This event is 18 and over
For nearly seven years, the guys from TreeHouse! have spent the majority of their days as road warriors blazing sprawls of highway and at night playing an unapologetic enthusiastic blend of reggae jam rock they are know for in venues across the nation.
TreeHouse! songs resonate in your soul. With lyrics filled with rising above adversity, gratitude, and unity. For every setback, there's a step up waiting for you if you keep your focus. For every day, there's a blessing to count and for every event, we must recognize we are a part of it all. It's this kind of message that makes the most recent studio album, Lifted, their strongest release to date.
"The message of Lifted is best portrayed in the simple words inside the cover: Love. Peace. Gratitude. Compassion. Positivity. Awareness. Empowerment. Awakening. Enlightenment. Our endeavor is whatever we can do to realize and actualize these concepts within this world" says Frontman Jeremy Anderson
In 2010, lead singer Jeremy Anderson and drummer Trey Moody formed the foundation of the American Reggae Jam Rock band TreeHouse! With a high five and a dream, they jumped into a passenger van to travel the country and share their good vibes. Along the way they picked up fellow band members Joe Harley on Keyboards/Theramin/Vocals and the talented Scott Nichols on Bass.
Throughout the years, the band has collaborated with other up and coming artists in the genre including Sun-Dried Vibes, Oogee Wawa, and others, building a like minded community they call "Brother Bands. "
"We use the term “Brother Band” for any band with which we frequently work and vibe together. We often only work with other bands who work as hard as us, so our Brother Bands are those on the same long path. We use this term to indicate the Family vibe and cohesiveness of our scene of mostly East Coast Reggae Rock bands, with the idea that we can all do more together than we can alone. We have a nice community building around this idea. The Family-Community Vibe is one of the most important messages we can portray in the ultimate endeavor of Unity and One Love."
After teaming up with musical idols like The Wailers, 311, Dirty Heads, Pepper, Stick Figure and SOJA along their journey and in the spirit of the bands who laid the road before them, these road warriors continue to spread their roots coast to coast.
The TreeHouse! single, "Blessings" was picked by Stephen Marley and Ky-Mani Marley as one of the top 10 songs out of hundreds of contestants in the Marley's Music Uprising, because they felt this song exemplified the spirit of Bob Marley.
"I drive long hours, I carry heavy equipment, and I fully exert myself every night, but I see these experiences as training and growth, and I find peace and joy in them before we even get on stage for the fun part. The live show itself heals me every night. I write these songs, to some extent, for my own sake. If I am to sing this song every night, I try to make it beneficial for my own being and implant within it a message that I may need to hear, myself, for reassurance in my journey. Whenever we are feeling overwhelmed with our path, someone comes like a messenger from the universe and feels the need to express how much we’ve affected their life for the better, just by doing what we do. That’s what always keeps us going."
TreeHouse! is currently in the studio working on a new album to be released in 2018.
Opposite Box is a genre-bending experimental rock band from Chattanooga, TN known for high energy live shows and a seamless blend of jazz, rock, funk, punk and prog – dubbed “belligerent jungle funk” – that is often compared to acts like Frank Zappa, Mr. Bungle and Parliament Funkadelic.
Opposite Box presents theatrical live performances with a funky-acid-pirate-circus atmosphere that can include dazzling light shows, over-the-rail and off-the-stage interaction from stage performers that involves the audience and a spectacular cast of characters that features belly dancers, fire eaters, hula hoop dancers, guest musicians and more.
After leaving his home state of Iowa, traveling the world, touring over 200 days per year with a band called, The Effects and opening for bands such as the Kings of Leon, Shinedown, Foreigner and the Toadies, Krantz made the decision to “live the dream” and eventually landed in Nashville. Krantz hit the studio between tapings of MTV’s music competition, American Supergroup where he eventually became a finalist in the competition. Following the release of his self-produced solo album, Krantz joined forces with Erik Theiling (bass), Tee Tallent (keys) and Monica Lewellen (percussion/vocals), who he met on the Broadway circuit. Together they bring a psychedelic/pop/rock edge equipped with an in-your face attitude, intertwining provocative lyrics, and authentic, no-holds rock and roll. Krantz embraces frantic ecstasy and introspective depths, alternating between crazy antics, a dash of face paint, and a meaningful look within. The new record takes on several personalities, drawing influences from pop to reggae to artists including, The Beatles, Weezer and T Rex, among other golden age rock acts.
Stay tuned as Krantz announces more material throughout 2018 and continues to revive rock ‘n roll’s spirit with a modern edge.
