JOHN COGHLAN'S QUO

John Coghlan 2.jpeg

John is Status Quo's original drummer, having started with the band in 1962 and touring, recording and playing with them until 1981. He also appeared on both sell-out Quo Frantic Four Reunion Tours in 2013 and 2014.

So, when he asked to play The Bear Club, how could we refuse, so for a special rock 'n' roll Saturday night, we welcome John Coghlan's Quo, a 4-piece band recreating the music from those early days of Quo. Rarely seen in such an intimate venue, 100 lucky people will get to rock out up close this August Bank Holiday.
