on Live in Ashville, release number four for the group and their first live offering.
Disembodied voices converse with snippets of sonics before falling together behind chord chops and flickering drumbeats to come alive in “Requiem for the Chemical Memory” while Live in Ashvillerolls out a rumble for the rhythm as The Get Right Band go with the flow when “Shut Yo’ Mouth” spits out its story. The melody bubbles underneath the barely-veiled threats of “Who’s in Charge?” as Live in Ashvilletraipses along behind a wiggling guitar riff into the funk of “Dancin’ Shoes” and walks to a Reggae rhythm to keep on dancing with “Devil on My Shoulder”. Putting their performance on full display, The Get Right Band jams as they liberally sample style, stepping between rock, reggae, and funk seamlessly. The voices of The Get Right Band join together to sing the group’s mantra as they harmonize over the tripping beats of “We Work All Day” and borrowing from The Buggles, Live in Ashevilleoffers a version of “Video Killed the Radio Star”.
