Dust off those platforms, de-crease the flares from the bottom of the wardrobe and make this a date to remember!

Lead singer Alan Crook has a strong connection with Quo, being a friend of the band and writing the track ‘Any Way You Like It’ with Andy Bown and John ‘Rhino’ Edwards on the the successful ‘Quid Pro Quo’ album.

The bands two guitarists and singers Hagen “Francis” and Marcel “Rick” are far too young to have consciously experienced the golden times of Status Quo. But they absorbed the band’s rock ‘n’ roll.

Bassist Marius “Alan”, who can also take over the singing part of the original bassist Alan Lancaster.

Drummer Thomas “John”, who listened to Status Quo on the old transistor radio as a child, brings together the explosive mixture they create.

“Frantic Quo” are from Germany and bring Status Quo’s rock’n roll to the stage in its purest and most original form in their UK debut at QuoVention.

Frantic Quo are: Hagen, Marcel, Marius and Thomas
