Birmingham's Downright signs with Nimbleslick Entertainment

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. 

Nimbleslick Welcomes Tropidelic

Tropidelic formed along the banks of the Cuyahoga River in murky, Kent, Ohio. Fusing energetic funk, reggae and hip-hop, the group built a local following distributing over 10,000 free copies of their first EP, “Rebirth of The Dope” on campuses and street corners throughout the midwest. After relocating to nearby Cleveland, the group bolstered themselves as a staple in the region through constant touring as well as supporting acts like Slightly Stoopid, 311, Pepper, The Dirty Heads, Sublime with Rome, Soja, The Wailers, & many more. In addition to appearances at Warped Tour and Bamboozle Festival (50,000+ attendees), their EP, “Erie Vibes & Irie Tides” received regular radio airplay on area stations in 2011. Tropidelic continued to develop their sound and unflagging live show with the addition of a three piece horn section and percussion. In 2014, the group was shut down by police during a SXSW street performance and was published by national media outlets when their rehearsal space was haphazardly raided by police later that year while executing a warrant for a previous tenant. The group sold out the renown, Grog Shop, in Cleveland, OH on December 31, 2014 and toured the southeast with big-drawing, Badfish (Sublime Tribute) in Spring 2015. Their latest release, “Police State” features cameo appearances by East Coast Reggae friends, Sun-Dried Vibes and Bumpin' Uglies. Tropidelic continues to bring their funky reggae circus across the US in their full size school bus conversion!
