Local Music: Quiet Oaks

The history of Salt Lake City quintet Quiet Oaks is anything but quiet. Four of the band mates played together in a group that broke up after a falling-out with a frontman. Rather than call it quits, they decided to rebuild as Quiet Oaks, refining their take on classic rock into the sound they’ve always aspired to. Now on the western leg of a 42-show tour across America, Quiet Oaks joins us Wednesday to discuss their music and picking up the pieces to become the band they’ve always wanted.

Quiet Oaks, along with Steel Cranes and Andrew Goldring, are playing on Wednesday, August 24 at Kilby Court in Salt Lake City. Doors at 7 P.M. DETAILS
