Funk/Reggae Rocked The House!

This was not the first time The Extended Play Sessions hosted The Get Right Band, a funk/reggae/rock trio from Asheville, North Carolina, so we knew to expect a dance party. Little did we know that more people would be on their collective feet for most of the show!

As I write this, knowing the band will return in the fall for a third show, I feel that The Get Right Band is our ‘house’ band. We are all comfortable with one another and that is evident in their performance.

Darlingside Is A Hit At The Armory

When I was introduced to Darlingside a couple of years ago at the Outside the Box Festival (an incredible free festival which is returning to Boston this summer), I remarked that I had discovered my new favorite band. I now see them whenever I can, most recently at Arts at the Armory. Yes, it’s an old armory which has been converted to an up-and-coming arts center.

This Boston-based band has developed a devoted following over the past few years that I have no doubt will continue to grow as they headline larger venues; this show was promoted by Bowery Boston which I hope will prove to be a lucrative relationship for Darlingside.
