JIM QUICK/Down South: Whether it’s Gary P. Nunn, Zac Brown, Pat Green or whoever, us northern boys just don’t get how the south has got such strong regional scenes that players we’ve never heard of can have such strong followings and sound so fully arrived when we first get a taste of them. Quick is part of this succession. Kicking it off with some raucous road house rock, Quick shows us how and why he’s playing 300 night a year. With a lineage you can trace through Delbert McClinton to now, Quick is a party animal that loves to be the center of attention repaying it by not letting you down. Killer stuff anyone looking for a good time needs to hear. Check it out.
