The legendary NRBQ—founder & driving force Terry Adams on keyboards & vocals, Scott Ligon on guitar & vocals, Casey McDonough on bass & vocals, and Conrad Choucroun on drums—released their latest studio album, the critically-acclaimed Brass Tacks, on June 17. "Brass Tacks is as accomplished and as spirited an album as the band has ever made,” says the Los Angeles Daily News." "Brass Tacks contains the fun, zest, humor and flat-out rock that has defined the band since their birth decades ago," says Rolling Stone in their online review, and, adds Magnet, "...hats off to the NRBQ dynasty".
The one and only Q hit the road this summer: ("...the band is as tight and passionate as it has ever been. It's still making music that is as impossibly infectious as ever," said the Cleveland Scene of a recent show). If you missed them, here's another chance to see NRBQ live. What to expect besides the unexpected?

"Honest about inspiration wherever it is found, fearless, searching for possibilities, taking chances." —Daily Hampshire Gazette.
"Inventing music right before our ears." —Blurt
