Q.O.K. are real Americans who support our Warfighters and their families. Their music is amazing and uplifting - we couldn’t ask for a better group to entertain our troops
Q.O.K.'s music is fantastic and their focus is even better! Their support of our veterans makes them top notch in my book! Can't wait for the next event!

We enjoyed their performance very much! A repertoire good for the entire family. Such positive energy!
...I was impressed from the beginning from their professionalism...but even more so when they explained they wanted to donate proceeds of their merchandise and take general donations for Hurricane Harvey and Irma relief, making charity an emphasis. During the actual performance, Q.O.K. played a strong blend of their beautiful original songs and covers of well-known hits. They are very engaging and interacted really well with the crowd and did an excellent job getting them on their feet and dancing. They were all so excited and full of energy that they even significantly energized me! As it always happens during performances, there were a couple of technical difficulties but Q.O.K. dealt with them very calmly and professionally with little notice by the audience. After the performance the entire band also made it a real point to thank all of the staff that was working and were so gracious and lovely. They overall were a real delight to work with and a band that I personally hope we get to have back at the festival next year as well and I can’t wait to see where they go in the future.
