The Violet Nines are a vibrant outfit from Minneapolis, MN that play groove pop; alternative rhythm-centric music fused with funk, rock and R&B. Known for their multi-fronted approach (something like Lawrence but more of a Jungle or Foster the People vibe), the band connects with listeners through their electric live performances, prominent bass grooves and rousing saxophone.
“Smooth and sensual but also confident and commercial, the pitch perfect between chart territory and a more interesting, more underground roots world.”
Dave Franklin, Dancing About Architecture
After their music video of a live performance on a boat - while playing guitar and surfing simultaneously - caught circulation, The V9s were heard around the U.S. on independent and college radio. Heading into 2022, the band has several releases on the docket, accompanied by their first tour (shows in Chicago, Denver, and more) and big plans on the horizon.
Catch The Violet Nines at the 7th St Entry on Friday, February 25 for the celebration of their newest release, Baby.
