Bev formed his Cowboy Band in 2008 following it has been received with considerable acclaim around the UK. Their 2009 CD release "Come Along Boys And Listen To My Tale" was the spotlight album of mid-October 2009 on UK Country Radio with tracks being played regularly on the station, and is proving a popular album with country fans.
Whilst Bev has made his name in the fields of rock 'n' roll, jazz, skiffle and comedy, he has always been a country music fan at heart. As a result, Bev has gathered some of the top country musicians around him to make up his new 6-piece band. All of these musicians are of the highest calibre and have played with and alongside many star country performers throughout the world.
"We don't plan to play much in the way of obscure country music, just good ol' songs that are known by everybody, such as songs of Hank Williams, Bob Wills, Johnny Cash and Bill Monroe to name a few. They're all played and sung in our own style, with plenty of good instrumental solos, and lots of laughs to go with them," says Bev.
Using a flexible squad of top country musicians, Bev also performs in a more acoustic style as Bev Pegg and his Good Time Bluegrass Band playing more traditional songs.
Like all of his other bands, Bev can play his own brand
of country music from a solo performance up to an eight
piece band if required. Guest artists such as Roy Parry
(bass & vocal), Hannah McCormack (vocal), Jim Merris
(harp & vocal) and Andy Wain (pedal steel & dobro)
augment the band from time to time.
