Greetings! We are The Get Right Band, a funk/rock/reggae trio from Asheville, NC. We're making a record that we are incredibly excited about and we think you should be excited too! We've put our hearts and souls into these songs, and we've put about $10,000 of our own money into this recording so far. Now we're asking our community to step in and help us raise the rest of the money we need to really make this record right. Here's a video of us playing one of the songs from the album at a live show...

Did you like it? We really hope you did because we have fragile artist egos. Please like us. 

We're putting everything we've got into this next album. We are so proud of these songs and so excited to share this vision with you... but we have to do it right. We can't cut corners in the recording process because you get what you pay for. So we're paying for Echo Mountain Studios, the best of the best (if it's good enough for The Smashing Pumpkins, The Avett Brothers, Widespread Panic, Band of Horses, and G. Love, it's good enough for us!). The recording, mixing, mastering, and manufacturing of the album is expensive and we're going to need your help to do it the way it needs to be done. Crowd-funding is a grassroots movement... you take the place of the record company, you empower us to make quality recordings at a level we could never afford to do as an independent band.

Here's what you need to know about The Get Right Band... we formed in 2011 and have been touring heavily since then. Bassist Jesse Gentry and guitarist/singer Silas Durocher have been playing music together since middle school (Jesse had blue hair at some point back then, and dreads... yeah). We play high energy music; we make each night different from the next; we are a song-oriented band but we also incorporate a lot of improvisation and musical exploration. Sounds pretty cool, right? 

We've had the pleasure of hitting some very exciting career milestones like playing on NPR's "World Cafe," being named "On The Verge" by Relix Magazine, being named "Best New Band of The Year" by Home Grown Music Network, playing awesome festivals like FloydFest, Riverbend Festival, and Tropical Heatwave, and rocking venues with amazing bands like Rusted Root and Martin Barre (of Jethro Tull). We say all this, not to illustrate the growth of the band, but to brag ;)

So please get involved. Please support independent music. Please share this Kickstarter page with your family, your work colleagues, your FaceBook friends, your Twitter friends, your InstaVine friends, and, why not? even your real life friends. 

We love you, we appreciate you, and we thank you with everything we’ve got for your support.

Much Love,

The Get Right Band

Risks and challenges

Some backers want to know how a project is going to handle unforseen obstacles and what risks are involved in the completion of the project. Surprise obstacles and setbacks are such an inevitable part of the recording process that we've completely stopped thinking of them as surprises. All of us in the band have a ton of experience in the studio, and our engineer/co-producer, Julian Dreyer (chief engineer at Echo Mountain), has more experience than all of us combined. Anything that comes up will be dealt with quickly and efficiently by our team.

Jesse and Silas have been playing music together for over a decade and a half! This band has been touring and recording for 5 years. We've been through it all. We're ready for any obstacles that can be thrown at us.

We are well organized, well prepared, and very confident that, with your help, this project will be a huge success.
