DirtyGirl is an original 7 piece band from Birmingham, Alabama. There is only one way to contain the genre of DirtyGirl... PowerFunk. Formed in 2014 by original members Chase Graham, Will Smith, and James Daniel. As the musical fusion ensued, the 3 decided that a band needed to be formed. The three began playing small venues and open mics across the city.  As DirtyGirl slowly made a name for themselves in the underground market, they began expanding their lineup. After multiple names, and multiple different band members. DirtyGirl was established as a 7 piece line up, consisting of Willy " The Reverend" Smith singing lead vocals and playing harmonica, Chase "Teddy" Graham on guitar,  James " Boudreaux IV" Daniel on bass guitar, Jake "Mad Sax" Madonia on Saxophone, Eric Rick "James Norman" on trombone,  Reid "Built for comfort, not for speed" Fincher on keyboard, and Drew " The Funk Commander" Alexander on Drums. 

Opposite Box

Opposite Box is a genre-bending experimental rock band from Chattanooga, TN known for high energy live shows and a seamless blend of psychedelic jazz, progressive rock and dirty funk – dubbed “Belligerent Jungle Funk” – that is often compared to acts like Frank Zappa, Mr. Bungle and Parliament Funkadelic.

Opposite Box presents a theatrical live experience with an over-the-top, psychedelic atmosphere. Dazzling lights, a spectacular cast of characters ranging from belly dancers and fire eaters to live painters and costumed freaks and an organized cacophony of sounds and inspirations hearken back to a time when artists were more than still life paintings in the background performing the soundtrack to failed dive bar pickup lines and overly complicated drink orders.  Opposite Box challenges all in attendance to engage and react, allowing the audience to become the show.
