Bev Pegg and his Cowboy Band

From 2020 onwards Bev made the decision to bring to an end his Cowboy Band 's activities.

Bev formed his Cowboy Band in 2008 since when it was 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. Later country style albums are listed on the CDs page of this website plus music magazine reviews.

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. Bev's regular band consisted of Pete Hartley - violin / mandolin, Maurice Hipkiss - pedal steel guitar / violin / dobro, Roy Parry - bass / vocal, Ken Wright - drums / vocal, Pete Boddis - guitar / vocal. However, Bev always had a "squad" of top musicians who augmented or depped with the band when necessary. All of these great musicians knew Bev's country repertoire inside out therefore whoever was on the gig, the overall sound was always precise and in Bev's own style. The band was usually a six-piece, but to suit various budgets, it increased, or reduced right down to a duo or solo performance.

"We didn't 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 etc. They were 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 performed in a more acoustic style as  Bev Pegg and his Good Time Bluegrass Band playing more traditional songs.

  Bev's Cowboy album "Come Along Boys An' Listen To My Tale" was reviewed in the January 2010 issue of "Maverick" magazine. The full review is on the CDs page of the website. "Maverick" summarised the album as follows: "Harking back to the great days of country music by including some fine covers with many surpassing the originals. An awesome album to say the least, performed by a band who are simply just outstanding"///

There are also additional videos on YouTube outlining Bev's recollections over the years in both music and also comedy. The Jazz Recollections are listed on the Jazz Page of this Website, whereas the other one of an interview by "Creative Black Country" can be found by typing into the YouTube search box "Bev Pegg - Finding Our Funny Roots Interview"
