• The Quick & Easy Boys – Red Light Rabbit Review, 411mania.com by Aaron Mayagoitia

For a year like 2010 that has been unable to offer thrilling music constantly so far, Red Light Rabbit is a ray of hope. The Quick & Easy Boys’ sophomore effort is a highly recommendable album to a broad range of tastes…It is promising to think that this is only album #2 for the Boys because they have an attitude and approach that’s all their own that can surely yield more surprises further on up the road. By all means, seek this one out and play it loud. Your neighbors will appreciate it!

“The trio that makes up The Quick and Easy Boys knows exactly how to put it all together, and the album is like going on a psychadelic trip”

• The Everyman Band : The Quick & Easy Boys Do it All, Portland Mercury, by Aris Wales

“The band’s ability and swagger is apparent in their live performances—so much so that capturing it in the studio has proved difficult in the past. However, with their forthcoming second album, Red Light Rabbit, the Quick & Easy Boys show their true colors.”

• Quick and Easy Boys rocks out of Eugene to Portland, OREGONIAN, by Don Campbell

“The result is their stellar sophomore effort, “Red Light Rabbit,” 11 original songs redolent of great ’60s rock, the best parts of ’70s funk and their own fearless adaptation of juke-joint country (due in part to the twang of Russell’s insistent and sparky Telecaster sound).”

• Relocated bands bring it back home | Quick and Easy Boys and Just People return to Eugene with new CDs, Register-Guard, by Serena Markstrom

“The Boys’ music seems referential to the bands that shaped their aesthetic, but not overly derivative. You can tell they think for themselves…”

• Show listing – – The Quick and Easy Boys w/Point Break & Cheer Up Charlie Daniels, Nashville Scene, by Steve Haruch

“The album’s called Red Light Rabbit, and it fits in that crease between straight-up boyish rock ‘n’ roll party music (The Strokes, etc.) and a kind of punky San Pedro-style mannishness.”

• Quick & Easy Boys hit the long hard road with new CD, WVRockscene, by Max Power

“JR: Yes we do still have mustaches and they are coming in hot!”

• The Quick & Easy Boys – More To Offer Than Just Mustache Rides, Zaptown Magazine, by Cody Jones (Interview)

“Suggestive name aside, there is nothing suggestive about this trio’s ability to get the dance floor packed and moving with their brand of funky hillbilly-rock fusion.”

• The Quick & Easy Boys show preview, Willamette Week

“Maybe Bootsy Collins wasn’t listening to Farmer John when he said the Funkadelic bassman could sleep in his barn, because it appears Bootsy did have relations with John’s daughter, and out popped Portland’s The Quick & Easy Boys. Honky-tonk ain’t never been this funky, and funk ain’t never been this close to a cornfield. Riff-heavy and driven by a stoned-out beat wrested from the Mothership, The Quick & Easy Boys’ sound is a one-of-a-kind cerebral treat. Maybe this is what it sounds like when Willie Nelson puffs extra purple herb.”

• Portland Local Scene Spotlight: The Quick and Easy Boys, Jambands.com by by John Zinkand

“The Quick and Easy Boys can be counted on to consistently deliver an evening of enjoyable and danceable music and have one heck of a good time on stage while doing it! Check them out live if you’re ever in the Portland area…”

• The Quick & Easy Boys: Homecooked Honkadelic Funk, Oregon Music News by P Vaughn Shaver

“I predict that within a couple of years, the band’s rallying-cry, ‘Yeah, Bud!’ will be on bumper stickers from Beaverton to Bonnaroo and beyond.”

• Full-on Party: The happy hour funk (honky tonk and rock) of The Quick & Easy Boys, The Source Weekly by Mike Bookey

“They’ve become, in a way, the ideal band – a three piece rooted in rock and roll that wears its funk and honky tonk influences on its sleeve. Maybe this is what the Hold Steady would sound like if they came up in Oregon and not New York City.”

• 2009 PDX Pop Now! Report Day 3, Willamette Week

“Self-describing your band as a hybrid of the Minutemen, Funkadelic and Willie Nelson is a hell of a burden to place on yourself, but the three mustachioed dudes in the Quick & Easy Boys—who, in a festival full of musicians and audience members sporting ironic facial hair, were probably the only trio to rock their ’staches genuinely—brought a serious ruckus to the 2 pm outdoor stage, tearing through a set of vaguely countrified funk-punk anchored by the hyper-trebly, nimble-fingered fretwork of guitarist Jimmy Russell. A little more aggression would put these guys over the top, but there probably isn’t another band in Portland that sounds like this.”

• Quirky Portland-based trio wraps up first Eastern tour at the V Club, Herald-Dispatch by Dave Lavender

“Formed in 2005 at the University of Oregon in Eugene, the Quick & Easy Boys have been making a name for themselves up and down the West coast with their tongue-in-cheek, throwback sense of stage humor and ability ot get audiences out on the dance floor grooving to the band’s college-rocked, porno-funk.”

• In a Funk, Rockwired.com by Brian Lush

“Just when you thought that Portland’s music scene was littered with autumnal, introspective, singer-songwriter-type bands such as THE DECEMBERISTS or AMELIA, along come THE QUICK AND EASY BOYS. Just as comfortable showing off their WILLIE NELSON and JOHNNY CASH influences as they are their love for PARLIAMENT and THE FUNKADELICS, this sturdy power trio is wired to get you ass on the floor dancing.”
