If you haven’t yet fallen in love with The 9s, then you’re about to.
An energetic funk/rock quartet that came out of Omaha, Nebraska’s vibrant music scene, The 9s have been impressing audiences with their undeniably infectious sound and memorable live shows for nearly two decades.
Drawing from influences like Prince and Steely Dan, The 9s seamlessly combine elements of pop, funk and soul to create music that is equal parts passion and precision.
With his silky smooth voice and seductive guitar playing, front man, Jason Birnstihl, is backed by Mitch Towne on keyboards, Craig Balderston on bass and Dan Maca on drums. Together, they play in perfect accord, delivering irresistible songs and an unparalleled live experience. Each performance is different from the last, showcasing every band member’s virtuosic talent with soulful vocals, tight grooves, intricate jams and funkified solos.
Since their inception, The 9s have amassed a remarkably loyal and ever-growing fan base. They’ve released four full-length albums, all highlighted by captivating riffs and sing-in-the-shower lyrics. They’ve put their stamp on the Omaha Entertainment Awards and shared the stage with the likes of Parliament Funkadelic, Maceo Parker, Ziggy Marley and Bela Fleck. Once heralded as “the future of music” by Alan Gorrie of Average White Band, The 9s continue to hone their craft, while garnering droves of enthusiastic new followers.
