Q The Music are an explosive and awe-inspiring 13 Piece live band. They perform ALL the title themes from the James Bond Films. They were formed in 2004 as the first ever James Bond Tribute Band in the world, and have since toured the UK extensively and been flown abroad to appear at events, establishing a worldwide reputation.
In 2017, they were asked to perform at Sir Roger Moore's Official Memorial Event at Pinewood Studios - the dedication of a new sound stage in his name. The event was attended by Royalty and the who's who of the British Film & TV Industry such as Sir Michael Caine, Dame Joan Collins, David Walliams and many of the James Bond Film contributors.
They left quite an impression on the attendees too:
"When our thoughts turned to planning Sir Roger’s memorial event at Pinewood in October 2017, we knew James Bond would play a significant part and one of our first calls was to Warren and the James Bond Tribute Band. They helped make a wonderful day an extraordinary day."
-Sir Roger Moore's Office
In 2007, the band shared joint billing with The National Symphony Orchestra at the Quex Prom in the Park to over 6,000 people. In 2013 they appeared on the BBC for a Bond Themed TV wedding.
As well as appearing at events in The Maldives, Monte Carlo, Guernsey, Cyprus, Gibraltar, Czech Republic, Italy, Majorca & Germany, the band has also played at almost every major venue in the UK including The Natural History Museum, NEC Birmingham, Royals Courts Of Justice, The Waldorf, Pinewood Studios and many many more.
Why not take things to the next level and have one of the best and most awe-inspiring Tribute bands around at your event?
Q The Music will provide your entire evening’s musical entertainment including 2 hours of live music.
Whether you choose to just have Bond music, or have a set of party music, this band has all the basses covered. They have up to 2 hours of James Bond covers, and far more in Party and Dance music. Their party set is just as electric as the Bond set - and will pack any dance floor of any age range with their grooves and moves.
They provide PA, Lighting, Sound Engineer and DJ as part of their price, and optional extras include dancers, look-a-likes, stunt team, backdrops and props.
They can cater for a wide range of requirements when it comes to size, space and budget, with solo singer, 5, 7 & 13 Piece - with the larger groups being fully LIVE with no backing tracks or pre-recorded music involved.
The band comprises of some of the very top musicians in the country from leading Orchestras, West End Shows and Session Musicians. The 13 Piece version brings to your event a sound that has never been heard and is unrivalled when it comes to James Bond Covers, and their stunning 6 piece horn section is not to be missed.
From the very first time the now instantly recognizable James Bond Theme was heard in “Dr. No” the James Bond films have developed into perhaps the most popular series ever. The exotic locations, the actors, the Bond Girls, the Villains, Miss Moneypenny, Q, the Gadgets – these are all things we have come to expect from a Bond film, BUT of course, also a stunning, electrifying and engrossing musical score is part of that package! To add the icing on the cake, there is always the feature of an outstanding and market leading singer to deliver that classic Bond title track.
Q The Music, being the longest serving and only professional James Bond Band know just how to give you an experience that will leave your guests talking about it for years and years - guaranteed.
"They say that John Barry's music was to James Bond films what hair was to Samson.
If that is the case, Q The Music Show - James Bond Tribute Band's concert make its tight, cohesive sound as strong as any orchestra.
A hugely entertaining revue by charismatic musicians with evocative vocal renditions which encapsulates the glamour of Bondian classics and breathes vibrant new life into lesser known Bond gems, Q The Music Show impossibly captures that Big Bond sound from from Barry and beyond. Where all other Bond concerts end, Q The Music Show begins! "

"Dear Warren, I would like to thank you and your band members for the amazing performance during my website’s 20th anniversary James Bond party, on October 25th 2015 at the Pinewood Hotel. Performing the complete catalogue of James Bond theme songs in front of an audience of 100 Bond connoisseurs, fan club presidents, magazine editors and Bond music lovers from around the world must have given you some sleepless nights, but I can tell you the verdict was unanimous: The best performance of theme songs we ever witnessed! It was an awesome show and I can only congratulate you with the group of talented people you have formed around you. The way you guys nailed those songs was simply amazing. I have never heard the words “Better than the original” more often in one evening than during my event. So once again, thank you so much for all the work you put in to it. I will surely recommend Q The Music to all my friends from the James Bond fan community, as I am sure whoever books your band will have the most fabulous James Bond tribute band imaginable during his or her event. Fans will not be disappointed! Looking forward to working with you again in the future, all the best, Martijn Mulder Onthetracksof007"

"I have been a fan of James Bond music since I was 8. I book to see every concert, every tribute. I even flew to New York to see The famous Losers' Lounge tribute to John Barry and James Bond. I have not missed one Carl Davis show BUT the Band and the show that tops them all is Q The Music 's wonderful journey through the Bond catalogue. Magnificent singing and arrangements so true to the originals but electrifying 'modern' literally blow the audience away. The show is seamless with a witty and suave Compere that makes the evening a complete entertainmentThis is a Band and a show that will convert you to a James Bond music fan (even if you didn't think you would be)007 may be the theme but the score is 0010 out of 10 for this terrific show. I will never be able to thank you all enough for [url hidden] sheer brilliance alone is beyond words but the performance of you all and a most fantastic Compere made this a perfect night I cannot wait to meet you all again I am almost in tears as I write this.

"“Q The Music Show is a thrilling and entertaining band that brings the Bond classics we know so well in an original way while staying very close to the original. I particularly liked the rawness of “The Man With The Golden Gun” and the amazing instrumental Bond 77. The band members clearly enjoy what they’re doing and so does the audience”. Remmert Van Braam - Bond Lifestyle

"On 25th October I and almost 100 others had the pleasure of sitting down to an evening of Bond hosted by that inimitable photo bomber and author of the superb book On the tracks of 007... Martijn Mulder. We started the evening with an excellent dinner then, after a short interlude, were introduced by Bond lover and self-deprecating compare, Terry Bamber to the wonderful, Q The Music Show. Having never heard of them before the 13 piece band began playing Bond music I must admit I didn’t know what to expect. It’s strange how sometimes we wait in the audience gazing into the unknown thinking, ‘Oh yea, more near enough music!’ Yet when the first few chords electrify your ears you stop what you are thinking and give the musicians your full on attention. Well that’s what we had! The singers Kerry Shultz and Matthew Ford sang a myriad of Bond songs to well-deserved rapturous applause. The animated guitarist David D’Andrade sang only one song, You Know my Name and it was brilliant! I think I can honestly say they are the best Bond tribute band I have ever had the pleasure of seeing and listening to… if you get an opportunity to see them just take some time out, occasionally close your eyes and listen to quality musician’s at their best..” Duncan Carter - Bond Posters

"Last weekend (Saturday 22nd March) I had the pleasure of being invited to Jean and Dickie Bamber's Diamond Wedding anniversary celebrations held at Heatherden Hall, Pinewood Studios. Dickie has worked in the film industry for over 50 years on productions such as Genevieve, The Ipcress File, Thunderball, Battle of Britain, A Bridge Too Far and many of the Carry On comedies, to name but a few. Their son Terry, himself a veteran of the industry, and who I first met on the set of the James Bond film GoldenEye, did his parent's proud. Following a champagne reception we dined in the Pinewood house restaurant (remember the scene in Who Dares Wins where the hostages are held around a dining table in the US Ambassador's residence? Well, we were in the same room.) The evening's cabaret was provided by the 13-piece band 'Q the Music' who specialize in performing music from the James Bond films. From Dr. No to Skyfall, this mini-orchestra performed some of the best cover versions I have ever heard. They were brilliant. Bond fans themselves, their renditions of even the instrumentals such as 'Bond 77' from The Spy Who Loved Me and 'Runaway' from For Your Eyes Only, were spot on. Kit Mlynar on saxaphone, and David D'Andrade on guitar, were excellent, as was lead vocalist Kerry Schultz. Wow, what a voice. This was professionalism at its best. Lead vocalist Kerry Schultz sure belts out a Bond hit song! If you are a James Bond fan, or simply like to hear movie music live, I highly recommend this band. In fact, they are at The Lincoln Drill Hall on April 18/19, and in Wycombe on May 11th. Check out their web site for further details and treat yourself to a fabulous night out.

DO YOU EXPECT US TO TALK (PODCAST) - REBECCA ANDREWS
"Absolutely sublime, just phenominal. I think Q The Music are just incredible. I was speaking to friends after the show - the music of Bond encompasses so many different genres; Pop, Rock, Jazz, Classical and Q The Music does them all and Warren (band manager) I think is just an amazing person. I'm a huge fan of Sam Smith, but Kerry's version of Writing's On The Wall is way better. I also thought the rocking version of You Know My Name was absolutely stonking, really amazing, and I now have a renewed appreciation for The Living Daylights. They brought their own flavour to the songs and improved on some of them as well! Rebecca Andrews - Do You Expect Us To Talk? - James Bond Podcast

"The band was amazing. I really loved the Spectre theme song - it was amazing! My favourite was Surrender (from Tomorrow Never Dies)" Marcos Kontze - James Bond Brasil
JAMES BOND RADIO - CHRIS WRIGHT & TOM SEARS
"We were nervous this was one of those things where you had to pretend they are really good, and they are not really - but we sat there and we were like, this is actually amazing, once they hit On Her Majesty's Secret Service (8th track), it was literally amazing all the way home. We even thought The Man With The Golden Gun was better than the original - the performance out did the original in our eyes. The energy was there, they played off each other so well and we both even had tears in our eyes at some points. Then they did Writings On The Wall - only their second ever performance of it - and Kerry rocked it, she nailed it, I had a real tear in my eye. It was beautiful, it really was fantastic. The ending of the first half, where the brass section come out to the front of the stage in Nobody Does It Better, that's a real show ender, a real climax." Chris Wright & Tom Sears - James Bond Radio
SWEDISH BOND FAN CLUB - ANDERS FREJDH

AUSTRIAN BOND FAN CLUB - GERNOT WOLF
"We really enjoyed the On The Tracks Of 007 event, a wonderful evening with a fantastic music band. Classic Bond songs are always something special, but especially when they are so well presented. In particular the new Spectre theme song "Writing's On The Wall" was so much better performed than the original. Thank you for the great entertainment." Gernot Wolf - Austrian James Bond Fan Club

Graham Malvern (cousin of Madeline Smith): Absolutely fantastic, please pass on our thanks to all involved especially Kerry for a brilliant night of all things Bond.
Madeline had a fabulous time at the Q The Music concert in Fleet, Hampshire on Sunday 27th November. Oh what a magical evening, the music and singing was absolutely breathtaking and I cannot think of an evening I have enjoyed more. I shall be spreading the word far and wide! Q The Music are without doubt the best James Bond Tribute Band in the business.
