“One of the world’s greatest bands … an American treasure.”– Entertainment Weekly

NRBQ is Terry Adams, Scott Ligon, Casey McDonough, and John Perrin. “NRBQ”, which standsfor New Rhythm and Blues Quartet, has often been called a national treasure, which may bewhy the band’s music has attracted legions of devoted fans worldwide, including Jimi Hendrix,Elvis Costello, Penn & Teller, Doc Pomus, R.E.M., SpongeBob SquarePants, Michael J. Pollard,Ian McLagan, Steve Earle, Drew Carey, and Nick Lowe, among many others. NRBQ songs haveinspired cover versions by Bonnie Raitt, Los Lobos, Darlene Love, Dave Edmunds, She & Him,Widespread Panic, Yo La Tengo, and more.

The group served as the unofficial “house band” for The Simpsons for Seasons 10-12. Theyappeared as zombies in George Romero’s movie Day of the Dead. They have appeared at theBerlin Jazz Festival, the Grand Ole Opry, and Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival. In their 50+ yearcareer, NRBQ has released almost as many albums, including a series of critically acclaimedtitles in the past decade, among them Keep This Love Goin’ (2011), Brass Tacks (2014), and the5-disc, 50-year retrospective, High Noon (2016). Of the brand-new studio album Dragnet,released at the end of 2021, Bill Bentley in Americana Highways says, “They play with suchstartling and powerful simplicity, a style that must be earned and not learned,” while Uncutsays, “[it’s] as though the history of 20th-century popular and unpopular music has gonethrough thorough, playful distillation.
