NRBQ

Event Date: 
Thursday, January 10, 2013 - 7:30pm

THE Q ARE BACK! Terry Adams, visionary, driving force and "untamed genius of the keyboards" for NRBQ since the band's inception over four decades ago, is one of music’s true originals. Adams reignited the legendary Quartet with the addition of Scott Ligon on guitar & vocals, Conrad Choucroun on drums, and newest band member Casey McDonough on bass & vocals

The 2011 NRBQ studio album, Keep This Love Goin’ and the new live CD We Travel the Spaceways show the NRBQ magic - great musicianship, emotion, fearlessness, and fun – is intact. “Ability to groove like no other band on the planet,” says popmatters.com. “Fans will find spontaneity, humor, breadth, and musical know-how…” says No Depression. “Music no one can make anymore.” says the Detroit Metro-Times..

And live? “…the current incarnation lived up to the legacy. They reclaimed not only the vast NRBQ catalog of songs and loose-as-a-goose sound, but also the band’s wildly unpredictable spirit on stage. Their willingness to step way out on a limb has always been one of NRBQ’s most endearing qualities, and in the contemporary world of pre-packaged, cookie-cutter pop stars, it’s sure great to have them back,” said the Albany Times-Union.

Open: The Billy Parker Project - Johnny Girouard & The Billy Parker Project will open their 4th show with NRBQ and their first with the new NRBQ. Long time local favorites, they offer up Americana roots rock n roll and originals. Always fun and sometimes rowdy, they are the perfect warmup for the Q. You never know what style they'll be into, be it rockabilly, bluegrass, country or good ol' rock n roll, they play it all with heart and soul
