NRBQ

You know the band, you know the songs and we all know it’ll be unforgettable when NRBQ comes to The Back Room!
You might think that after 50 years a band would want to settle down and just relax. If you do, you don’t know the Q!

NRBQ (New Rhythm & Blues Quartet) 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. And they’ve released a series of critically-acclaimed albums over the past six decades, including a 50-year retrospective and a new live album, ‘Turn On, Tune In’. Of this particular recording, longtime WFMU DJ Bob Brainen says, “Variety, familiarity, that seemingly left field choice, they’re all here. Long live the good ship NRBQ and all who sail with her!”

“For more than 50 years, they have conjured a slippery blend of early R&B, hardcore country, novelty songs and rockabilly by seizing the improvisational energy of jazz.” – Washington Post

“Absolutely no one on God’s green earth plays music like NRBQ … No one.” – Elmore Magazine

AVOID TICKET FRAUD

AVOID FRAUDULENT TICKETS!

ONLY BUY FROM OFFICIAL SOURCES:

There are several ticket resellers and secondary markets selling tickets to our events. Ticket resellers often try to mimic our website to appear legitimate. However, the ONLY official website for The Pabst Theater Group venues is www.pabsttheater.org. Please note: we set up occasional offers through sites including, but not limited to: Groupon, Goldstar, official artist websites and their official fan clubs. If you have any questions regarding the legitimacy of a secondary outlet selling tickets to our shows, please call our box office directly at 414-286-3205.

If you are interested in an event that has already sold out, please sign up to become an eMember and follow us on social media – we will announce any releases through those channels. Do not buy from a third party or ticket scalping company.

Purchasing tickets from any other seller or website runs a very high risk of receiving fraudulent and/or invalid tickets.
