Nrbq Vs. Los Straitjackets says
$20 ADV / $23 DOS

Two of the greatest live bands in America join forces to bring you the rock & roll event of 2016: Los Straitjackets vs. NRBQ. There is no Pay-Per-View, and this bout will go the distance. Attendance is mandatory, and everyone will win.

The legendary NRBQ — founder & driving force Terry Adams on keyboards & vocals, Scott Ligon on guitar & vocals, Casey McDonough on bass & vocals, and Conrad Choucroun on drums — released their latest studio album, the critically-acclaimed Brass Tacks, in the summer of 2014. “NRBQ is still liable to play anything. Roaring rockabilly, transcendent pop-rock, roadhouse blues, avant jazz – you name it.” —Minneapolis Tribune.

Los Straitjackets are the leading practitioners of the lost art of the guitar instrumental. Using the music of Ventures, The Shadows, Link Wray and Dick Dale as a jumping off point, the band has taken their unique, high energy brand of original rock & roll around the world. Clad in their trademark Lucha Libre Mexican wrestling masks, the “Jackets” have delivered their trademark guitar licks to 16 albums, thousands of concerts and dozens of films and TV shows.
