NRBQ

November 18 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

NRBQ makes a stop in Norwalk this November!

Make it dinner and a show with our event’s Featured Restaurant Partners, BanC House and BJ Ryan’s! Get 10% off when you show your tickets on the day of the show. Reservations are recommended.

NRBQ is Terry Adams, Scott Ligon, Casey McDonough, and John Perrin. “NRBQ”, which stands for New Rhythm and Blues Quartet, has often been called a national treasure, which may be why the band’s music has attracted legions of devoted fans worldwide, including Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Costello, Penn & Teller, Doc Pomus, R.E.M., SpongeBob SquarePants, Michael J. Pollard, Ian McLagan, Steve Earle, Drew Carey, and Nick Lowe, among many others. NRBQ songs have inspired cover versions by Bonnie Raitt, Los Lobos, Darlene Love, Dave Edmunds, She & Him, Widespread Panic, Yo La Tengo, and more.

The group served as the unofficial “house band” for The Simpsons for Seasons 10-12. They appeared as zombies in George Romero’s movie Day of the Dead. They have appeared at the Berlin Jazz Festival, the Grand Ole Opry, and Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival. In their 50+ year career, NRBQ has released almost as many albums, including a series of critically acclaimed titles in the past decade, among them Keep This Love Goin’ (2011), Brass Tacks (2014), and the 5-disc, 50-year retrospective, High Noon (2016). Of the brand-new studio album Dragnet, released at the end of 2021, Bill Bentley in Americana Highways says, “They play with such startling and powerful simplicity, a style that must be earned and not learned,” while Uncut says, “ as though the history of 20th-century popular and unpopular music has gone through thorough, playful distillation.”

Absolutely no refunds unless the performance is permanently canceled.

For this performance, proof of vaccination or a negative PCR COVID test will not be required for entry into the venue. Face masks are not required, but they are recommended to be worn in the theater. This policy is subject to change. Please check individual shows as our policies may change depending on additional mandates from the artist’s touring manager. If you are experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms, please stay home. We welcome you to join us again in the future.
