What do you get when you add a Pearl drum kit, a pair of Vater drumsticks and a left-handed drummer? You get the unprecedented, dynamic, musicianship of Quinton J. Robinson.

His diverse, innovative musical talents can be found in a wide variety of music to include gospel, R&B, and contemporary jazz just to name a few.
Q began his musical journey at the early age of three playing in church.

King and the Grammy Award winning Kurt Carr and the Kurt Carr Singers are just a few of the “who’s who” among his list. He attributes all of his success to the unwavering support of his family and his Christian rearing. He says, “Without God, his life would be nothing, and he is ever thankful for his gift of musicianship.”
