About The Event
State of Quo is one of the longest established and most popular Status Quo Tribute Bands in Europe. Originally formed by Rhythm Guitarist and Vocalist Paul Carr in 1996, the band have played countless gigs across the UK and occasionally in Europe itself, most recently headlining the Crossed Guitars Festival in Frieschepalen, Holland.
In 2015, the band had the pleasure of appearing as support band to “Rhino’s Revenge” - a band fronted by Quo’s Bass player since 1986, John ‘Rhino’ Edwards – on a Tour to promote their second album release. It was during this series of gigs that Rhino described State of Quo as “the UK’s Premier Quo Tribute”
Other plaudits for the band have come from the likes of Jeff Rich, Quo’s drummer from 1986 to 2000, who played with State of Quo as special guest at the Rock the Lakes Music Festival in Preston in 2016. At the end of a very well received set, Jeff took to the mic to hail the band as “the nearest thing to Quo you’ll ever get – fantastic!”
Mick Wall, legendary Rock Journalist and Author, described the band as “easily the best Quo Tribute act going” after introducing State of Quo at the first International Quo Fan Club Convention in 2015, where the band once again appeared alongside Rhino’s Revenge.
A typical State of Quo setlist highlights tracks from Quo’s classic 1970s albums as well as material from more recent albums such as ‘Heavy Traffic’ and ‘Quid Pro Quo’ – plus one or two of their many hit singles – all played as faithfully as possible to Quo’s own recordings and performances.
