David Wood (Francis Rossi)
David 'Woody' Wood has returned as full-time Francis Rossi in TQE. He is a passionate Rossi fan having wanted to 'be' Francis since he was 4yrs old! Woody started as guitar tech for TQE in early 2017 and suddenly found himself playing the role of his idol after circumstances found the band needing a new Rossi in August 2017. During the first nine months of 2018 Woody juggled between roles as Rossi and Rhino, to cover the bassist position for the Matt Letley shows. However, he is now extremely pleased to be back in his preferred role as full-time 'Francis Rossi' in TQE.
Dave Crawte (Rick Parfitt)
Dave has been a professional musician since he left school. He was a founder member of the renowned New Wave of British Heavy Metal band 'Trespass' which later transformed into 'Blue Blood' for a period during the late 80's and early 90's before reverting to Trespass. Both bands released singles and albums and toured in the UK, Europe and Japan. Dave has been a lifelong, passionate Quo fan since he was converted to the cause after watching them play on Top Of The Pops at boarding school! From that moment on he just wanted to ‘be’ Rick Parfitt and eventually achieved his dream by playing in a quality tribute duo called 'Not Quite Quo' and now The Quo Experience. Dave is a solid rhythm guitarist who pays attention to the tiny details, making his role in the band as Rick Parfitt, the powerhouse of Quo, as realistic as possible without actually being the man himself!
Graham Partridge (Andy Bown)
Graham has been ivory tinkling since he was eight years old, being classically trained on the piano and church organ. The plastic palm trees of the dance halls and clubs soon beckoned and he has played professionally throughout his life. With extensive touring experience in various bands, including many theatre tours, Graham fits in perfectly to the line-up of The Quo Experience. He has also been a life-long Quo fan but only now has he been able to fulfil his dream of playing in the style of Andy Bown. Graham is a superb keyboard player who captures the magic of Andy Bown's playing and vocals perfectly, which certainly takes The Quo Experience to a new level.
Del Fletcher (Bass)
Del Fletcher is a very experienced 'Quo' bassist who has a serious passion for everything Status Quo! He has worked for a few SQ tribute bands and TQE is delighted to have him back on board as full time bassist after his short stint with the band towards the end of 2017.
More on Del and his gear to come.
Jay Griffin (Drums)
Jay has been playing drums since he can remember.. first using pots, pans and cushions until he bought his first kit in the late '80s.
Completely self taught and extremely passionate about what he does, Jay has played in many bands throughout his career including Rhonda and the Great Unknown, whith whom he feels very proud to have recorded an album with. Recently he has been playing with Betty & The Chevrons, a Rock/Southern Rock covers band he formed with his wife Sam, the new manager of TQE and his partner at Beat The Drum Promotions. Having grown up wishing he was Francis Rossi, Jay is a life long Quo fan and is over the moon to have become a full time member of TQE, albeit on the drums rather than as the lead guitarist!
