Welcome to the web site of.....
Bev Pegg and his Cowboy Band
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 consists 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 has a "squad" of top musicians who can
augment or dep with the band when necessary. All of these
great musicians know Bev's country repertoire inside out
therefore whoever is on the gig, the overall sound is
always precise and in Bev's own style. The band is usually
a six-piece, but to suit various budgets, can increase, or
reduce right down to a duo or solo performance.
"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 etc. 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.

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"///
