Greetings, from the other side of our relaxing two-month furlough!
We’ve got a very exciting show coming up that we must tell you about. On Saturday, April 12 at Seattle’s Royal Room (5000 Rainier Ave S. in Columbia City), we’ll pay tribute to our most favorite band, the New Rhythm & Blues Quartet!
We’ll be joined by a whole cast of our Q-loving friends (and some of the finest musicians in town) – including, but not limited to, members of: The Tripwires, The Jukehouse Hounds, The Souvenirs, The Mangles, The Bellow Brothers, and last but certainly not least, the mighty Young Fresh Fellows!
Rather than the standard each-band-plays-two-songs format, we’ve been working hard to polish up a number of one-night-only collaborative combos (comprising folks from all of the above) to make this night extra-special, and we’ll cover dozens of tunes spanning the NRBQ catalog…so if you love the Q (and if you don’t, what’s wrong with you?), you simply must attend.
The suggested donation is $10, and all proceeds will benefit Musicares. You can find lots of details and RSVP on Facebook.
As an added bonus, Lincoln will be appearing on KSER.fm‘s Blue Moon Lounge this Monday, March 31 at 8pm Pacific to discuss his love of NRBQ and play some tunes, solo-style. Tune in at 90.7FM in the Everett, Washington area, or stream along worldwide at kser.org!
If you’re wondering, “NRB-who?”, not to fear – we put together a handy primer course on Spotify so you can get up to speed, and/or share the Gospel of the Q with your friends!
If you prefer visual stimulation, a great deal of the NRBQ universe is encapsulated in this 7-minute YouTube clip:
See you April 12 at the Royal Room!
