The Houston Bernard Band is a must see! Houston has assembled a group of musicians that bring vitality and grit to a stable of modern and classic country music. Their brand of original country music is fresh and hard hitting. Whether pleasing crowds with a "sing at the top of your lungs" country anthem, or delving into sophisticated improvisational state of the art honky-tonk pickin', this band will leave everyone in the room with a smile and a feeling of "Oh my goodness! Did that just happen!?" A guarantee to turn any event into a genuine boot scootin' hoe-down

The band has seen regional success performing in a variety of contexts including colleges, theaters, festivals, amphitheater and all of New England's most revered country nightclubs. They have shared the stage with Jake Owen, Eli Young Band, Josh Thompson, Scotty McCreery, and Pure Prairie League among many others. They have re-imagined modern country with a new philosophy; country music is better raw than fried.


Houston Bernard BIO

His uncle and father were known as the Rebel Brothers and were a staple in the Nashville and OKC country music scenes in the 1970s. They played back-up for artists such as Tanya Tucker, Dave Dudley, Wanda Jackson and Sleepy LaBeef, regularly crossing paths and swapping stories with the likes of Elvis Presley, Merle Haggard, Kiss and Willie Nelson. Johnny Bernard (uncle) has written songs for many country artists in Nashville including Reba McEntire.

Houston's Great Grandfather was the famous gunfighter George 'Bittercreek' Newcomb, a famous outlaw (captured in the Time-Life 'Gunfighters' book) who ran with the Dalton, James and Doolan gangs and a was Most Wanted man in the 1890s. It's this outlaw spirit that Houston carries with him to every show.

After years of shopping mall and state fair performances, Houston moved to New York when he was 20 and began developing his own look, sound, and aesthetic. Diving deep into the city's underground, he championed human rights, free speech, and insouciant sexuality over grinding electro/hip-hop/rock beats. Houston's solo (and self-booked) world tour kept him busy from 2003 through 2007.

His videos were broadcast all over the world by MTV, LOGO, and other stations. He was featured in magazines and documentaries with artists like the Beastie Boys, Terry Richardson, Nancy Sinatra, Scissor Sisters, Cyndi Lauper, Lady Gaga, and Peaches.

Now, Houston is drawing musical inspiration from his family's rockabilly roots, without sacrificing any of the artistic integrity that made him so well-loved in the first place. Leave it to Houston Bernard, a rebel with outlaw ancestry, to break further boundaries. And have a great time doing it.

Our party was small (45). we all had a wonderful time and would hire them again in the future. They all were appreciative of the food and drink available to them and respectful of both my wife and myself. They were a real class act!!

Houston, of the Houston Bernard band was a pleasure to work with for the annual fundriasing event for Ironstone Farm in Andover, MA. From our very first contact to the finale of our event, they were professional, accomadating and uderstanding of our needs. They exceeded our expectations. They had a request of a 20 by 20 space, and we ran out of space and were not able to accomodate that one request, however, they handled it quite professionally. Their line dancing instructor was very knowledgable and great with getting our crowd out there on our dance floor. I highly reccomend them to anyone. Great energy and very talented group of musicians.
