Hailing from Portland, OR and featuring the songs, voice and guitar of Tucson expat Dennis Mitchell (Brementown Musicians, Dennis Mitchell and the Wilsons), the Quags are quite simply a good old fashioned 4 piece rock band.
Dennis is joined by Andy Ricker on bass (44 Long, Vehicle, J Hell, Nancy Hess Band, Moxy Love Crux), Jon Beyer on drums (Mission 5, Pacific Wonderland), and Jim Talstra on guitar (The Maroons, Pete Krebs and the Gossamer Wings, Dharma Bums, No. 2, Minus 5) all veterans of the diverse Portland music scene who have found common ground in Dennis? songs.
Mining influences like the Kinks, Buzzcocks, Big Star, Small Faces, Curtis Mayfield, and The Jam, the Quags turn out the type of smart, fun, hooky and rocking tunes that back in the day were trotted out to the masses under the moniker ?powerpop?. Though looking to the past for inspiration, the Quags are firmly grounded in the present, equally at home in front of a crowd of young indie popsters or old school rockers.
