Calvin Get Down is a good time booty shakin’ funk band based in Asheville, NC. They consist of a screaming horn section and one of the tightest rhythm sections in the game. Their combination of retro funk and laid back groove music is sure to get you out of your seat and moving.

“we couldn’t recommend listening to the [Birds Say] highly enough.” - Pop Matters

Give a listen and you’ll see why all these folks listed above sing their paises.

The Get Right Band

High Gravity Stage at the Taproom at Sierra Nevada Mills River, NC 6pm to 8:30pm - Free Show

The Get Right 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 front man 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.

Achilles Wheel

Tickets go on sale February 18th at 10 AM and they’re available at http://www.sierranevada.com/brewery/california/big-room or in person at the gift shop.

The Rock/Roots monster out of Nevada City that is Achilles Wheel once again will bring their high energy brand of rock and Dead inspired jams to the Big Room. This is a band that’s on the move and it’s only a matter of time before they just explode on the national sceen. And, I’m not the only one who feels this way. Here is a review of their show from this years High Sierra Festival.

“I caught the Achilles Wheel set at the Big Meadow. These guys are bound for greatness so make sure to check them out while they still play smaller venues. I give these guys one more year before we see them headlining venues like The Fillmore in San Francisco. Their honest and homespun approach to rock is infectious as noted by the swaying crowds. I can’t get enough of the Wheel!” - Michael Pegram JBO (Jam Bands Online)

If you like to dance and you have plenty of energy, we’ll see you there.
