The Hoedown Band plays a range of classic country rock, country and new country songs. We have many years experience in providing music for a wide range of corporate and private functions. The song set covers classic songs like Jambalaya (Hank Williams) and Folsom Prison Blues (Johnny Cash), through the country rock of bands like the Eagles to new country from the Dixie Chicks, Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood and many more. We specialise in up-beat country music that appeals to a wider audience, with many sing-a-long favourites in our set list.
Our singer Dawn also has a repertoire of line ... and barn dances which are ideal for audiences who've never had the opportunity to take part in this highly enjoyable form of social dance. Dawn's bubbly personality and her technique of demonstrating the dances from the dance floor means that everyone wants to get involved in the fun.
We can supply a four piece band including a female vocalist / caller, guitarist / vocalist, bass guitar and drums. The band is fully self-contained, by this we mean that we provide all the equipment that we need to perform. All you need to provide is a space for us to play and at least two safe power sockets. We are fully insured and the equipment has regular safety checks.
We can customise the format and duration of the performance to suit your event but we tend to be asked for two 45 to 90 minute sets. We mix and match the concert material with the hoedown and line dancing to give a balanced programme of entertainment for you and your guests. We can also play appropriate recorded music through the PA system during any breaks either from our library of country tracks or from an iPOD supplied by you.

The Hoedown Band is one of the busiest Country/ Hoedown / Barn and Line Dance bands in the world. Based on the mid north coast of NSW, we regularly perform at Weddings, Birthday Parties, Corporate Events, Conferences, Product Launches, University Balls and Charity events as well as Festivals and Public Dances. As well as playing all over Australia and the UK, we have toured Spain's Costa Blanca and even performed at the Fairbridge Festival in Western Australia. Corporate clients have included Molly Maid, Birdseye, Vet's Now, Herbalife, Sega and various military bases.
We are one of the few ... bands around that can supply a full country hoedown and line dance experience. We play a range of classic country rock, country and new country songs and instrumentals as well as playing hoedown / barn dance and country style line dances. We have many years experience in providing music for a wide range of corporate and private functions and will help ensure that your client's special event runs smoothly and that everyone has a good time. You can read some comments from satisfied customers on our website as well as hear sound clips and see photographs of the band in action.
The song set covers a wide range of material from classics like Jambalaya and Folsom Prison Blues, through the country rock from bands like the Eagles to new country from the likes of the Dixie Chicks, Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood.
If dancing is more your cup of coffee, then we do a mix of traditional Hoedown material, common American dances and line dance as requested. We cover all the main bases of square and traditional American Dances such as the Virginia Reel and can add in line dances and mix in country songs suitable for free form dancing.
We find that our approach to calling, and the mix of dances is ideal for audiences who may be not be familiar with hoedown or line dancing, or indeed any kind of dancing at all. We have been successfully playing at American theme'd events, country music clubs and to American ex-pats for a number of years and have often had return bookings so I guess we must be doing something right.

Originally hailing from the UK, our vivacious lead vocalist can really bring out the 'heart & soul' of the music.

The sound of Anglo-Australian country artists - Dawn Moore and Brian Heywood - combines the storytelling of traditional country and the power of edgy roots rock instrumentation - a sound that is a tight amalgam of raunchy guitar driven roots music and rich vocal harmonies that bridges the gap between country and rock. The duo's songwriting and performances also bring a fresh approach to the 'Country Scene' which appeals to a wider audience. The album features the members of their regular backing band (Hoedown Band) along with guest players from the UK and Australia.$20 (+$5 P&P)
