Terry Adams, visionary, driving force, and ‘untamed genius of the keyboards’ for NRBQ since the band’s inception over four decades ago, is one of music’s true originals. Adams reignited the legendary Quartet with the addition of Scott Ligon on guitar & vocals, Pete Donnelly on bass & vocals, and Conrad Choucroun on drums. The 2011 NRBQ studio album, Keep This Love Goin’ and the brand new CD We Travel the Spaceways shows the NRBQ magic – great musicianship, emotion, fearlessness, and fun ‘ is intact. ‘Ability to groove like no other band on the planet,’ says popmatters.com. ‘Fans will find spontaneity, humor, breadth, and musical know-how” says No Depression. ‘Music no one can make anymore.’ says the Detroit Metro-Times. And live? ”the current incarnation lived up to the legacy. They reclaimed not only the vast NRBQ catalog of songs and loose-as-a-goose sound, but also the band’s wildly unpredictable spirit on stage. Their willingness to step way out on a limb has always been one of NRBQ’s most endearing qualities, and in the contemporary world of pre-packaged, cookie-cutter pop stars, it’s sure great to have them back.’ -Albany Times-Union.
