"A group of cats who want to make your booty shake," Reliably Bad is a neo-jazz funk soul-pop group that originated in Greensboro, North Carolina. Here's their lineup (in no particular order): Chris Sisco on Trumpet, Charlie Sothcott on Trombone, Jimmy Washington on Guitar, Colin Moser on Keys, Matt Laird on Bass, Zac Covington on Drums, Jess Schneider on Vocals, and Chris Peebles on Sax. The group of eight have made their mark as another upcoming powerhouse band that wishes to bring back 60s-70s music.
Reliably Bad has three singles and a cover released to date. Their first single, "Really?," features the band in a live set recording where the group plays in what looks like the main floor of a house. Recording their debut cut in this manner is definitely risky, but it paid off incredibly. The band is shown off in a homestyle light, with the band's faces of devotion and Jess' jumping spirit. The live recording finishes with a lovely message for those that powered the production of the track, including "Mom and Dad" as moral support and "Cookies." Viewers are given exactly what Reliably Bad wants them to see: Authenticity.
