They just received word from RecordSetter that Quickie now holds the world record for the most shows performed by a band in a single day: 44! Luckily, There are only 10 venues at this weekend’s festival. They’ll be hanging out at the broadcast studio Saturday trying to stay out of trouble and rest up for the show at 11p. We’ll see how that works.

Quickie’s songs have been featured in the shows “Parenthood” NBC, “Vampire Diaries” CW and in the movies “Our Lips are Sealed” featuring the Olsen Twins , Shafted, and Repli-Kate starring Alli Landry and Eugene Levy.

YouTube Preview Image With all the feedback and traffic we’re receiving on this site and for Doug’s World, we’re coming to realize that musicians in Salem deserve a year-round resource for Cherry City Music info, links and videos. We’ll do our best to make that happen.

Meanwhile, watch part 2 of The Nettles on Doug’s World and see their cd release show tonight at Pete’s Place with opener Monoplane.
