3. Guitarist Dirk Quinn has a habit of getting funked up with his namesake, Philly-based band.
The high-energy funk/jazz band is enticing to a wide range of listeners, from jazz snobs to fans of jam bands.
Hearing classic rock as a teen became the gateway to Quinn becoming attracted to the guitar. His appetite for peculiar music led him down a musical rabbit hole that had him jamming to Mahavishnu Orchestra and Primus.
Quinn and his band will serve up their home-cooked jams at Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats, 320 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach from 10 to 11:30 p.m., Friday. COST Free. INFO dogfish.com or 226-2739.
