Critics argue that The 9s 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 9s, 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 9s hail from Omaha, Nebraska - birthplace of the modern "Indie" movement.
Since their inception, The 9s have shared the stage with The Average White Band, Parliament/Funkadelic, Maceo Parker, Sonja Dada, Ziggy Marley, and Bela Fleck.
