Thick Business became a band spring of 2014 in Boise, Idaho. The band has been writing, recording, and touring since then. They have been the supporting act for groups such as Of Montreal, The Entrance Band, Stardeth and White Dwarfs, and Radiation City, and are playing a showcase with Naytronix and Thundercat during Treefort Music Fest 2016. They recently collaborated with Boise choreographer Daniel Ojeda for Ballet Idaho to create a thirty minute ballet inspired by and conceptualized around three of Thick Business's tracks, Super Heavy Mom Vibes, On the Wire, and Shake That (Mood). It was based around the idea that, in 1975, a group of friends finds out they have thirty minutes to live. Thick Business played live accompaniment for the dancers with added string players (arrangements by Jeremy Stewart) for five performances. The show sold out every night and was very well received; Thick Business and Ballet Idaho will be performing the piece again opening night of Treefort Music Fest 2016.
" Thick Business borders on the epic while still being a damn good time."
"...Thick Business has already impressed Treefort (Music Fest) director and co-founder Eric Gilbert. "I always refer to them as 'future classic rock,' Gilbert says. "They're so good."
"Band soul mates are real. Mine is Thick Business... Their tunes made me sweat; That shit was genuinely electrifying. Wicked transitions... Do yourself a favor and throw 'Super Heavy Mom Vibes' on your stereo / jammypack.... [Thick Business] showed me all the colors of the rainbow."
"The tail end of Thick Business was a wall of chugging, screeching noise spiked with blow-you-over vocals... We're disappointed we missed the bulk of the set, and if you weren't there, you should be too."
"Thick Business mixes psych folk, chamber pop and the avant-garde, and there's little quite like it going."
