For the past five years The Chris Rivers Band has been the “Official Band of Gilley’s Dallas”, playing every Friday-Saturday night. We have appeared in two episodes of the new hit TV series DALLAS and our recording was featured on episode 3.

We usually open for Texas artist or headline, play all night, on Friday’s and Saturdays.

Prior to that we played 250+ dates a year from 1995-2001. We played Billy Bob’s, Rodeo Exchange, Pearl’s Dancehall, Cowboys Arlington and Cowboys Red River, Grizzly Rose in Denver, and clubs around Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma.

We have appeared on FOX4 Good Day and opened for Dwight Yokum, Willie Nelson, Peter Frampton and Ringo Starr, the Mavericks, Johnny Lee, Gary Allen, Jason Aldean, and many, many more.

In the spring of 2010 we finished our new CD entitled “Confessions of a Fool” and plan to release our first single off the new CD in 2011 in the US.

In 2009 we released “Trail of Broken Hearts” and “I’m to Blame” to the European charts and both songs garnered top ten spots on the charts and “I’m to Blame” stayed on the European Charts for over 26 weeks. Here is a link of three songs off of the new CD on our Reverbnation page.

We are also available for any private or corporate events. Some of our previous clients include:

  • AT&T
  • Keller Williams
  • Texas Retina Associates
  • Online Business Solutions
  • President George W Bush
  • Boeing
  • Proactiv
  • Waste Management Inc
  • Ingenix

We are now looking to travel more in the upcoming year and working to get a larger fan base.

Thanks for your time and if you have other events where you need a great country band (original or traditional) let us know.

I look forward to working with you in the future.
