Quickdraw Records -- our story

Quickdraw Records
   
    

 

Originating in Pennsylvania and then moving on to Delaware and now based in central Florida, Quickdraw Records has evolved from a one man violin show into a promotional organization for a number of central Florida bands, the goals being the marketing, promotion, recording of albums for sale, recording of demos for Nashville labels, and the securing of gigs and shows at venues and events in Florida and across the nation.  We have had a gig booking relationship with CJS Productions, based in Tampa, for the past several years.  We are also represented by John in Houston PR LLC for national bookings and public relations requests.
