NRBQ with The Nighthawks
NRBQ performing "Magnet"
- What NRBQ stands for: New Rhythm and Blues Quartet
- Possibly coincidental alternate meaning: the letters correspond to the four New York City subway lines that answer the question, "How do you get to Carnegie Hall?"
- How long they've been performing their spontaneous live shows and chipping away at the concept of musical genre: since 1967
- Unexpected places you've heard their songs: in Day of the Dead and many episodes of The Simpsons
- What you might hear at the show: nobody knows; NRBQ doesn't believe in set lists
- What fans will find at the show, according to No Depression magazine: "spontaneity, humor, breadth, and musical know-how"
- "Captain Lou" Albano's favorite NRBQ song: "Captain Lou"— the infectious theme song NRBQ penned in honor of the pro wrestler
- Other famous fans: Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, and Keith Richards
- Musical styles stewed by The Nighthawks since the early '70s: blues, R&B, honky-tonk country, doo-wop, gospel, and rockabilly
- The Nighthawks tune that tells you exactly what you're gonna have: "Damn Good Time," or, if you catch the flue, "High Temperature"
Paramount Hudson Valley
"A Paramount All-Talking Picture" starring Maurice Chevalier and Claudette Colbert drew great public fanfare when the Paramount Hudson Valley debuted in 1930. Then known as the Peekskill Paramount Theater, and owned by a subsidiary of mega-studio Paramount Pictures, the Westchester County Landmark stifled Great Depression and World War II woes as a grand movie house for decades. After shopping malls and TV thwarted its status as a movie house in the '70s, the palace recently reemerged as the Paramount Hudson Valley and now attracts top-name live performers. Lovingly renovated to its original 1930's sheen, the theater sports new carpet, refurbished vintage theater seats, hand painted ceiling canvas, and opera boxes.
