The Quick and Easy Boys
The Quick & Easy Boys, a power-trio out of Portland, Oregon, create their own blend of funky R&B, psychedelic rock, and garage pop with a slight pinch of honky-tonk. Imagine the Minutemen, My Morning Jacket and Funkadelic rolled into one.
Formed in 2005, The Quick & Easy Boys quickly made a name for themselves in Eugene, Oregon before heading north and building a Portland, OR fanbase. Their shows are an interactive party with electrifying stage antics and profound musical moments as 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. The core members – - Jimmy Russell on guitar, Sean Badders on bass, and Michael Goetz on drums – - have continued to evolve musically…and audiences continue their enthusiastic calling of “Yeah Bud!” at every show.
In 2008, they released Bad Decisions With Good People which left people raving about their unique and vibrant sound, and in September of 2009, they sojourned out on their first United States tour. Two more national tours followed the release of their 2nd album Red Light Rabbit in 2010. They’ve opened both locally and nationally for Deer Tick, Blitzen Trapper. The Bridge, Iglu & Hartly, The Pimps of Joytime, Southern Culture on the Skids, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Bob Wayne & the Outlaw Carnies, Vince Herman, Scott Law and Shanti Groove.
