Opposite Box is a rock band from Chattanooga, Tennessee known for seamlessly blending a wide variety of shifting genres and psychedelic soundscapes, including 70s-inspired progressive rock, contemporary jazz-fusion, psychedelic funk and R&B.

OB is focused less on improvised jamming, and more on uniquely transportive songwriting, playful lyricism and high energy live performances.

“…These boys ain’t right in the head, not by a Long shot. That’s just one of the reasons they’re so damn good. Their live performances are nothing less than electrifying.”Scott Hopkins/Music Fest News

“Opposite Box, [who] has always been a controlled explosion on stage, still keeps that improvisational feel while adding funk and jazz to the mix.” – Dave Weinthal/Enigma
