Smokestack Lightnin' Home Page -- The Blues Profile Page
In just a few years the Terry Quiett Band has become a mainstay across America's Heartland. From 6th Street in Austin...to the windy city of Chicago...through the mountains of Colorado...across the deserts of Arizona...jamming down on Beale Street in Memphis...wherever they go the TQB has won over young and old with their energetic and soulful sound.
Along the way they have forged a relationship with a 13-time Grammy-winning producer by the name of Jim Gaines. Jim is a veteran of the blues industry revered for his work with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Santana, Steve Miller, George Thorogood, Luther Allison, Albert Collins and many more.
Jim and Terry first teamed up on the 2011 release "Just My Luck" (on Lucky Bag Records) taking the Terry Quiett Band sound to an entirely new level. By the end of 2011 it was listed as one of the top 100 played CD's on the Roots Music Report Blues Chart for the year. They joined forces again in the spring of 2012 to record a live CD which was released on July 31, 2012. "A Night at the Orpheum" is getting fantastic reviews from the blues world.
During this time, the Terry Quiett Band has shared the stage with legends including Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, B.B. King, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Johnny Winter, Walter Trout, Robin Trower, Tab Benoit, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Bernard Allison, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, .38 Special and Los Lonely Boys.
