THE Chris Berry Band

WEDDINGS – PARTIES – BALLS – EVENTS - FESTIVALS - IN FACT ANY SPECIAL OCCASION!

The Chris Berry Band is all about making your party or special occasion even more special. The band plays songs from every era of pop and rock music with something for everyone.

Whether you’re looking for a band to play in your local pub or bar; for a wedding, anniversary or birthday; in a theatre, hall, tent or tepee; or at a festival The Chris Berry Band has played them all.

The line-up is made up of:

CHRIS BERRY

Front Man / Lead Vocals / Guitar

Chris has worked with national and international names such as Joe Longthorne and Midge Ure. He formed THE CHRIS BERRY BAND in December 2012 having previously run another very successful band for eight years. He also has successful solo career.

MICK CLARK

Drums / Percussion

Mick is one of the North of England’s leading drummers and has been with Chris in both THE CHRIS BERRY BAND and their previous band for the past decade. Watch out for his occasional drum solos! Mick was voted the Yorkshire Evening Post’s Sexiest Male in 1976!

DAVE DAYKIN

Lead Guitar

Dave joined THE CHRIS BERRY BAND in December 2013 after having played with a number of other bands in West Yorkshire. His lead guitar work and ear for the band’s sound make him stand out, as well as being 6ft 4 and looking like Sean Bean.

TIM FITCH

Bass Guitar / Vocals

Tim joined THE CHRIS BERRY BAND in September 2014 and walked straight into the role as though he’d been playing with the band for years! He also occasionally brings a further dimension to the band in the form of glamorous roadie when his daughter Zoe comes along!
