The Chocolate Church Arts Center, at 804 Washington Street in Bath, will present a performance by classic rock band NRBQ at 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 10.

NRBQ (originally short for New Rhythm and Blues Quartet) formed in the mid 1960s, and released their self-titled debut album in 1969. For more than five decades since, the band has fused rock, R&B, rockabilly, jazz, and more into a unique sound adored by thousands of fans across the world.

Led by co-founder Terry Adams, the band has released 23 studio albums featuring songs like “Magnet” and “Ridin’ in My Car”. The current NRBQ lineup has been intact since 2015 and includes Adams, guitarist Scott Ligon, bassist Casey McDonough and drummer John Perrin.

NRBQ has attracted accolades from talent as diverse as Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello, Keith Richards, and The Replacements. Their songs have been performed by Bonnie Raitt (with whom the band just finished a tour), She & Him, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, and many others.

Tickets cost $35 in advance, or $40 day of show.
