Who We Are
The Quick & Easy Boys are a power-trio out of Portland, Oregon who creates their own blend of rock and roll. Imagine the Minutemen, the Police, and Band of Gypsies rolled into one.
Formed in 2005, The Quick & Easy Boys quickly made a name for themselves in Eugene, Oregon before relocating to Portland and becoming a renown nationally touring act. Their shows are an interactive party with electrifying stage antics and profound musical moments as the trio pours out every ounce of their energy, leaving nothing behind. The band has gained the reputation for moving a crowd all-night long whether it be a big festival or a tiny watering hole. The core members – – Sean Badders on vocals and bass, Jimmy Russell on vocals and guitar, and Casey Anderson on drums and vocals – – have continued to evolve musically…and audiences continue their enthusiastic calling of “Yeah Bud!” at every show.
Fresh into 2015, the Boys have released their 4th album – Follow Us Overboard – this time with renown producer Steve Berlin (Los Lobos, Deer Tick, Jackie Greene, etc.) at Modest Mouse mastermind Isaac Brock’s personal studio. Other recent accolades include being selected as main support for the legendary Funky Meters at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver, CO, as well as acting as backing band for folk troubadour Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul and Mary). Over the years they’ve also opened both locally and nationally for Deer Tick, The Meat Puppets, Blitzen Trapper, The Thermals, J. Roddy Walston and the Buisness, Orgone, Monophonics, The Pimps of Joytime, Juno What?!, Southern Culture on the Skids, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, The Bridge, Vince Herman, and more.
