N is for “No shit? NRBQ at the Ale House?”
R is for Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, which is where NRBQ belongs.
B is for Best Damn Chicken Wings in town at the Ale House.
Q is for Quality, plain and simple…

Put them all together and they spell: NRBQ.

Led by madcap keyboard conjurer and piano pounder Terry Adams, the band romps into the Ale House in Troy on Thursday night in support of their latest album, We Travel the Spaceways, which was released on the Clang! label last year. Don’t expect the band to stick to the tunes from the new album, however.

The truth of the matter is that you never know what the ‘Q is going to serve up next, and that’s part of the band’s magic. They’ve collaborated with such diverse musicians as Carl Perkins, Captain Lou Albano, Skeeter Davis, Boozoo Chavis and John Sebastian. And their repertoire stretches from Little Richard to Sun Ra and well beyond, which is really saying something.

There’s been a recent shift in the band’s personnel, as well. Adams, drummer Conrad Choucroun and guitarist Scott Ligon will be joined by Casey McDonough, who took over for the departing Pete Donnelly back in September. The Ale House will mark the Capital Region debut of the new line-up. Plus, the ‘Q posted on their Facebook page that they’ll be joined by saxman Klem Klimek and trombonist Carl Quefurth of the Whole Wheat Horns on Thursday night, so it looks like this show could really blow the roof off the place.

NRBQ takes over the Ale House in Troy at 8pm on Thursday (April 18). Tickets are $30, but if you don’t have one yet, you’d better make your move fast.
