Biography

Quinn’s Uncles is an acoustic rock act hailing from Chicago. Made up of the brother team of Tim Meade and Jim Meade, QU sounds like the Foo Fighters and the Allman Brothers had a baby, and then forced said baby to listen to a lot of Bon Jovi growing up. Check out their newest release, “Overdogs,” with songs ranging from the Stone Temple Pilots-esque, “Summer Sun,” to the southern-fried rocker, “Sweet Tea” – it’s the cheapest way to take the Uncles home with you.
Tim Meade is a former member of the national touring group Blind Man’s Bluff. He has also toured the nation twice with the hit musical, “Schoolhouse Rock Live!” A native of the Detroit area, Tim has sung and played guitar in countless rock bands. However, the unique blend of two brother’s voices and guitars cannot be denied – Quinn’s Uncles is his best work yet.
Jim Meade is a Detroit area native as well (go figure). Jim, too, has led countless rock bands through the trenches as lead singer and guitarist. No stranger to the theatre himself, he was recently recruited by Dominican University to play Jesus in “Jesus Christ Superstar,” the ultimate challenge in rock opera. Jim brings his songwriting talents and English-major lyrics to make Quinn’s Uncles an extremely tuneful and thoughtful band.
