Bigford and his band — lead guitarist Simon Goban Smith, bassist Doug Burns and drummer Doug Freedman — play traditional and current country favorites. Bigford tosses in diverse songs ranging from Red Elvises tunes to Prince’s “Kiss,” but with a bit of his own twang. The first Thursday of every month, at least through August, the Bigford band hosts Country Music Night at Club Fox. “If we get good crowds in there, we’ll keep it going. We might even do it twice a month. I love that venue. It is so ideal for what we’re doing. It’s got a big dance floor for the line dancers. The sound is always good. And then it’s a showroom. We can come out and do a real nice show in there.”.

They perform at private parties and have a lot of one-nighters coming up this summer. They’re putting together material for a new album. Bigford says, “We want to take this to the next level, playing festivals and rodeos and county fairs. I love doing that kind of stuff. Maybe being an opening act on some big shows would be a nice bonus, too. “We just like to make music that makes people happy. I get emotional, when I sing, whether it’s a ballad or a happy song. And I love being able to share that with people. They connect with it. ….

“My dad passed away 30 years ago, And every time I play, I think about him, When I was growing up, we would sit up for hours and listen to the Grand Ole Opry, He’d sing songs and I would play guitar, He was my greatest inspiration, And he’s still a part of me, “It’s been a long road, but I’m ballet shoes purple wall art - art - printable watercolor - modern minimalist poster - printable sign - digital print going to keep playing music until I can no longer play, This is what I’ve always loved to do.”, Email Paul Freeman at, Who: The Chris Bigford Band, Country Music Night..
