Terry Quiett Band - Blues/Rock Band

Time: 7:30 p.m.
Price: $10 Adults, $5 with SC ID, $3 Children under 1
Since 2006 the Terry Quiett Band has logged 200,000+ miles and played over three-hundred shows across America's Heartland. From 6th Street in Austin to Beale Street in Memphis, they've mesmerized audiences with their original and contemporary blues-soaked sound. They've also paid their share of dues (and tolls) traveling the Rocky Mountains of Denver, the blue grass of Kentucky, and every state in between, winning fans and expanding their core grassroots audience with each performance.
Their self-produced 2008 CD titled "Cut the Rope" sold out and helped spread TQB's inventive blues-rock to over 300 radio stations worldwide (including tracks spun on syndicated blues shows such as: Bluesville XM, Blues Deluxe and House of Blues Blues-mobile, and being ranked on the Top 20 radio chart in Maine for three consecutive months).
But it was their 2011 album "Just My Luck" recorded with world renowned, Grammy-winning producer Jim Gaines (Stevie Ray Vaughan, Carlos Santana, Steve Miller Band, George Thorogood, Luther Allison, Albert Collins) that really raised the stakes and their profile to another level. It received glowing reviews across the globe and was in the Top 100 most played albums of 2011 on the Root Music Report Blues Chart.
Along the way the Terry Quiett Band has shared the stage with international guitar legends including B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Jonny Lang, Robert Cray, Los Lonely Boys, 38 Special, the Doobie Brothers, Edgar Winter, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Walter Trout, Robin Trower, Tab Benoit, Eric Sardinas, Albert Cummings, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Bernard Allison, Bugs Henderson, Gary Hoey, and Anthony Gomes as well as numerous talented regional artists.
