John Coghlan’s QUOMasham Town Hall | Little Market Place | HG4 4DY
June 22 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Original Status Quo drummer John Coghlan, with his great band, brings you a night of vintage Quo from the glory years of 1962-81 when he performed with them.
John Coghlan joined Francis Rossi and Alan Lancaster in their newly-formed band ‘The Spectres’ in 1962. The group went through a series of name changes before becoming Status Quo in the late 60s when Rick Parfitt joined the line-up.
The years that followed saw a string of legendary hits including Caroline, Down Down, Roll Over Lay Down, Rockin’ All Over the World, Whatever You Want, What You’re Proposing and so many more – Quo ended up with 22 UK top ten singles and 66 UK chart singles, ninth in the all time list.
In 2013 and 2014, John rejoined Rossi, Parfitt and Lancaster for two sell-out Status Quo Frantic Four Reunion Tours, appearing all over the UK and Europe and reigniting the excitement of the early days of Quo.
During the late nineties John Coghlan’s Quo was formed and through various line-ups has enjoyed regular gigs all over the UK and Europe. The current band consists of John on drums, with Mick Hughes on guitar and vocals, Rick Chase on bass and vocals, and Rick Abbs on guitar and vocals.
This team recreate an authentic 70’s Quo Sound in keeping with John’s time with the band. For Quo fans and critics alike, this is regarded as Quo’s “classic” period.
“John Coghlan’s Quo take you on a joyous journey of his golden past in one of the most celebrated and much loved rock bands the UK has ever produced. A night of beer-raising, feelgood-factor Status Quo classics’ – Mark Taylor, www.metaltalk.net
