The Terry Adams Rock & Roll Quartet, Bobby Houck 

When: Fri., Jan. 21, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $15

With a handful of exceptions, like Ian McLagan and Bernie Worrell, keyboardists aren't revered as rock stars. Terry Adams is another exception: A founding member of NRBQ, Adams' playful charm and jaw-dropping virtuosity helped make them one of the country's finest bar bands. Though initially inspired by Thelonious Monk, Adams' oeuvre is nothing if not eclectic. Boogie, soul, rag, garage, rock, jazz and exotica all pass through, united by Adams' sly irreverence, genre-splicing inventiveness and energetic, foot-tapping melodies. He released Crazy 8s with his new Rock & Roll Quartet last summer. A new album's due this year, Adams' seventh since NRBQ's breakup. —Chris Parker
