The Damn Quails started as a weekly jam session at The Deli in Norman, Oklahoma. Bryon White and Gabe Marshall had been playing music in the Oklahoma area, and melded their singing, songwriting, and guitar playing into something unique.
Soon their Monday night shows were packed with music fans. Some of the musicians who jammed with them became more and more regular and the semblance of a band was formed. Biggie showed up with his harmonica. Luke Mullenix played bass and Thomas Young became the drummer. In addition to this a multi instrumentalist named Jon Knudson came with a variety of instruments including, keyboard, resonator guitar, saxophone, and mandolin. These guys became the core of The Damn Quails.
Their record “Down the Hatch” was released on October 25th, 2011 and received rave reviews. The record spent many weeks on the National Americana Chart, and has had several top twenty singles on The Texas Music Chart including “Fool’s Gold” “So So Long”, and “Me and The Whiskey.”
Touring to support “Down The Hatch,” The Damn Quails developed a reputation for their live performances. Combining folk, country, americana, and rock ‘n’ roll, the band has a loyal following who are fully aware this is a band that is strictly in it for the music.
