Welcome to Quinn’s Garage!

We invite you to take a sneak peak at a new television show coming your way soon. The show is a grass roots program that follows family and friends engaged in pursuing adventures that center around wheels, engines, and music. Quinn’s Garage is an entertaining television show that invites people of all ages and backgrounds to come along for a ride each week, and that ride will begin and end at Quinn’s Garage.

The host of our show is Benny Quinn, a successful Mastering Engineer with over 30 years experience on Music Row in Nashville, Tennessee. Benny’s love for great sounding music and engines is the rhythmic heart of this show. Family, friends, and even a few celebrities will accompany Benny for an entertaining ride that viewers everywhere will find embraceable because of its “down home” nature. Nashville, Tennessee and its beautiful surroundings will serve as the backdrop for weekly rides on dragsters, choppers, dirt bikes, ATVs, 4x4’s, and other rides that will surprise viewers.

“I don’t know everything about anything,” admits host Benny Quinn, “but I do know a little bit about a lot of things. I’m just like ya‘ll I’m an ordinary guy who is tired of flipping channels and hearing bleeps throughout the shows found on television today. The most important thing about this show to me is that Mom and Dad can sit the whole family down without worrying about the rating and know that they will all be entertained.”

Benny and his production staff have a definite view about the show’s content. The Quinn’s Garage crew will create great stories that will never imitate some of television’s other “cookie-cutter” programming. Wheels and engines may be the focal point each week, but the overall content and theme of the show is informational, family-oriented entertainment for all ages.

One part of the show that will draw viewers in is a weekly segment that follows the beginnings of the Quinn’s Garage Racing Team. In our inaugural season, we will watch a girl and boy compete to become the first member and driver of Team Quinn Racing and the Team Quinn Junior Dragster. They and the viewer will both find out there is much more to being a good driver than just knowing about wheels and engines. Benny will teach them the responsibility, safety, and drive required to take the wheel in Team Quinn Racing and show them how that mirrors life itself.

In Benny’s words, “I hope ya’ll will come along for the ride or at least stop by. I fully expect to learn a lot of new and fun things right along with the viewer. So come on over and visit us here at Quinn’s Garage.”

Benny Quinn

A native of Nashville, Benny grew up working and playing on his grandfather's farm. Although he spent most of his childhood in rural Nashville, his musical diversity is far from limited to country music.

Throughout his high school career, he played football and baseball eventually attending college on a baseball scholarship. He currently enjoys riding his Harley-Davidson, racing his drag car, and playing baseball with his nephews. But, his biggest joy is producing and working with a variety of artists and producers.

In college, Benny had plans to be an accountant, but he accidentally fell into the music business and never left! His first position in 1975 was with Dominion Records, producing, selling, and promoting a syndicated broadcast, "Hank Williams and the Drifting Cowboys." Working with this show was all the encouragement he needed to delve into the music business.

At Nashville Record Production, Benny was introduced to the mastering business. He was then offered a position as chief mastering engineer and general manager of "The Lacquer Place" in 1979. Four years later, he moved to Masterfonics, where he's been mastering and producing ever since.

In 1995, Benny had the privilege of working on a Keith Whitley project, which involved cutting new tracks around Keith's existing vocal. He recalls, "It was a challenge to get everything to work precisely, but it was such an honor to be trusted with the project."

Through his love for racing, Benny landed a project for Winston Cup race fans that involved producing an entire album. (He even co-wrote some of the songs on the album.).

Over the last 25 years, Benny has worked with greats from every genre of music, from Porter Wagoner to Eric Clapton, DC Talk to Aaron Copeland, Cyrille Neville to Elvis Presley, and Isaac Hayes to Bill Monroe. He has a love for and experience with every kind of music. With this kind of diversity and 25 years of experience, he puts mastery into being a master engineer.
