Chris Bevington hails from North Staffordshire and hit the Blues scene in 2014 with the release of their debut album “Chris Bevington & Friends.” The album topped the Blues Charts in the UK and the USA receiving fantastic reviews in both the Blues and Rock Community. During 2015 & 2016, the 9 piece band have toured up and down the UK and have gained a solid reputation for their live performances.
2016 brought the release of the second album “Better Start Cookin” which received BBC Radio 2 airplay by Paul Jones and charted in the UK Blues charts. The album features a number of star guests including: Robert Hart, George Glover and Rebecca Downes.
The Band have headlined in 2016 at Nantwich Blues Festival and many other Blues Festivals throughout the Country together with a performance at The Half Moon Putney, & The Robin 2 to name a few highlights for the year.
