Quiet Corral

The Stiefel Theatre,  Salina, KS

QUIET CORRAL . . .Lawrence, KS.  This group opened for Lukas Nelson although they were not originally part of the show on Wednesday night.  Their management company called and said they were going to be on the bill.  The Stiefel Theatre complied and you have an opening act.

This group definitely stands on its own.  They are terrific.  If you like the Beach Boys, you'll love Quiet Corral.  During an interview before the concert, when their sound was compared to that of the Beach Boys, they said that they took that as the highest compliment.

I got to sit in on their sound check and it was an amazing thirty minutes.  I loved every song and was looking forward to their concert.  I was totally unprepared for the actual show.  They performed a four-part drum solo on stage that blew me away.  Needless to say, it drew a standing ovation.  Unfortunately, that was also the end of their portion of the show.  

I would love to see a full concert with Quiet Corral.  This group is going places . . .  fast.  They are professional, their songs are all original and unique, and their stage performance is amazing.
