Funk, Rock, and Reggae with The Get Right Band
The Asheville-based funk/rock/reggae band The Get Right Band is guitarist singer Silas Durocher, his longtime bassist pal Jesse Gentry, and drummer Chris Pyle—and yes, if the words “drummer” and “Pyle” ring a bell, turns out that Chris is related to rock n roll royalty. His dad is former Lynyrd Skynyrd drummer Thomas Delmer “Artimus” Pyle. Get Right’s got a new album out: The Get Right Band, and they’ll bring several selections to the Triad next weekend at Bull’s Tavern in Winston-Salem Friday night at 10:00PM. But first they’ll need to pack up their gear and head home from St. Thomas Island in the Caribbean. It was there that David Ford caught up with the band huddled around their cell phone.
We sample from their new self-titled album. You can hear the band in Brevard live at the Phoenix on Tuesday night January 28th and they’ll be in concert Friday night, January 31st at 10:00 PM at Bull’s Tavern in Winston-Salem.
