Introducing Grand Prairie Band

Grand Prairie has been a functioning London based country rock band since 1985, formed largely by session players from the early 1970’s. It is centred around vocalist Jenny Ormonde (accordion, harmonica & flute) and her partner Rob Wilson (bass, vocals), Mick O’Donnell (guitar, vocals), Peter Terry (keyboards), Dave Haywood (pedal steel) and Ian Ryan ( drums). Although the band are predominantly a stand alone act, they have also been used to back other performers including George Melly, Westlife’s Brian McFadden and Charley Pride ( in the USA). Grand Prairie have made almost 30 trips to the USA and have performed on bills with the likes of Alabama, Clint Black, Trace Atkins & Diana Ross. The band have performed coast to coast in the USA from California including Monterey, San Diego, Arizona, Vegas, to name a few. They play to return in the future. At the end of 2019, the group performed with Spandau Ballet’s Tony Hadley. 2015 The U.K. Country Radio “Group of the Year Award. Time pressure restricts the recording activities of the band but the two albums “Midnight Special” and “This Ain’t Reno” have been well received.
