[BARROOM BOOGIE] 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. This show is presented by SpokesBuzz, a "grassroots nonprofit" designed to "generate buzz" for the music scene of Ft. Collins, Colorado, by linking up with other thriving music towns. Their rep at this gig is Musketeer Gripweed, an "American Revival Stomp Shake Ass Holla" band.
