Head to JJ’s Bohemia this Saturday for a local fave
With so many musicians and bands these days. it may be hard to find someone truly out of the ordinary, with a sound like you’ve never heard before. If you’re looking for a truly unique concert, then plan to head to JJ’s Bohemia on Saturday, Dec. 13 at 10 p.m. to watch Opposite Box take the stage.
Described as “a genre-bending experimental rock band,” that is “known for high-energy live shows and a seamless blend of jazz, rock, funk, punk, and prog” local favorite Opposite Box will rock JJ’s in their own special way.
Composed of members Ryan Long, Richard Long, Dave Graham, Ryan Guza, Curtis Warner and Matt Owen, Opposite Box combines the usual rock band instruments (guitar, bass, drums and keyboard), with ones not so commonly found outside the orchestra: trombone, sousaphone and tuba.
But, like any concert, the music is only a part of the experience. Known for including anything from belly dancers, fire-eaters and hula-hoop dancers, to guest musicians and the audience, the band’s overall stage performance is, to put it simply, theatrical.
Following the release of their debut album, Silly and Infantile, and continuing performances across the eastern United States, Opposite Box is one band that you’ll definitely want to keep up with. Like this Saturday.
