Artist Biography by

The Quintette Plus, originally known as the Quintette, consisted of five Detroit teenagers--Lily Adams, Michael Turner, Andrew Smith, Marvin Marshall, and Floyd Julian--who were signed to SVR Records in 1965. SVR head Jack Chekaway thought the "Plus" sounded better and was more appropriate, since the band was heavily supported by a cadre of Motown staff musicians.

They were an instrumental band that, in a career consisting of two singles, managed to snag some serious sales for in Florida and the southern United States. "Shop Around" b/w "Grits and Grease" and "Work Song" b/w "Summertime" all turned up on Collectables' The Cicadelic 60s-Volume 8.
