Sir Q, the imposter delivers a sound so unique that your most dormant senses are intrigued. Hailing from Haverhill, Massachusetts, Sir Q tugs at the same nostalgia with locals as the city's abandoned shoe factories and mills. What resonates is the bands common passion for music and the influence of cultural elements like art, film and literature.
Founded in 2004, Sir Q is a fresh approach to the proverbial verse-chorus-verse rock band. Together, Gene Fontaine, guitar and vocals; Matt Learoyd, drums and vocals; Tony Rossetti, bass and vocals; and Addam Zaino, guitar and vocals, craft a complex sound armed with dense vocal harmonies and angular rhythms. Each band member lends to the vocal dichotomy: Think Beach boys meet the alt movement. Sir Q evokes bands in a similar vein like Jesus Lizard, Nirvana, Melvins, Queens of the Stone Age and Fugazi;
while still standing very much on it's own.
Sir Q has headlined at some of Boston and New Yorks's most notable venues including The Paradise Rock Club, The Middle East (Upstairs and Downstairs) Arlene's Grocery and Billï¿½s Bar.
