    THE QUO AKA THE FOUR ROSSI'S

    are three musicians from Birmingham and a bass player from Stourbridge who found they all share a common interest in their love for

    the music of Status Quo. 

    The band members do not take themselves very seriously, (hence why they all dress

    up as Francis Rossi…!) However, they are passionate when it comes to reproducing the

    songs and trying to authentically capture the sound, energy, and vibe of a 70’s Status

    Quo concert*.

    Mixing the rough with the smooth, a four piece Rock band that will lull you into a false sense of security with a bit of acoustic Coldplay, Stereophonics and Paul Weller before hitting you hard in the face with ZZ Top, AC/DC and everyone's favorite Motorhead classic.


    If Classic rock isn't your thing, Indie is also on the menu in the form of Arctic Monkeys, Oasis and Blur to name but a few....

    They also cater for the more mature audience who can sing along to the likes of Chris Isaac, The Kinks, The Cure, Beastie Boys or maybe even Billy Idol..

    Favourites like Sexy and I know it, summer of 69 and Sex on Fire are all part of the package...  probably shouldn't include Gay Bar within these songs.

    THE REFLECTIONS

    The Reflections were founded in 1995 by long-standing members Andy Ford & Jon Green . The current line-up have been playing together since 2010. We play a huge ...range of covers from the 60's right up to today. Our aim is to play covers that other bands don't normally do, but also include 'THE' classics. The band appears at many local pubs around the Worcestershire area, as well as performing for private parties and weddings. In 2016 we welcomed new member Darren Sheppard adding a further vocal & lead guitar.
