Suzi Quatro was raised in a musical family, including 3 sisters and one brother. They all played various instruments. Suzi herself made her debut on stage playing bongo’s in her father’s jazz band, “The Art Quatro Trio”.
From an early age, she studied classical piano and percussion. Aged 14 she began an all-girl band with elder sister Patti, called “The Pleasure Seekers”. She was ‘told’ she would be playing bass guitar, which was as tall as her! Quickly she became the lead singer and front person, and the band, very successfully, toured for 7 years. Along the way, they also released a few singles. In 1969 they changed their name to “Cradle”.
A couple of years later Mickie Most, producer, came to a concert, leading on to him offering Suzi a solo contract. She flew to England in 1971 to begin her journey to fame.
Soon after Suzi began working with now-legendary songwriters Chinn and Chapman (Mike Chapman also produced), which resulted in the huge hit, “Can The Can”. This went to number one in May 1973 and continued on to sell two and a half million copies worldwide. Between 1973 and 1980, Suzi Quatro featured in the British charts for no less than 101 weeks, and has sold to date over 55 million records, and still counting. Her hits include “48 Crash”, “Too Big”, “Devil Gate Drive”, “Daytona Demon”, “The Wild One”, “She’s in Love With You”, “Mama’s Boy”, “If You Can’t Give Me Love”, “Rock Hard”, and the million-seller in the USA “Stumblin In” a duet with Chris Norman.
Suzi was one of the first rock and roll acts to go to Russia. In 1991 she performed for over half a million people in just six weeks.
In January 1999 she started her radio career with BBC Radio 2, which is ongoing today. Suzi is a very popular DJ and was even nominated for music broadcaster of the year at the Sony radio awards in 2006.

Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!

I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.
George – Golden Sands Holiday Park
We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
