The Quins are not afraid to embrace their roots in classic rock, blues, punk, and soul in a way that doesn’t feel overdone and fits into a contemporary market that spans multiple genres. Their live shows reach a level of energy that engages the crowd, brings them closer together and shows the younger generation that guitars are still cool. Existing in the vein of their heroes Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Queen, Grateful Dead, Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix and The Eagles, The Quins should’ve been born in 1942 like the rock legends of old. They are not intimidated by the modern times and embrace the fact that they may have to stand alone fighting to the death for what Rock and Roll truly is: unapologetic, raw, and real.
They have released two full length LP’s and a single in the last 4 years and have been constantly gigging all over New England, steadily making a name for themselves in the rock and festival scenes. They have shared bills with the likes of Stephen Marley, Slightly Stoopid, Samantha Fish and Lake Street Dive.
Since the release of their sophomore LP, “Beech Hill,” in December of 2017, The Quins have received attention in the press and were nominated for the 2018 New England Music Award for Best Rock Act. They’ve been invited to perform at high profile festivals such as the Levitate Music and Arts Festival and the Boston Freedom Rally. They are currently in the studio working on their third full length album and are planning to be on the road by the summer of 2019.
