Meet the Band
THE BILL FOX BAND combines tight harmonies and exciting instrumental arrangements that set off a mix of both standard and obscure tunes from various genres, along with a healthy dose of originals that will knock your socks off! Although they've only been together since the Spring of '97, the Bill Fox Band's hard-working professional attitude has already earned them gigs opening for national country act Michael Peterson, post-performing at the MCI Center's Reba McEntire/Brooks & Dunn Concert, and for the third year in a row entertaining at the Bluemont Fair in Bluemont, VA. You can also see this dynamic group performing regularly at clubs and restaurants in the tri-state area, including Mosby's Tavern and Magpies in Middleburg, VA, Coalie Harry's in Winchester, VA, the Battletown Inn in Berryville, VA, and the Charles Washington Inn in Charlestown, WV.

Bill's Kentucky roots run deep and the Appalachian influence is evident in his straightforward style of songwriting that gets right to the heart of the matter and touches something inside all who hear it. From his soulful ballads to the hard driving bluegrass and rockabilly kickers, Bill Fox's songs will find their way into your head and you'll find yourself humming one of his tunes when you least expect it.
Two of Bill's songs, Lovin' Money Back Guarantee and No Regrets, recently won second and eighth place in the Fourteenth Annual Mid-Atlantic Songwriter's Contest.

Eric's approach to playing is to blend the sound of his guitar and banjo styles so that it is sometimes difficult to tell which one he is playing unless you see him. Eric studied music briefly at the College of William and Mary, and in the mid-seventies began playing wtih local area bluegrass bands such as Rush River, Mountain Light, and The American Bluegrass Band. Eric has also performed with such legends as Muddy Waters, Jimmy Martin, and Ben Eldridge.
Dave was born in Baltimore Md. before Hee Haw first aired and was influenced at an early age by his dad's taste in music, (country), Hank Williams Sr., Jim Reeves, Charlie Pride, and the likes. Later on, the Beatles and the British invasion took him into Rock music which he persued for quite a few years. He played mostly on the local Baltimore circuit until the early 80's when he decided to join the real world and get a real job. Having had enough of that, he's here ready to tickle your ear and get that foot a tappin'.
