Q.E.D is a four-member rock band from Winnipeg, Manitoba presently promoting their third CD titled “[Sometimes a Cigar…is just a Cigar]”. Conceived in 1995 in Edmonton Alberta, Q.E.D has always strived to deliver a highly energetic and stimulating audio-visual show. Q.E.D has played successful tours in Canada, India and US.
A tour of Canada and Asia is being planned to support the latest album.
Recorded and co-produced at Red Door Recording Studios (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan) by Ryan Andersen and mastered in Los Angeles, USA by Rob Beaton, "[Sometimes a Cigar...is just a Cigar]" contains eight guitar driven, melodic songs.
