Ten Gallon Bratz began with songwriters Mark Dunsmore and Barrie Kelly in the early nineties. After amassing a substantial and ever-growing body of work they decided to form a band to showcase the songs. Ten Gallon Bratz exists in two forms, a three piece acoustic band and a full blown five piece band for those 'rockier' moments. To date, the band has produced a number of demo CDs. Their thirteen track acoustic CD entitled 'GHOST STORIES' has been a great success with demand for their new album 'CLOSE, BUT NO GUITAR' far outstripping supply. During 2005 and on more than one occasion, the acoustic band was given the opportunity to provide the support to ex-Squeeze front man Glenn Tilbrook. The guys have also provided entertaining supports to Irish singer songwriter Eleanor McEvoy during her Scottish Tour and to Canadian roots music trio The Cracker Cats when they recently played Greenock, Scotland. Ten Gallon Bratz music is broadly based in the Americana tradition where glorious three part harmonies are seamlessly combined with infectious hooks and intelligent lyrics. The band in general continues to increase it's fan base due to a growing reputation for memorable songs combined with entertaining live shows. To quote Eliza from the Cracker Cats, 'you guys kick a serious amount of butt!!'. Ten Gallon Bratz can be contacted by e-mail on: firstname.lastname@example.org.
