If you are looking for a band that will rock the house and leave the ashes smoking, than CWB is the perfect band for your event. Chris and his band have been burning down the highways, and have quickly developed a strong grassroots following since breaking into the college music scene in 2005. His live performances are energy filled with songs about living the life of a modern day troubadour. In the last year, Chris' own music has received airplay on Texas radio as well as in Europe and Australia. A coastal native of the northeast, and an Oklahoma State grad, Chris Winward had many diverse influences when he started crafting songs in college. His love for the ocean transpires through his writing, and his music has been described as a blend of country rock that is Americana and Texas flavored with a smooth, earthy finish. Whether you are looking for Southern Rock, Country or Classic Rock, these guys will deliver and leave any audience wanting more!

College Event

Hey Graham - The party was awesome. Everyone had an absolute blast. The Chris Winward Band was absolutely terrific. One of my friends who is getting married is going to be getting in touch with you to discuss getting them to play at her wedding! Chris is a very nice guy - so easy to work with (I'm kind of in love with him). Thanks so much for helping me out with this!

Sorority Event

Hi Graham,

Sorry for my delay in responding! Last night was definitely a success. The guys were very pleasant and easy about set up, enthusiastic during the performance, and played GREAT. I told Nellie we may want to even consider having them back at some point in the spring. Our group loved the country songs but they also played a bunch of regular songs too which were great. They played the whole night, even when only a few people were left. Everyone (girls especially!) loved these guys!

Thanks! and please let me know if I can give you any more specific feedback!

Chris and the Band were spectacular. The party was amazing despite somewhat deterrent weather. Everybody here really loved the band and we'd love to have them come back sometime next semester. They were also perfect for the theme, I spent probably 2-3 hours just dancing in the basement.

Graham, I was just about to send you a message. They were awesome, and our membership loved it! I honestly think we had the best act on the street. Chris and the rest of the band were super friendly and we had a great time hanging out with them after the show. 100% would recommend, and I hope to bring them back to Cloister some time. I'd say his forte is definitely country + rock and he was great at those songs. It was a pleasure to host them, and thank you so much for bringing the band to my attention! Best,
