Q the Quo is a five-piece Status Quo tribute band, based in Northern Ireland, dedicated to bringing the musical magic and energy of the original rock legends to as many people as possible. Q the Quo is as close as you can get to the real Quo sound. Even though it’s over fifty years since they rose to fame with their first hit, Status Quo’s music is as popular as ever. Fans will never forget the powerful riffs played by the late, great Rick Parfitt, the amazing solo work of Francis Rossi and the unforgettable sing-along melodies and harmonies that have made the band a world class act over the past five decades. They’ve had more Top 40 UK singles than any other band or artist and even people who aren’t Quo fans will know more of their songs than they think. Members of Q the Quo all grew up listening to these songs and get a real kick out of playing a two-and-a-half hour tribute show in front of an always-appreciative audience.
The authentic energy reproduced by Q the Quo will have the crowd on its feet and singing out loud in no time. This is a must-see performance!
The idea to set up a Quo tribute originated back at the start of 2014 when Daniel (keyboards) and Mick (bass) started the hunt for other like-minded musicians. It wasn’t long before they were joined by Alex (rhythm guitar) and Hal (drums). Finding a front man turned out to be more difficult. Seth played with us for a while and then in the late summer of 2015 he was replaced by Michael, who played his last gig with the band in Sept 2018. He was replaced by Simon who now fills the Rossi role. In the autumn of 2016 Alex decided to drop out and another Daniel joined the fray on rhythm and lead, before briefly being replaced by Norman and then Eddy. The Parfitt role is now in the safe hands of Adam. Having been with Q the Quo from the very early days, Hal decided it was time to step away from behind the drums and since the start of 2019 Kenny has had his bum firmly on the drum throne!
