Gareth Nugent was born and raised in Dublin. No matter where you go in Ireland music is around every corner all styles all genres. Having gone to Mount Temple, U2’s secondary school it was only a matter of time before Gareth followed his dream of performing and writing music. In 1997 he moved to London where he played in bars and clubs.
His first break came when he landed a role in “Elvis The Musical”. Within 3 weeks he took over the lead from PJ Proby as Elvis.
After an 18 month run at the Prince of Wales Theatre and Piccadilly Theatre in the West End, Gareth turned his attention to performing his own style of Country Music. His influences range from John Denver, Neil Diamond, Garth Brooks, The Eagles and Keith Urban to name a few.
Having played solo gigs he started looking for a band. Joining the ranks. Sean Queenan on Bass and BVs, on Drums and BVs, Phillip (Pet) Tetlow and last but not least Guitarists Cris Pochesci and Lorenzo Passarella.
Gareth and the boys have been busy for the last 18 months rehearsing, recording and playing live. This September the long awaited album “Quarter Mile” will be released.
