Quick’s been touring the Southeast US for more than 15 years, playing nearly 300 shows per year, and has released more than 11 albums including his newest, DOWN SOUTH. Originally introducing their music as the Coastline Band—a band of friends who played the Carolina beach bars day in and day out—the group pushed Quick to the forefront and naturally transformed into Jim Quick & Coastline. Known for his all-out performances and deliberate, off-the-cuff wisecracks, Jim has been a gracious recipient of the Carolina Music Awards “Entertainer Of The Year Award” – nine times.
Those who have seen Quick perform in the flesh may wonder if the funny guy sitting at the bar wears the same suit as the artist on stage. The answer is “yes.”
A smorgasbord to suit any music enthusiast’s appetite, DOWN SOUTH was produced by the one and only Gary Nicholson (of Delbert McClinton, Wynonna Judd and Pam Tillis fame to name a few). After sending Nicholson an unsolicited cryptic message through his personal web site claiming to “have some of his money,” Quick’s clever and intriguing communication captured Nicholson’s attention. Within days, Jim was on his way to Nashville to meet the acclaimed music producer and the rest is, as they say, history.
His devoted fans, the “Coastline Crazies,” know it’s hardly luck that allows Quick’s path to cross with musical greats. It’s his musical gumbo and unadulterated energy that keeps fans coming back for more. And, with the release of DOWN SOUTH and his introduction to country radio, Quick is certain to add more “Crazies” to the mix!

Hi Folks, We are POCKETFUL OF STRANGE. We like to play the REAL R&B, Funk, Soul & Rock 'n Roll from the last 40 years. Ummm...well, the band started as a complete accident back in '05. "Wads" found lead singer, Pete Hicks' phone number under a mound of stuff and a simple call was made to let him know I still remembered he existed on this planet, LOL. I suggested playing some gigs together and bring in Rob Carlisle on guitar. Well, after several acoustic shows, a bar owner suggested we get a drummer. So, we got got Jason Bone on the kit. There you have it, instant band.
The initial idea was to go out a few times a month and have some fun playing together. Interest in the band grew with support from our loyal fans and word of mouth, the band gained a lot of momentum and has now played all over the area for everything from bars, to festivals to private events and weddings. Come on out and and hear us, because it's your band, as much as it is ours. Cheers!
