The Quick & Easy Boys are a power-trio from Portland, Oregon who create their own brand of rock ‘n’ roll mixing together honky-tonk, funk, and a DIY punk attitude. Imagine the Minutemen, Funkadelic and Willie Nelson rolled into one. Their high-energy thought-provoking original music provides a bounce to your step that can only lead to a whole lot of dancing.
Formed in 2005, The Quick & Easy Boys quickly made a name for themselves in Eugene, Oregon before moving themselves to Portland and building a fanbase there. Passing through a few incarnations and out-of-print recordings, the core members Jimmy Russell on guitar, Sean Badders on bass, and Mike Goetz on drums continue evolving musically as a band…and audiences continue their enthusiastic calling of “Yeah Bud!” at every show. Their 2008 release “Bad Decisions With Good People” has left people raving about their unique and vibrant sound.
The Quick & Easy Boys continue touring throughout the Western United States, opening for bands like The Bridge, Iglu & Hartly, The Pimps of Joytime, Bob Wayne & the Outlaw Carnies, Vince Herman, Scott Law and Shanti Groove. In 2009, they plan on touring throughout the United States and releasing a new CD in their quest to constantly re-invent “Honkadelic”.
