Quinn DeVeaux and The Blue Beat Review is the dance floor between the sweet old times and new hard times. It’s New Orleans soul and early blues with the depth of cracked hands combined with the contagious dance rhythm you’ve been looking for all night. You hear the upright bass and drums lock into a rolled drop beat, then the piano licks up and around the groove, then a drip dried guitar jumps in followed by three lovely voices making harmonies round the rhythm, and then on top comes Quinn, with his sugarbush tones of joy.
This band is dance music for when you’re feeling wrong and you wanna feel right. This band is dance music for when you’re feeling right and you wanna feel so fine. This band will make you clutch your heart. This band will make you move your feet. This band is the new blue beat.
