Known in Western North Carolina as a top Soul band, the Secret B-Sides produce “solid gold baby making music” for the world.

With the release of albums like Welcome to Soul CityEasy MagicFlowers & Chocolate, and Live on the Mothership (not to mention, lost EPisodes) the Secret B-Sides consistently provide lush musical escape pods for folks who appreciate sonic exploration through vast regions of space-time.  B-Sides albums also feature sincerely sexy slow-jams, thoughtful brass and woodwind arrangements, as well as articulated rap verses from some of the region’s best eMCees:  Agent 23 (AKA Secret Agent 23 Skidoo), Preach Jacobs, Chach (AKA Chachillie), and Red!nk.

Whether performing live as a quartet, or accompanied by any number of collaborators, this band is on the planet to help Earth people get together for funky good times.  And, despite rumors to the contrary, the Secret B-Sides are still all about flying saucers, dinosaurs, and love.

Since conception, the Secret B-Sides have opened in direct support for Lee Fields & the Expressions, Soulive, +he Foreign Exchange, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Talib Kweli, Dead Prez, Dwele, and many more, including a very special performance as the backing band for Gift of Gab, from Blackalicious.
