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 Scott Ligon on guitar & vocals, Casey McDonough on bass & vocals, and Bobby Lloyd Hicks on drums. NRBQ will be joined by the Whole Wheat Horns at B.B. King's--Klem Klimek on tenor saxophone and Carl Q on trombone.
The 2011 studio album, Keep This Love Goin' and the 2012 live CD We Travel the Spaceways radiate the one-and-only NRBQ spirit and magic--great musicianship, emotion, fearlessness, and fun. "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? "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. Added the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, "NRBQ is still liable to play anything. Roaring rockabilly, transcendent pop-rock, roadhouse blues, avant jazz - you name it . . . The new band is a revelation, capable of playing nearly the whole NRBQ catalog, which dates back to 1966."
A new studio album is arriving in 2014!
