The 2011 Summer Breeze concert series continues with local favorites The Damn Quails performing Sunday, June 26, in Norman’s Lions Park beginning at 7:30 pm.
The Damn Quails are Oklahoma singer/songwriters Gabriel Marshall and Bryon White, who perform in many different scenarios with an often-rotating cast of some of the finest players that Norman and Oklahoma City have to offer. Joining White and Marshall for the Summer Breeze performance will be Thomas Young on drums, Luke Mullenix on bass, Steve Baker on alto and baritone saxophones, Cajon, Hawaiian lap, Jon Knudson on fiddle, keyboards, mandolin, and lap steel, Adam Rittenberry on harmonica, plus a few special guests.
The Damn Quails' music reflects a multitude of styles and genres that are broadly diverse yet strikingly cohesive. The duo’s original songs and distinctive interpretations of selected covers are vibrant with expressive vocals, perfectly blended harmonies, and dynamic electric and acoustic guitars. Their music dances around rhythm without stepping on toes and contains more diverse instrumentation than you'll likely see anywhere else. Music samples and videos are available on The Damn Quails Facebook page. Their first studio album for Squandered Records is currently in production and slated for release in August of 2011.
