Saturated in soul and marinated in the love of music comes The Quickening out of New Orleans, LA. With the inception of the band begining in 2012, guitarist and song writer Blake Quick has assembled a panel of musicians that have enhanced the meaning of “feel good music.” Prepare to be blown away by the luscious vocal pairings between the stunning Rachel “Mama Ray” Murray and Quick. The two have a chemistry that boils with excitement and defies the term “frontman” into one cohesive partnership. The rhythm section, coupled by Al Small on bass and Jeff Jani on drums, seem to have a marriage to the groove that Quick lays down. On keyboard, we have the multi-faceted man, Joe Bouche, who brings the band to new levels like a billow of smoke out of a wild fire. The band has already made a huge impact in the New Orleans community and are eager to spread the word like butter across the US.
(Quick·en·ing): 1: to make alive; 2: to come to life; especially: to enter into a phase of active growth and development; 3: to shine more brightly
