Nashville-based experimental funk band Backup Planet brings their high-energy show to Barrelhouse South. Blending technical proficiency with huge hooks and funky flair, the quartet has gained a loyal following for their modern, innovative sound.
The band is touring in support of their second full-length album, Reactions, coming out on Friday, March 31. The record was recorded at Syncromesh Studios in Birmingham, Alabama with acclaimed producer Jason Elgin behind the board. Elgin, who’s worked with bands like Collective Soul and Maylene & The Sons of Disaster, worked with the band to highlight their intricate songwriting, musical prowess, and dynamic vocals.
Their flexible sound has earned Backup Planet opening spots for The Revivalists, Papadosio, and more, and led them to a deal with management firm Red Light Management, home of Dave Matthews Band, Phish, and My Morning Jacket.
Burlington, North Carolina’s Jive Mother Mary kicks off the show. The four-piece performs harmonious, anthemic Southern Rock with a soulful spirit.
