[BAR CHORDS] When the Quick & Easy Boys emerged on the Portland music scene a few years back, the trio described itself as some kind of hydra-headed beast fusing Funkadelic, the Minutemen, Jimi Hendrix, the Police and My Morning Jacket, suggesting this was either the greatest band of all-time or an epic mess. Turns out, the group is mostly just an amiable bar band, playing solid, party-ready jams that hint at its professed blues, funk and country influences vaguely enough that it all blends into a beer-spilling, dance-floor-filling melange, with just enough quirk to keep things interesting. It's fun and boozy and blue-collar, and expect more of it from album No. 3, Make It Easy.
