Quint’s Revenge -Band of the week

Quint's Revenge Lexington, Richmond, Nicholasville From left to right; Matthew Valentino, comedian Billy Crank, Joey Williams, Aaron Gosper, Joel Valentino and John Renshaw.  Picture taken at Sound of Lexington studio by Carolyn Burnette. [gallery ids="2351,2353,2344,2356,2350,2352,2355,2354,2346,2347,2349,2345,2343,2342,2348"] What can I say about these really great guys besides the fact that they are all excellent and professional musicians?  A lot more than probably what the average reader would want to read.  I love each one of these guys and I know they are really special people to someone, as we all are.  They have a sound all their own.  Yes, as with all musicians we are all influenced by the music that has surrounded us all our lives, but every once in awhile you get a sound that is a little different than the rest.  That is what you hear when you listen to Quint's Revenge.  Lexington and Central Kentucky have no idea what an awesome band we have here in our neighborhood.  Guys and gals, you'd better come and see this fabulous jazzrocksongwritin'jamband while you still can!  ' Cuz when they get famous you won't be able to get in the door.  Just sayin'.  Besides being pleasing to the ears and the music heart these guys are kinda nice to look at too!   It's always great to watch them live as well!   Live at Al's Bar earlier 2016 I've probably had the most contact with Joel Valentino.  I don't know if there is an official leader of the band but in my mind it must be Joel.  The leader is the person who steps up and says, "this is the way it is," and there's little or no dispute.  To me that person is Joel.  He's smart and is a very attentive person who shows a genuine interest in what people are saying.  He plays several instruments and teachings piano.  One of my favorite songs that the band performs was written by Joel called Kentucky Woman.  It's a great song with some clever words and a catchy tune. The band played it for us live for the recording of our Barefoot KY TV podcast.  Was  real special treat! Matthew Valentino, yes they are brothers.  He plays some guitar and keys and also sings.  This family is full of musical talent as well as good brains.  Matthew seems to be the quieter of the two but his contribution to the music is nowhere near silent.  Listening to the riffs and additions he puts into the songs on the keyboard is like putting the butter on the pancakes.  Just makes it so much better and it was already good! Aaron Gosper I think was born with a guitar in his hand, or he was given one as soon as he was laid in the crib.  No, actually he told us during the interview when he started playing.  No, I won't tell you, you have to watch the interview on our Barefoot KY TV at the link below.  It's so intriguing (entertaining)  to watch Aaron's face as he moves into different expressions of the song.  Every note seems to be played out on his face.  It's great to watch and listen to a musician who really feels the music and means what he's playing. Joey Williams is another seemingly quiet member of the band.  From what I've heard he is the type of person who works to get the job done right away and done the right way.  He's got a real cool style of his own on the guitar as well as singing.
