Product Notes

Quick Step John is a Philadelphia based band with melodic and catchy songwriting, honest and accessible lyrics and an energetic and unforgettable live experience. The band consists of Craig Whitaker (vocals, guitar), Ed Bagden (Keyboards, vocals), Fran Camardella (guitar), and Greg Maragos (bass). Formed in 2001, Quick Step John recorded a three-song demo that quickly earned the attention of Clear Channel Talent Buyer, Geoff Gordon. With only two shows under their belt, Quick Step John performed at the 2,800 seat Electric Factory, in front of a sold-out crowd, opening for The Pat McGee Band. They impressed the booking agent and earned themselves the opening slot on the following night at New York City's Irving Plaza. From there, the ball started rolling. The group has also supported Gavin DeGraw, Antigone Rising, Virginia Coalition, The Clarks, members of the Grateful Dead, Rusted Root, Mason Jennings and Angie Aparo. In 2003, Gordon selected Quick Step John to support Matchbox 20 and Sugar Ray at the Wachovia Spectrum, in front of 15,000. They followed their Spectrum appearance with a live performance on NBC. In the summers of 2003 and 2004, the Philadelphia radio station WPLY 100.3 selected the band to perform at their annual 'Feztival' at the Tweeter Center in Camden, New Jersey. The band appeared with national acts such as Beck, Audioslave, The Beastie Boys and The Strokes. Their debut EP, 'The Life In Our Years,' showcases the growth of the band's songwriting and arranging skills Since the release of the EP, XM Satellite Radio selected the band out of 500+ weekly submissions from around the world and picked up two of the tracks, 'Natural' and 'With Only Me,' for airplay on XMU, channel 43. The band also appeared for a third time on NBC in support of their new E.P.. PRESS EXCERPTS: 'I thought they were great... opening acts can go so many ways. When we get there and hear a band like that we just say 'Thank God.'' -Rob Thomas, Singer/Songwriter Matchbox 20 "Quick Step John brings a vibrant attitude from the moment they walk into a venue. Their natural musical ability excites an audience and they deliver great sound.' -Marty Garcia, President Future Sonics, Inc. Audio Consultant & Ear Monitor Manufacturer "One of the greatest finds in Philly...always delivers. From being on Rusted Root to Matchbox 20, they played to the crowd." -Geoff Gordon, Talent Buyer Clear Channel Entertainment Philadelphia, PA "QSJ has become one of Grape Street Philadelphia's strongest headliners, providing excellent performances and setting the bar for emerging bands in the Philly music scene." -Joseph Cahill, Owner Grape Street Philadelphia Philadelphia, PA "The most musical, unsigned band on the East Coast. Their songwriting and arranging skills are totally refreshing." -Aaron Smith Songwriter/Producer: The Temptations, Patti LaBelle "Quick Step John is truly a gem of a act that puts music first.
