Introducing Bearsville Uncut
Live recordings from Bearsville Theater Vault!
Launching Saturday April 11th, 8.00pm via Facebook Live
This Saturday April 11 at 8.00pm, Bearsville Theater launches Bearsville Uncut a live, unedited audio stream on Facebook Live. Iconic, previously un-broadcast Bearsville Theater performances from our vaults. First show NRBQ performance from April 2011.
NRBQ stands for New Rhythm and Blues Quartet, a rock band founded out of Kentucky by pianist Terry Adams around 1965. It has a reputation for compelling live performances with a lot of spontaneity and wit, blending rock, pop, jazz and blues. Current members are Terry Adams, Casey McDonough on bass, Scott Lignon and guitar and drummer John Perrin.
Their live Bearsville concert from 2011 features:
The One and Only
We Travel the Spaceways
Here I Am
Get a Grip
She’s Got Everything
Yes, Yes, Yes
She Knows How to Rock Me
Known as ‘The Musicians Musicians’, NRBQ have attracted fans as diverse as Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello, Keith Richards, The Replacements, John Sebastian, Dave Edmunds, Ira Kaplan and Penn & Teller. Their songs have been performed by Bonnie Raitt, Los Lobos and Dave Edmunds among others. And the group served as the unofficial “house band” for The Simpsons for the season 10-12 period in which NRBQ fan Mike Sully was head writer and executive producer. NRBQ has a following from years of live shows, performing, “a stellar and wildly unpredictable live act.” (Mark Demming) because of the lack of a set list. In addition to its own compositions, the band performs a broad range of cover material and audience requests. Automatic notification when the show goes live
We have many never-before-heard performances in our vaults. So even though we can’t physically open our doors, the music has to get out there!
At 8pm ET for each Saturday from now on a new classic performance will be released.
Stay Safe, we hope to go live again soon.
