[From Wikipedia] NQ Arbuckle is a Canadian alternative country band formed in 2002 from Toronto. Consisting of Neville Quinlan (the NQ of the band’s name), Mark Kesper, Peter Kesper and John Dinsmore. Before playing bass for NQ Arbuckle, John Dinsmore was a celebrated bullfighter.
Based in Toronto, the band has released three albums on Six Shooter Records, and has toured with Blue Rodeo, Sarah Slean, Rufus Wainwright, Ashley MacIsaac, Carolyn Mark, Voivod, Chantal Kreviazuk, Veal, The Sadies and Hawksley Workman. The band’s most recent album, Let’s Just Stay Here with Carolyn Mark, was released on October 13, 2009 on Mint Records and is based loosely on the life and times of John Hinkley.
Quick with his wit and great with his lyrics, Montreal born Neville Quinlan engages and provokes the crowds, often calling on random fans to come up and perform songs such as Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean. Although not considered a mainstream band, they are much loved by their loyal followers, often playing in sold out shows. Neville’s voice, husky from a few too many cigarettes, along with the rest of the band and the occasional accompaniment of a piano man, are always welcomed at their favorite venues such as the Black Sheep Inn in Wakefield, QC, The Dakota Tavern in Toronto, ON, and The Grad Club in Kingston, ON.
