Quick and Easy Boys with 100 Watt Mind
Live at the Talent Club
Saturday, October 27th
The Quick & Easy Boys are a power trio out of Portland, Oregon who create their own blend of rock and roll. Imagine the Minutemen, the Police, and Band of Gypsies rolled into one.
Formed in 2005, The Quick & Easy Boys quickly made a name for themselves in Eugene, Oregon. Once they relocated to Portland, they became a renowned, nationally touring act. Their shows are an interactive party with electrifying stage antics and profound musical moments. The trio pours out every ounce of their energy, leaving nothing behind. The band has gained the reputation for moving a crowd all-night long whether it be a big festival or a tiny watering hole. Founding members Sean Badders on vocals and bass & Jimmy Russell on vocals and guitar play all the notes. Tyrone Hendrix joined in 2018 on percussion. The Quick & Easy Boys have continued to evolve musically…and audiences continue their enthusiastic shout, “Yeah Bud!” at every show.
In 2015, the Boys released their 4th album – Follow Us Overboard – this time with renowned producer Steve Berlin (Los Lobos, Deer Tick, Jackie Greene, etc.) at Modest Mouse mastermind Isaac Brock’s personal studio. Other recent accolades include being selected as main support for the legendary Funky Meters at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver, CO. They acted as backing band for folk troubadour Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul and Mary). Over the years they’ve also opened both locally and nationally for Deer Tick, The Meat Puppets, Blitzen Trapper, The Thermals, J. Roddy Walston and the Buisness, Orgone, Monophonics, The Pimps of Joytime, Juno What?!, Southern Culture on the Skids, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, The Bridge, Vince Herman, and more.
