Western Fusion Band

Western Fusion was formed in the late 90’s by band leader Brian Childress. Brian’s goals were to have a band that sounded like radio and be composed of some of the best musicians Arizona has to offer.. In the beginning Western Fusion was a traditional country band. As the band evolved with musicians, so did the music. Today the standard five piece band still plays country including George Strait, Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, Keith Urban, Sam Hunt and now has recently evolved with hits from the 70’s, 80’s and today’s rock including a mix from MAGIC!, Sublime, Bruno Mars, Billy Idol, Def Leppard, and KC and the Sunshine Band. Western Fusion is known for having special guests like local female vocalist Mandy Mazon, Steel Guitarist John Rickard and Fiddle & Mandolin player Patrick Clark. With these additions Western Fusion adds hits from Charlie Daniels, Carrie Underwood, Pat Benatar, and Gretchen Wilson.

Western Fusion has been on the local scene for almost 24 years and has enjoyed playing various venues throughout the state. The band has opened for National Acts such as: Blake Shelton, Easton Corbin and Mark Wills. They were also the opening act for Charlie Daniels at Cliff Castle Casino. Western Fusion has also played the Tempe Block Party, events for the Town of Gilbert, Town of Camp Verde, Town of Chino Valley, City of Surprise, Phoenix International Raceway for the Nascar races, Coconino County Fair, Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino, Gila River Casinos, Apache Gold Casino and Fort McDowell Casino. The band has built up quite a fan base in recent years, selling their “Western Fusion” T-Shirts and Tank Tops at local shows.
