Kimber Trotter is MQ's highly versatile and comedic female front who founded the band in 1998 when the group performed costumed as Madonna, Boy George, Billy Idol and Prince!! The band has had stories written about them in the St. Pete Times as well as an MTV interview where "THE" Martha Quinn herself (1 of 5 original VJ's from MTV 1981) commented that she was flattered the band uses her name!! The band often says, jokingly, that Martha Quinn is in the band but never shows up to any of the gigs!!!
Martha Quinn has opened for such acts as Frankie Goes to Hollywood, A Flock of Seagulls, The Fixx, and Modern English to name a few.
MQ's lineup includes keyboardist/guitarist/vocalist Richie Silva who is the band's musical director.
