About The Chris Dunne Band

Country band
Woking
Public liability insurance of £10 million
A Country band based in the south of the UK, we currently play mainly in Surrey, Berkshire and the surrounding areas but do travel as well.

We are a 6 piece Country Band based around Surrey and Berkshire, UK. We travel all over the UK bringing covers of American Country Music to our audiences. The band consists of Chris Dunne on Vocals, Roly Eales on Lead Guitar & Vocals, Tom Brierley on Rhythm Guitar & Vocals, Nick Bevan on Bass Guitar & Vocals, Lee Feltham on Drums and Gerry Hogan on Pedal Steel Guitar. Many of our fans will recognise Gerry Hogan from the world of country music as he has played with the likes of Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, Vince Gill and of course Albert Lee and Hogans Heroes. The band originally formed in 2013 with a five piece line up not including Tom or Gerry and we were delighted when Tom joined us in early 2014 to complete the full sound that we were looking for. Gerry joined us in late in 2014 to complete the six piece line up that we are today. We have managed to win Flights CMC band of the year for 2015 and 2016 (the only band ever to win this twice in a row) and in February 2018, we were grateful to be awarded the Band of the Year trophy at Southern Country Magazine Awards held at Lakeside in Surrey.

I run a club called Golden Spurs CMC based in East Sussex and only book country acts. I met Chris Dunne and the band approx 3 years ago whilst performing at the Lakeside Country Music Club. I have booked them 3 times since and each time is a WOW factor. This band are fabulous, very friendly and I very much recommend this band not just for Country Music. These guys play their instruments and you can see they enjoy performing and entertaining their audience. Our club is in East Sussex and Chris Dunne played for us at our 1st Country Music Festival in a very large barn and for our NYE 2018. I have them booked already for NYE 2019. Angela Fox

What can I say without gushing? We booked Chris and the band for our wedding in 11th August 2018 @ Woodland Manor in Clapham. Firstly the communication was first class and nothing was too much trouble which was no small ask as they were dealing with Bridezilla! A full play list was provide for us to choose our favourites. The guys agreed to play an acoustic set, outside in the garden while the champagne reception was held and they had everyone up dancing and singing along setting a great atmosphere for the rest of the day.... the music was first class and catered for all ages... after all the dancing we were all ready for our wedding breakfast! The guys then held centre stage for our evening entertainment and again got everyone dancing and even put up with the Bride making a surprise on stage appearance to serenade her new husband! After a short break the band struck again with more popular great country favourites! They ended the night with a spectacular finale of the auctioneer! The band were truly professional and made our day a country fairytale! We loved them so much we have booked them again for a party in March 2019! They are a true representation of the amazing UK country scene! I hope to see them at a lot more venues in the future. Keep it country! Tessa (Beds)
