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. He’s touring with the “new” New Rhythm & Blues Quartet - Scott Ligon on guitar & vocals, Pete Donnelly on bass & vocals, and Conrad Choucroun on drums - formerly known as The Terry Adams Rock & Roll Quartet.
Upon the recent release of the new NRBQ studio album, Keep This Love Goin’, Adams, who has presided over every NRBQ line-up since the late 1960’s, issued a candid statement about the long process of rebuilding his health and band after a 2004 cancer diagnosis. Good news! The NRBQ magic - great musicianship, emotion, fearlessness, and fun – is intact, onstage and on record.
“…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, live review, April 2011
