For years, this four-person group has maintained their characteristics of hard rock, neither bowing their heads before the reality nor compromising on the tough musical environment. They have gone through so many twists and turns for a long time and have experienced how to survive in the terrible conditions, but fortunately, they finally found out their exclusive music styles and how to showcase their extraordinary music creation.
Quarterback remains for staying on the playing field and on the fantastic musical stage through their thousands of performances.
