The CHRIS BARTON Band is a 4-piece band comprising Keyboards & Vocals, Guitar & Vocals, Saxophone & Drums.
At weddings and private parties we play for dancing.
The band members are Simon Eyre, Tony Kiley, John Telfer & Chris Barton.
Simon Eyre (Guitar & Vocals) has toured with Elaine Paige, Paul Weller & The Style Council (World Tour), Womack and Womack, Jimmy Ruffin & Matt Bianco, and recorded with Ed Sheeran, Robert Palmer, Olivia Newton John, Agnetha (from Abba), Chaka Khan, Sister Sledge, Anita Baker, ABC, Five Star, The Christians, Mary J. Blige, Errol Brown and The Lighthouse Family (Simon played guitars on the Ocean Drive album), and Top Of The Pops with Randy Crawford.
Tony Kiley (Drums) has had a successful career as member of chart band The Blow Monkeys and as drummer with Chris de Burgh. He has a long list of recording and live credits with other chart acts, including Alison Moyet.
John Telfer (Saxophone) has recorded with Super Furry Animals & St Etienne.
Chris Barton (Keyboards & Vocals) went to the Royal College of Music and has worked with Shirley Bassey (album), and played on various chart singles. Chris comes from a musical family...his uncle, singer/guitarist Ken Barton played with trad jazz star Monty Sunshine, and Chris' grandfather ran his own successful dance band in the 1920's to 40's.
Our band has a unique blend of excitement and professionalism. We have played for dancing at all kinds of private parties & wedding receptions all over the UK and also abroad. We really do know how to give an audience a fantastic time.
