ColvinQuarmby are one of those bands that everyone needs to see at least twice in their lifetime! When Gerry Colvin, Nick Quarmby, Martin Fitzgibbon, Marion Fleetwood and Al Maslen get together, it’s probably the nearest you’ll get to a legalised high. Exit doors at ColvinQuarmby gigs are invariably filled by happy gig-goers resplendent with stupid grins on their faces which tend to remain there for days as that heady high gradually wears off.
Be warned – see ColvinQuarmby once, and you’ll be hooked!
“This band is unique and unforgettable. The songs are brilliant. They should be a household name. Go see them!” (Phil Beer)
“ColvinQuarmby have brought a breath of fresh air to the festival scene. They are one of the most entertaining and professional acts in the UK. Offering a diversity in musical styles and featuring four excellent musicians. ColvinQuarmby have that extra magic which separates them from the merely excellent – they are outstanding. Gerry Colvin has written some great songs and he delivers them with an effervescence and vitality that immediately wins over audiences. The bands performance slips by far too quickly and you find that you have been smiling throughout. Humour, warmth and dazzling performance make ColvinQuarmby a must-see band.” (Alan Surtees, Festival Director, Shrewsbury Folk Festival)
“ColvinQuarmby are one of the most exciting and energetic bands around at the moment. Superb lyrics, beautiful vocals, clever accompaniments and brilliant between-song patter which will have the audience helpless with laughter. The most difficult thing about them is finding a way to describe them to the uninitiated. The nearest we have come up with is Folk ‘n’ Roll“. (Ruth Bramley)
What you get with CQ are original and superbly crafted songs reflecting the ups, the downs and the absurdities of everyday life in the noughties, fine musicianship, four piece harmonies to die for, and a totally unique performing style. It’s a great show, be it in an intimate club setting or a full to capacity festival marquee. We wish CQ the success they richly deserve – but hope they don’t get too expensive 😮)” (Richard Barnes, Rugby Roots)
“More hooks than a fisherman’s convention, chirpier than a bucketful of Trill!” (Folk On Tap)
