  • The Chris Weaver Band tours extensively throughout the year, and will be making an appearance at Wobbly Boots restaurant in Osage Beach on Feb. 28.
    Hear his blend of sourthern rock, soul and country blues when he takes the stage at 9 p.m.
    They are also scheduled to perform at Dog Days July 20.
    CWB's anticipated sophomore album, "American Dreamer," was recently released.
    Recorded in Nashville, Weaver teamed up with former Jimmy Buffett and Glenn Frey guitarist and legendary producer, Josh Leo (Alabama, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Bad Company, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Timothy B. Schmit) on American Dreamer.
    Notable contributors include Jack Pearson on slide guitar, Kim Carnes on background vocals, Tony Harrell on keyboards, Steve Mackey on bass and Tom Bukavac on guitar.
    Drawing from influences ranging from Tom Petty to Joe Cocker, American Dreamer features rootsy Americana, gospel, country, blues and rock.  Known for his working-man anthems, Weaver co-wrote all songs on the album.  
    From the emotive album opener "Gravy Train," soulful tracks "Raise The Dead" and "California High" to the breezy ballad "I Should Have Said That" and the Springsteen-esque "Time Has Wings," Weaver is a lyrical craftsman who's music is both riveting and unclassifiable.
    "It's been quite the journey to this point," said Weaver. "Standing In Line opened a lot of doors for me. American Dreamer is me."
    In addition to critical adoration, Nashville peers such as Blake Shelton and Lee Brice have vocalized support of their music.
    Looking ahead, Chris Weaver Band will be taking their signature energetic performances to venues throughout the country in support of "American Dreamer."
