Make no bones about it – The Q are about making new music and writing songs the good old fashioned way. However we know that to get out there and play to live audiences means that we need to play songs that people are familiar with. We’re in the entertainment business and when people go out to their local venue to see us most of the time they want to hear the songs they associate with a mod band.
This gives us the ultimate flexibility (playing both originals and covers); and venues the best of both worlds!
As a band we’ve agreed not to take any personal payments for playing gigs. All the money we earn as a band goes into funding the writing, recording and producing our original NEW music. We wouldn’t have been able to release any of the records we have released without playing gigs. All our recorded releases have been funded in this way.
So – if you’re a venue and you’d like to book us this is what you’ll get in return:
2 sets of cracking mod songs from bands and artists such as:
The Who, The Jam, Purple Hearts, Secret Affair, Small Faces
The Kinks, Sam and Dave, Wilson Pickett, Martha Reeves and The Vandellas
We all grew up listening to these bands and artists and loving their music! We’re not copyists, we always play covers The Q way – with all the raw power pop energy that you’d expect. We generally sprinkle in a couple of our own tunes too…
UNLESS YOU’D LIKE US TO PLAY A FULL ON ORIGINALS SET OF COURSE…
Here’s a sample video of us doing our thing:

Great to get together with the lads last night, we’re well on the way to writing the follow up to The Nations Recreation! We’ve written at least 4 new songs (and have plenty more in the pipeline) that have come together over the last month or two and will probably get an outing at gigs […]
