After more than 20 studio albums, more than a dozen live albums and numerous compilations, not to mention countless, and legendary, live performances around the world, NRBQ released a new studio album, Brass Tacks, in 2014. Recorded with Terry Adams on keyboards and vocals, Scott Ligon on guitar and vocals, Conrad Choucroun on drums (Ligon and Choucroun have been playing with Adams for seven years) and Casey McDonough (who joined the Q in 2012) on bass and vocals, Brass Tacks is brimming with swinging rhythms, sweet vocals, and sparkling sound. The dozen new tunes, served up in the unique Q mix of pop, rock, jazz, country, and more -- "It's just NRBQ music," says Adams. Credits: Terry Adams (piano, clavinet, harmonica ['I'd Like to Know'], vocals); Scott Ligon (guitar, banjo, vocals); Casey McDonough (bass, vocals); Conrad Choucroun (drums with Joe Camarillo, drums ['Greetings from Delaware' & 'I'm Not Here']); Jimmy Gordon (harmonica, ['This Flat Tire']). Brass Tacks was recorded and mixed by Norm DeMoura at Harmonium Studio. On tour, Conrad Choucroun is occasionally replaced by Bobby Lloyd Hicks on drums (The Skeletons, Dave Alvin, Jonathan Richman, Steve Forbert).
