Opposite Box is: Ryan Long (vocals/keys/trombone) Richard “Dick” Long (guitar) Ryan Guza (drums) Ryan Crabtree (bass) “… the band effortlessly melds [styles]. Experimental rock, psychedelic funk and more. I really need to emphasize how natural the transitions seem in the songs. There are vocals; some good ones at that but the music itself felt like it came first most of the time.” – Dan Weston/Divide and Conquer
“Opposite Box, (who) has always been a controlled explosion on stage, still keeps that improvisational feel while adding funk and jazz to the mix.” – Dave Weinthal/Enigma
