    It was fantastic. He was in great voice and spirits and played his signature guitar work passionately throughout. He was gracious and also a commanding presence, albeit much less big physically, which I gather is a good and healthy development. The band was excellent. Really an A+ experience on all accounts.

    He came out on fire. I didn’t keep a set list but I know he went right into Little Bit of Bad for the second tune and then Riding in My Car. Highlights too many to mention, including getting to meet him briefly afterwards. Played a new tune that I fully expect to be a hit. It Came from the South, 12 Bar Blues, Get Rhythm, Comes to Me Naturally were among the other highlights, as well as a stirring cover of Etta James’s Change is Gonna Do Me Good.

    Almost two hours straight with no break. Every song felt like a gem. What an incredible and unexpected gift.
    Sounds great. Envious. Consider yourself very lucky. Al doesn't really tour, just does an occasional show near his home occasionally. When Al left the Q and touring, he quit drinking and took on a healthier lifestyle which has done him good. Would love to hear that new tune.

    • *"Change is Gonna Do Me Good" is Big Al's song; Etta James covered it.

      • NRBQ's first new album in eight years, 'Dragnet'

        Ladies and gentlemen, the story you are about to hear is true... NRBQ's first new album in eight years is about to unleashed. No names have been changed and no one is innocent. In addition to their version of the 'Dragnet' theme, the album contains 10 new, original songs, all of which were written or co-written by the band-including Terry Adams' "Sunflower," which was originally recorded for the 2018 film Change In The Air. Any release of NRBQ music is a cause for celebration, but after nearly a decade since their last full-length studio release, Dragnet brings the band back to the turntables and live venues of America. Though they don't carry a badge, they are going to work, and after more than a year away from live performances, this is where they come in. So do your part and safely celebrate the release of Dragnet when they come to your city and in the meantime, duh duh duh duh!

          I heard a song from this on Off The Record last week and it sounded OK.

          I forgot to remind Kempers, who is a shadow of his former posting self on this bored

              Kempers has gone to FB, but still occasionally graces us with his presence. I'm sure this post will bring him out.

                  I also believe that a fair amount of Kempers time is consumed by work with QAnon and of course Adult Friend Finder.

                  But getting back to the FarQ.

                  I heard another song off their new 78 this morning on Off The Record it was called You Cant Change People, and it sounded good

                    Thanks for the heads up. Just picked this up this morning. Sounds great on first listen; going for two now.

                      I haven't posted here for a while because I fear age shaming punk Pole wannabes and cyber bullying members of The Church of The Latter Day Morrison, but for the Q, I venture back to this once glorious Bored with news that the New Rhythm and Blues Quartet (though no longer new, not really rhythm and blues and frequently larger than a foursome) do indeed have not only a new studio recording and tour but spring tour dates with our beloved Bonnie Raitt. Go see this band even if it costs you your job and breaks up your family. It will be worth it. Check out nrbq,com or nrbq headquarters and the nrbq appreciation page on Facebook for those hip enough for that. Well, that's all for now.

                        Thanks for stopping by.

                        Facebook does have a Threadhead page, but then you keep getting separate Threadhead friend requests which you take to not hurt any feelings. Pretty soon it turns into a big mish mosh and without the old board names, I don't know who anyone is anyway. Stupid.

                        FB rant over.......for now.

                        NRBQ and Bonnie Raitt ? Another affront to the the Beatles legacy.

                        • Bonnie Raitt coming here next Nov 5th? I hope NRBQ will be wither but I doubt it.

                            Probably not, Her dates with the Q are all in April. Perhaps they could both do Jazz Fest. I can dream, can't I?

                              Kempers the fellow I introduced you to at the Patry a few years back that I said was a big NRBQ fan, has now played the far Q two weeks in a row on his show Off The Record, so you 2 certainly do have something in common.

                                Not that I wouldn't want to see them open for her (as she'll probably play The Saenger) but I'd really rather see them at Tip's, that new Toulouse Theatre or even better The Maple Leaf. Yeah I'm dreamin' too.
