Critics argue that The 9''s are “out of touch”. But was there ever a time ripe for a hybrid of 70''s jazz-rock, 80''s funk, soaring stadium rock with a healthy dose of wink-and-a-nod thrown in? Maybe not. But for the five guys in The 9''s, now is as good a time as any to restate their commitment to mindbending musical intricacy and pop shamelessness.
Described as "the future of music" by Alan Gorrie (Average White Band) The 9''s hail from Omaha, Nebraska - birthplace of the modern "Indie" movement.
Since their inception, The 9''s have shared the stage with The Average White Band, Parliament/Funkadelic, Maceo Parker, Sonja Dada, Ziggy Marley, and Bela Fleck.
