Sure, I remember The Bis-Quits...

...But only from that one self-titled album they put out in 1993, on John Prine's Oh Boy label. It was another exciting discovery from my early days deejaying at that college radio station.

They put me in mind of other perfectly rocking bar bands, like NRBQ, The Beat Farmers, and maybe even The Faces on occasion...

Will Kimbrough formed the band with fellow guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Tommy Womack. Mike Grimes was on bass, and Tommy Meyer played drums.
Based out of Nashville, The Bis-Quits existed as a band just for a couple years back in the '90's, before members would head off to session work and solo albums.

You can take a look at Will Kimbrough's website for further info and his current whereabouts.

I was lucky enough to live in Nashville when this album came out. Otherwise, it's doubtful I would have ever heard of it. Excellent stuff!
