The Chris Buck Band will be lighting up the Let R Buck Saloon with Karen Lee Batten for this year’s foot stomping Stampede dances.
The team will be on stage for the first three nights of the four-day, five-performance rodeo.
The Chris Buck Band has been climbing country popularity charts with the speed of a brahma bull itching to throw its rider.
The band won the B.C. Country Music Association’s 2014/2015 Country Club Act of the Year award and the 2015 Group/Duo of the year.
The band has performed more than 100 live shows this past year and are quickly becoming known as one of the busiest country performers on the west coast of Canada.
They have had the opportunity to open for such artist’s as Sam Hunt, Thomas Rhett, Colt Ford and Nitty Gritty Dirt Band to name a few.
Their live show is fun, energetic and it will be hard to sit still during their live set.
Chris Buck Band didn’t always play and perform their own music. The band was formed when Chris Buck lost his best buddy to cancer at the age of 13. Music was a big inspiration and healing process for Chris.
“I decided to pursue music harder then ever at that time and began writing and playing guitar almost every day and started a cover band,” Buck says.
Playing in a cover band for more than eight years now has really helped them learn how to perform and eventually led them to become one of the busiest bands in B.C.
Their debut 2015 single, Leave Your Light On, was received very positively and hit Top 40 on Canadian Country Radio Billboards (BDS Charts). Their follow up single, Giddy Up, peaked at number 34 on Canadian Country Radio Charts, was Top 10 on iTunes (Country) for four weeks straight and their music video was added to CMT Canada.
The band has recently signed a management deal with Bailey Way Entertainment and the are excited to share their live show throughout Canada. For more information vist www.chrisbuckband.com.
