When GQ first started singing together in July of 2011, they knew right away they had something unique. Each voice brought an important quality to the group’s sound. They knew they wanted to try and stay away from traditional a cappella arrangements and explore songs and sounds that weren’t common.

GQ has a passion for being true to a sound that is uniquely their own, and to vocal music education for young singers. Each member of GQ is involved in music education and continue to pursue their own careers in the arts and education. They have traveled the U.S. and have performed in Canada, Germany, The Netherlands, Spain, and England. They have been featured on A Prairie Home Companion twice, and have made waves on the internet with a YouTube video reaching almost 7 million hits.
