“If you don’t like NRBQ, I don’t want to be around you” – Penn Jillette
You know the band, you know the songs and we all know it’ll be party time when NRBQ appears on the Avalon stage. 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!
The band’s music, a rollicking blend of everything from stomping rockabilly to Beatles-influenced pop to Thelonious Monk-inspired jazz, has attracted fans as diverse as Elvis Costello, Penn & Teller, R.E.M., Ian McLagan, She & Him, Wilco, Widespread Panic, Nick Lowe, and indie-rock band Whitney. NRBQ songs have inspired cover versions by Bonnie Raitt, Los Lobos, Darlene Love, and Dave Edmunds, among many others.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see this classic band live in the Avalon. Fifty years of celebrating is worth celebrating!
