Dennis Mitchell of the Crack City Rockers was the impetus behind the Quags. Acting as a side project during downtime with Crack City Rockers, Mitchell enlisted the help of some fellow Portland, OR, musicians to recreate a classic rock sound and album. In 2001, the group entered the studio with a goal to pay tribute to influences ranging from the Rolling Stones and the Faces to David Bowie and the Kinks. In 2002, the Quags released its debut album, Out in the Community, on Paisley Pop Records. The group has performed around the Portland club circuit and has garnered a loyal following.
