About Backup Planet
Backup Planet is a progressive funk rock band based out of Nashville, TN. Their sound draws from so much you’ve heard before—‘70s rock and funk, high-energy improv, a touch of pop, a sliver of metal. But the members of this group mix and match those elements—with just a hint of modern tech to burnish a sturdy nucleus of retro-minded organ and guitar—in ways that never fail to astonish.
Their influences include Warren Haynes, Lettuce, Daft Punk, The Allman Brothers, Michael Jackson, and Umphrey’s McGee. The Tennessee jam scene has been stirring as Backup Planet has played at festivals and clubs across the state.
