Quirky. Sexy. Funky. Heavy. These are the exact words that people all over the Southeast are using to describe the Chattanooga, TN experimental funk band OPPOSITE BOX. Stealing bits and pieces from almost every genre imaginable, Opposite Box is a band that constantly pushes the limits of what is musically possible. Unlike other so-called "Tour de Force" bands, however, OB has the ability to back up musicality with wild stage antics and intense live performances, which have become the bands' signature trademark.
Opposite Box has shared the stage with some of the countryâs biggest up-and-coming acts, including âbuttfunkâ rockers Downtown Brown (DC Records) from Detroit and the insano-aquatic metal group Shrimp! (Originology Records) from Long Beach. OB also participated in Nashvilleâs 2009 Localpalooza festival, Chattanoogaâs own 2009 Sweetwater 420 Festival and the third annual Chattanooga Tattoo Arts Festival. In the same year, OB headlined the infamous Road Rash Biker Bash, were the named the #3 Metal/Harder Rock band in Chattanooga, TN by the Chattanooga Pulse Magazine and opened for hip-hop group Nappy Roots. A year later,
Opposite Box joined forces with JMJ Productions (www.jmjpresents.com), performed at the 2010 Road Rash Biker Bash, opened for national act The Protomen at Chattanooga, TNâs 2010 Boneyard Boogie Halloween Festival and released SILLY AND INFANTILE â the groupâs first full length production- on October 29th.

"They have layers of thrash, reggae, blues, punk, hard rock, and maybe even a few things weâve never heard before. They really get the audience pumped with aggressive yet fun beats." -- Melanie Mumea/Road Rash Magazine
âThe alt-rockers, whose influences are all over the place, are guaranteed to make you smile, if not shake your head.â â Enigma Magazine, Chattanooga, TN
"I havenât heard a bad thing about these guys. They are fun and energetic, one would even say theatrical as much as musical. Staying involved with the audience, this band is the perfect party band. Pop-funk-alternative vibes allow the trombone and bass to work together in order to keep everyone in the room shakinâ. They will be joining in the CD release fun at JJâs Bohemia on January 27. You can also check out their track with Nappy Roots on their Facebook page." -- Tara V./Chattanooga Pulse
