CHRIS WEAVER BAND PRESS
Chris Weaver and Jacob Bryant have released a new tune much to our listening pleasure! “Circus”, out now via American Roots Records / Thirty Tigers, is available everywhere.
Weaver has made a living for the past 20 years as a singer, performer, and songwriter. He has shared the stage with the biggest names in music, while also penning tunes with the most talented writers in the business. Throughout those years grinding and climbing his way through the ranks of the more talented musical minds in the country music community, Chris has aged and matured, and “Circus” is a reflection of the life musicians live while out on the road.
As is the case with any great songwriter, Weaver offers some literal analogies as well as metaphoric descriptions throughout the track, accompanying a stretch of catchy riffs and aggressive yet tamed musical energy.
For the past two decades, Chris has made a name for himself as an incredibly talented writer by intertwining elements of southern rock, blues, country and pop to create a sound all his own. “Circus” incorporates those attributes musically, which should certainly not overshadow the gifted voice delivery of both Weaver and Bryant throughout this track.
“We ride these rails cause we can’t be tamed Blame it on the whiskey, ball and chain
That’s the fuel in this fast lane And that’s just how it goes”
In a country music generation that is unfortunately defined largely on a mainstream level as predictable, vanilla, and unimaginative at times, talented songwriters like Chris Weaver constantly remind us how much talent there is in Music City (and beyond) as well as the potential for country music to continue to evolve. It is not a bad thing to incorporate elements of other musical brands into the one we love the most, and his ability to do so with the respect of each genre is unprecedented.
Fans can catch Chris and his band at select gigs throughout the winter and spring, including a special show on March 9 at The Listening Room in Nashville, which will also feature Bryant along with Craig Campbell.

“One of the most powerful and influential bands in Nashville!”
Ian Byars -Downtown Nashville Bar Operator
“In March 2014, The Chris Weaver Band played for our entire field team and they were nothing short of outstanding. Chris keeps the entire crowd engaged with almost everyone singing and dancing and just having a great time. We gave away signed CDs which just added to the successful night. Since then, we have had Chris play for my team at two smaller events of 50-100 people with both acoustic and with the band. We are bringing Chris and the full band to play for our largest team, yet, in San Diego March 2017. Always a professional, Chris ensures the sound is perfect and that his entire band is ready to perform at the highest levels.”
Kevin Middleton -Vice President Sales -Genzyme Corporation
“The Chris Weaver Band is simply awesome, with their authentic sounds and amazing range, they have audiences engaged, energized and entertained. we keep coming back for more and they deliver!”
Charlie Piscitello, Chief People Officer – Petco
It is not the fact that all the musicians in the Chris Weaver Band are world class that impressed me the most… And it’s not their ability to play any style of music either… It is the way that they engage as the audience in such a fun and unique way. These are the most talented bunch of musicians I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. I use them on all my corporate events all over the country. Whether opening for Earth Wind and Fire or a general session with 3000 people, the Chris Weaver Band does not disappoint.
David Fischette President, Go West Creative
“By far the best band I have ever worked with for events. Talented, passionate and will customize their songs and approach based on your company needs. Always my first choice when hiring talent for important events” –
Pete Krainik, Founder and CEO of The CMO Club.
I’ve worked with bands for over 25 years, and Chris and his guys are at the top of my list when it comes to professionalism, performance, and communication. When you’re producing an entire event the last thing you need is to worry about is your talent and confirming those last minute details. Chris and his team were in constant communication with us from the time we booked them and couldn’t have been better to work with. We have another event coming up this summer and they will absolutely be my first call when it’s time to book our entertainment!

“The Chris Weaver Band is absolutely amazing! They have played at my restaurant and private club numerous times and the guests are never disappointed. Personally, I have had the pleasure of seeing them perform at a special wedding in The Bahamas, and traveled with them to Brazil where they shined for over 100,000 fans! I am always impressed with their stage presence and musical talent! Whether you see them play in a downtown Nashville venue, or you hire them for a private event, The Chris Weaver Band is top notch!”
