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 “weird rock” and “belligerent 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.
Performing extensively across the eastern United States, Opposite Box has shared the stage with various national headliners, such as Mike Dillon, Fishbone, Nappy Roots, That Handsome Devil, The Protomen, Lionize, Pimps of Joytime and Downtown Brown, across several of the nation’s most respected venues, including 1904 Music Hall in Jacksonville, FL; The Delancey in New York City; Legendary Dobb’s in Philadelphia, PA; JJ’s Bohemia in Chattanooga, TN; The End in Nashville, TN and The Hot Spot in Waynesboro, VA.
Members of Opposite Box have been performing together through various incarnations since 2001, however the most well-known and current touring version of the group has been performing together since 2012.
