The Birmingham, AL indie band Downright has inked a deal with Nimbleslick Entertainment agency in Athens, Georgia. "We're thrilled to be working with such an accomplished band," says Nimbleslick's David Limentani, Downright's new agent. "Big things to come in 2015 and beyond!"
Wes Keith, Downright's manager, cites the signing as a next step in the band's professional development. "We've booked a lot of shows for a lot of years," says Keith. "It will be great to have Nimbleslick help us achieve the next step in the band's career by booking bigger rooms, festivals and help us land shows with top tier artists."
Downright has long been one of the southeast's favorite bands. Led by musicians Steve Lewis and Matthew Devine, Downright continues to explore new sonic ground as well as develop an intensely engaging and interactive stage show. "Our music is written with a live audience in mind," says Lewis. "It's beat driven rock combined with funk, synthpop and psychedelia. We want our audience to enjoy what they hear as well as what they see on stage." Nimbleslick has hit the ground running to secure the band appearances in Nashville, Athens, Birmingham and Chattanooga with more dates to be announced soon.
