Quo Day goes down a stormPosted: May 17, 2009
I was delighted to be invited down to Port Laois on Saturday to introduce the band at Ireland’s first annual “Quo-Day” at Cloisters pub.
Around 150 turned up for the event, which featured Status Quo concert footage playing on a big plasma screen during the evening, with two hours of live music from tribute band Heavy Traffic in a marquee outside which went down very well with both older and younger fans. The band really knew their material, and threw themselves into the performance with gusto.
A nice touch was starting their set with “Caroline” after my introduction!
Hopefully this even will grow year on year.
