The Get Right Band

The 11th season of Concerts on the Creek continues Friday with a performance by The Get Right Band from 7-9 p.m.

“The Get Right Band are the type of performers that you just know will break out. Their songs are infectious and take you immediately to a very happy place. The lyrics are smart and bear weight.”-The Huffington Post

They are one of Relix Magazine’s “On The Verge” picks, Home Grown Music Network’s 2015 “Best New Band of the Year,” and were voted “Best Progressive Band” in Western North Carolina by Mountain Xpress readers. They have performed on the famed World Cafe, a nationally syndicated NPR show, and have brought their unique sound to major festivals and venues such as FloydFest, The Orange Peel, Music City Roots TV Show, The Green Parrot, Arlene’s Grocery and Riverbend Fest.

The band is built on the musical brotherhood that guitarist/vocalist Silas Durocher and bassist Jesse Gentry have formed playing music together since middle school.

Concerts on the Creek are held most Fridays from 7-9 p.m. at the Bridge Park in Sylva through Labor Day weekend.

Everyone is encouraged to bring a chair or blanket. The events are free, but donations are encouraged. Dogs must be on a leash. No alcohol, smoking or coolers are allowed in the park.

Safe COVID-19 practices in accordance with state and county protocols in place at the time of the event, are strongly urged, organizers said.

These concerts are produced by the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce, the Town of Sylva and the Jackson County Parks and Recreation Department.
