You know the band, you know the songs and we all know it’ll be party time when NRBQ appears on our stage - hot on the heels of the just-released Happy Talk EP.
You might think that after 50 years, a band would want to settle down and just relax. If you do, you don’t know the Q!
“NRBQ remains impressively vibrant and cheerfully committed, and indeed embody the idea that rock 'n' roll can be a fountain of youth.” —New London Day
In 2016, NRBQ’s 5-disc, 50-year retrospective High Noon landed on Top Picks lists in Rolling Stone, the New York Times, Goldmine, and more.
Fifty years of celebrating is worth celebrating!
Come celebrate with us.
“They are an unstoppable phenomenon, and have been so longer than most any other band on the planet.” – Dave DiMartino, 2004
“If you don’t like NRBQ, I don’t want to be around you” – Penn Jillette
“If there was a “lost groove” akin to the mythical lost chord, one in such perfect harmony with the universe that it conveys instant enlightenment upon anyone who hears it, NRBQ would be the best bet to find it… Time after time the veteran quartet-crafts pop masterpieces of such enticing rhythm and infectious melody that they seem to have a special pipeline to the heart of the musical cosmos.” — Randy Lewis
“NRBQ’s sense of humour is intact and that’s important” — Sun Ra
“This music will become your friend and speak up for you when you most need it.” — Terry Adams
“NRBQ’s zest and musicianship are incomparable and incomprehensible” –Ted Nelson
“They’re OK!” — Thelonious Monk
“… Scott and Casey are “unfit to deliver pizza” — Kelly Hogan
