The Latest Jeff Gallant Band News

  • CHANGES FOR THE EVER POPULAR JEFF GALLANT BAND
SINCE THE LAST UPDATE OF THIS LATEST NEWS SECTION OF THE WEBSITE, WHICH WAS IN EARLY IN 2016 THERE HAVE BEEN A FEW UPDATES AND CHANGES TO THE JEFF GALLANT BAND.
(sorry it's been so long, but Jeff and his girlfriend Vanessa are now running the site so it should be updated on a more regular basis from now on)
IF YOU'VE SEEN US AROUND YOUR AREA SINCE THAT TIME YOU'LL ALREADY KNOW,  BUT IF NOT YOU WILL SEE THE BAND HAS INCREASED ITS WORKLOAD AND SMARTENED UP THE IMAGE AND REPLACED A FEW MEMBERS IN THE ACT.

FIRSTLY OUR BASS MAN, BIG DAVE WATSON LEFT THE ACT IN EARLY 2017 AND THE FABULOUS CLIVE GRANT STEPPED IN TO JOIN THE ACT TO BRING HIS QUALITY BASSLINES AND SUPERB HUMOUR TO THE BAND AND AROUND THE SAME TIME DICK HEWITT LONG SERVING DRUMMER WITH THE ACT DECIDED TO RETIRE FROM THE BAND, AS THE EVER GROWING SCHEDULE BECAME MORE OF A BURDEN, AND SO WE ALSO WELCOMED MATTY BAKER INTO THE BAND IN 2017 ASWELL. MATTY IS A  SUPERB DRUMMER AND HAS BEEN A WELCOMED AND WONDERFUL ADDITION TO THE BAND.
(Both Matty and Clive also play with Nashville Numbers and try hard to work with thier schedules around both bands)
MORE RECENTLY THE BAND SAW THE DEPARTURE OF RAY PHILLIPS FROM THE ACT AFTER HE DECIDED THE TIME WAS RIGHT FOR HIM TO MOVE ONTO OTHER THINGS AND JEFF IS CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR A FULL TIME REPLACEMENT FOR THE STEEL GUITAR/ LEAD GUITAR POSITION, HOWEVER THANKS TO MEETING MANY FRIENDS OVER THE YEARS JEFF IS HAPPY TO HAVE FILLED ALL BOOKINGS WITH TOP QUALITY DEPS SO THAT NO BOOKINGS WILL NEED TO BE CANCELLED AND NEW BOOKINGS CAN STILL BE TAKEN WITHOUT ANY CONCERN.

JEFF IS CURRENTLY IN TALKS WITH SOME PLAYERS WHICH WILL HOPEFULLY BE SUITABLE TO FILL THE POSITION, BUT IS OPEN TO MORE APPLICATIONS IF ANYONE WOULD LIKE TO PUT THEMSELVES FORWARD FOR CONSIDERATION. JUST EMAIL JEFF AT jeffgallantband@aol.com AND HE WILL GET IN TOUCH TO DISCUSS THINGS FURTHER WITH YOU.
THE BAND PRIDE THEMSELVES ON THEIR SMART IMAGE AND QUALITY COUNTRY MUSIC SO IF YOU FEEL THIS IS RIGHT FOR YOU THEN GET IN TOUCH. :-)

ALSO SINCE RAYS DEPARTURE CLIVE GRANT HAS STEPPED IN TO THE DUO, ALONGSIDE JEFF, PLAYING LEAD GUITAR AND THE DUO IS SOUNDING SUPERB WITH CLIVE ADDING HIS VOCALS AND GUITAR STYLES TO THE TRACKS TOO.

SO A LOT OF THINGS HAVE CHANGED BUT THE ONE THING THAT HASN'T AND WON'T IS THE JEFF GALLANT BAND GIVING GOOD QUALITY STRONG COUNTRY PERFORMANCES EVERYWHERE THEY GO!!
COME AND CHECK THEM OUT SOON AND ENJOY YOURSELVES WITH THE JEFF GALLANT BAND.
