Why The Clay Hills?

The Clay Hills Band is named for the "Badlands" near to our home base, in Caledon - like the Badlands, we are unique and uncommon, yet something unexpectedly cool.  Our musical sets are unique - from Shania and Blue Rodeo on the country spectrum, through Brian Setzer/Stray Cats, Beatles and Rolling Stones, to Black Keys covers, with some instrumentals for good measure! Our key ingredients are vocal harmonies, and variety.  We feature a lot of acoustic guitar in the mix, harmonica, keyboards and even a mandolin, with a large song repertoire, so we can pretty much tailor the music for any occasion, volume level or tempo

Venues & Locations


The CHB is based in the Caledon area, North of Brampton, Ontario, an
d we like to play gigs within a 50Km radius of Caledon - Brampton, Mississauga, Palgrave, Orangeville included.  We will consider other venues too, depending on circumstances.  We prefer to play private parties and functions, but we do play pubs and public events, if the venue and the vibe are right!
 

 
Equipment

We own all our own state-of-the art PA equipment, mixers, recording gear, and even a digital lighting system.  We can play venues from small campfire parties to large open-air events, with output levels ranging from 500 watts to 5,000 watts. We can configure as an acoustic soft rock/folk band for fine dining establishments or quieter environments, all-electric for noisy pubs and parties, or crank it up for medium open-air events through our 5,000 Watt RMS public address system with subwoofer. With a very varied repertoire, we can provide entertainment for a wide variety of events and venues.


History 

The Clay Hills Band, a.k.a. the CHB, started with backyard and campfire jams by Grant and Larry in and around the local Cheltenham neighbourhood in the 2002 timeframe. Phil joined soon after, and the trio added a drummer in 2004 to become the Hammers, which lasted until July 2010.  In the fall of 2010, the original three members decided to build a new band, recruiting Tim and Deb, and later Sally, to become the CHB. Dave joined the band in late summer, 2011, adding keys, lead guitar and harmonica to the band's sonic palette.  Sally left the band in early 2012, returning to live in South Africa. In early 2014, drummer Tim quit the band due to a heavy work schedule, and was replaced by Joe on drums, percussion and pans
