Chicago’s own Future Rock have carved out a category largely their own, adding drifting elements of Krautrock and space rock to rhythmic textures that reference Motorik, funk and four-on-the-floor disco. Outside of hometown Chicago, they may be best known for high profile and excellent remixes of Daft Punk, Neon Indian, Black Moth Super Rainbow and DFA 1979. Back home they are justly celebrated for legendary performances such as their set at last summer’s Wicker Park Fest that turned the entire neighborhood into a vast and energized dance floor, forcing even the palest and most resolutely hard-to-impress hipsters to call up their inner dance masters. Live performances combine loops, samples and Mickey Kellerman’s keyboards with Darren Heitz’s drums plus Felix Moreno’s Larry Graham-style bass slapping to create an enormously powerful groove. Their light show is as good as their music, and their set have been known to inspire dance frenzies.
Damn Right! formed onstage at the legendary Baltimore venue, the 8X10. The members of the band immediately noticed a distinct chemistry and so did The 8X10. Over the next few years the 8X10 took Damn Right! under it's wing and allowed them to nurture their sound through seasonal residencies. These residencies helped the band to refine their signature sound through countless hours of improvisational dance music to the willing ears of Baltimore natives - who know a good party when they see it!
Since the birth of Damn Right! in 2007, the band has been performing all over the great United States of America. On its beaches, mountain tops, festival stages, and some of the most renown clubs and theaters to grace this great land. Throughout their adventures, Damn Right! has had some of the worlds most talented musicians sit in and record with the them including Aron Magner and Jon Gutwillig of the Disco Biscuits, Marco Benevento of the Benevento/Russo Duo, Billy Martin of Medeski Martin & Wood, Clay Parnell of Brothers Past, legendary drummer Johnny Rabb, and Bernie Worrell of P-Funk and The Talking Heads. These players add to the rich, sonic, fabric Damn Right! creates in a live setting.
Presently, Damn Right! finds drummer/producer/designer Tommy Bradel and bassist/producer Johnny Fissinger living in Philadelphia where they create music day in and day out. Their ever evolving signature sound is full of electronic breaks, hip hop samples, and pop synths which drive every show to be a full on dance party with special guests joining the group in a live setting.
This is the release of their new EP 'All The Colors' with tracks featuring guest artists like Marco Benevento, FLOTE, and more...
