Hello! We’re The Get Right Band and we’re doing a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to record our first full-length studio album. And we need your help! Please support this project by becoming a backer and helping spread the word to as many people as possible. Independent music is a grassroots movement that relies on people like you, not record companies, to make diverse, original music possible. Your involvement and participation in this project is the only way it will come to life. Please join our musical movement.
The Get Right Band is a funk/rock/reggae trio based in Asheville, NC that has been playing together since 2011. We combine catchy songwriting with musical expertise and fearless improvisation. We’re all about high energy, fun music that gets you moving. Like this...
Is it okay if we brag for a minute about some of the things we're most proud of? We're one of Relix Magazine’s “On The Verge” picks and The Alternate Root called the band “hip-shaking, earthquaking pure funk fun.” We like that. The Mountain Xpress described our debut EP as “groove with rock melodies built on funk attitudes” and Hittin' The Note Magazine wrote that the disc is “fun, full of energy and excitement, and should be listened to with the volume turned all the way up.” Well said.
We also want to mention that we'll be playing some great festivals in 2014, including FloydFest. That's one of our favorites... Lauryn Hill is one of the headliners! Maybe she'll sit in with us :)
We’re incredibly excited to record our first full-length album. We’ve got a lot of songs that we’re very proud of and that we’ve been getting great feedback on from fans at our shows. So we’re really looking forward to putting these onto a recording that will allow us to share our music with more of our fans and friends. We know it’s going to be great! Our musical vision for this project is extremely clear.
Every penny raised by the Kickstarter campaign will be used for studio time, paying the engineer and co-producer, mixing, mastering, and printing the CDs. It’s an expensive process, but we’ve carefully made a budget that strikes a balance between working quickly and efficiently and giving ourselves enough time to do what we need to do artistically to get the best possible final product.
Your help is absolutely necessary and deeply appreciated… every dollar counts. The way Kickstarter works, if our project isn’t fully funded, we won’t receive any money at all. We truly cannot do this without you, our community. So please contribute to our campaign and share this video with your twitter friends, your facebook friends, your real life friends, your co-workers, your loved ones, and any random strangers you encounter.

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, Matt Williams, 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! 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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
