If you like Country Music mixed with a little Rock & Roll. Then you will love this band . Everywhere we play... the dance floor is always full of excited people having fun !! If you want to get your crowd dancing, then you need this band. While we are a country band , we're also known for performing some great rock & roll, southern rock, oldies, and even a blues song or two (all great dance music !) .
You really never know what we'll play next depending on the crowd. We mix up the music to offer something for other people who may not want to hear just country music. HOWEVER, if your show calls for all country music and nothing else,, Then we are more than willing to accommodate your request. We have professional equipment and over 5o years of music experience between us. No event is too big or too small. We just want to perform for people who enjoy great live entertainment. But we're also used to entertaining large crowds as we have hosted many major events over the past few years. If the people are not dancing and having a good time, then we are not doing our job plain and simple! This is the ultimate party band for any occasion.

About Rupert,

Recently received finalist honors in the (VH1- Save The Music) Song of The Year Songwriting Contest. The song is called "Don't You Love Me Anymore"!

Recorded two songs in Nashville, Tennessee for AMI Records. One of these songs called "Take Me Drunk" reached No. 10 on the country indie charts. It can be heard at www.rupertduncan.com on the music page .

I am very proud of the two originals " Country Song ( Its Got To Be Country)" & "Hugs And Kisses". These two songs were produced by "Mr. Ronnie Montrose", yes thats right, from the rock band "Montrose". Ronnie is the person who discovered " Sammy Hagar" ! Ronnie likes many types of music when it come from the heart as does this music !

Aside from our cover songs.... we also have some great originals that we throw into the mix. Its great when people come up and say " Who sings that song?" Thats When I just light up with a huge smile and say " We do" ! Our original music has a lot of rock flavor since we all grew up on rock & roll also. But thats what people love about us. We play just about anything to keep em' on the floor !

We just love to perform for people who love great professional live entertainment.

Just read this feedback listed below from people who have hired us to play numerous weddings and parties !

FEEDBACK FROM OUR PERFORMANCES !

The Rupert Duncan Band did a phenomenal job playing at my church fundraiser. Rupert was extremely pleasant and cooperative during our phone conversations. The band was on time for their set up and started playing on time. The Rupert Duncan Band went out of their way throughout the evening to be flexible with our schedule and played great music which helped make our event a big success. I highly recommend the Rupert Duncan Band to anyone who is looking for a top notch country band. -- Dave D, Carmichael, CA,

Great! We had so much fun and really enjoyed these guys! -- Tavia S, Pilot Hill, CA,

The Rupert Duncan Band was fantastic! Thanks for doing everything that you promised. Your musicianship was superb and the crowd had a wonderful time! -- Riki D, Woodside, CA,

Miles and Rose's wedding on Saturday night could not have been more perfect. The band was absolutely awesome and a perfect fit for our backyard! A year ago, when we met you, we told you that what we really were looking for was a band that would get people dancing. You definitely accomplished that and had both sides, including the Persians, all dancing! From the very first song, everyone was up and dancing until midnight when the sherriff shut us down. When I came out to tell Mles and Rose that their limo had arrived, they chose not to leave until the band stopped! I can't remember ever being to a wedding where so many people crowded the dance floor. You were easy to work with and great fun! When my three kids (later joined by Mark) got up to join you in their own rendition of "Friends in Low Places", you welcomed them and played along. We had so many people asking about your band and commenting on how talented and fun you all were! We truly couldn't have asked for more, and our other two kids have already said they want to hire you for their weddings!

Thank you so much for helping to make this evening so magical! Sue and Mark Jones-Sacramento, Ca

While searching for a band to play our wedding, we happened upon the Rupert Duncan band on Gigmasters. After seeing them at a local tavern, we were so impressed with their sound and the talent of the band's members that we decided to book them without listening to any other bands. The arrangements for our wedding were very easy to make,

Lyrics

Hugs And Kisses

Written By: Rupert Duncan


Verse 1
Man it’s hot that wind is blowing
Sand all over can barely see
I’m Dodging bullets whizzing by me
And wondering how this can be
I found some time to write this letter
To let you know I’m still alive
I’m doing fine but could be better
If I was home by your side
So give a message to my daughter
Daddy’s tough he’ll be alright
Say I’m always thinking of her
She’s the light of my life

Chorus
Give hugs and kisses to my baby
Hold her close and let her know
That she’s my special little lady
And I’ll be home to watch her grow

Verse 2
This foreign land it sure is lonely
There’s Many places rather be
And I know I’m not the only
Lonesome soul feels that way
It’s been five months since I’ve seen her
She’s on my mind all day long
And though I’m proud to serve my country
Gone this long just feels wrong

Chorus

Bridge
I know I’ve missed some precious moments
I know I’ve got some making up to do
Until I can hold that girl myself

Chorus (twice)

Tag
I’ll be home to watch her grow
I’ll be home to watch her grow

Hitting The Road

Written By: Rupert Duncan

Hitting The Road

Verse 1

Well Thats it I’ve had enough and I don’t want to fight no more
I’m packing up my stuff and I’m headed right for the door
Don’t Try to stop me
Don’t try to make me see
That you still love me
Because I know it’s a lie
I don’t love you
I think I kind of hate you
So now I’m Leaving
Without even saying goodbye

Chorus
Don’t call me
Don’t try to write
Don’t email me
Girl just leave me alone
You don’t know me
You had your chance with me
Now it’s all over
So now I’m hitting the road

Verse 2
Well there once was a time when I used to be in love with you
But then you hurt me tried to ruin me and made me blue
You think I’m a man of steel
But pain that you make me feel
Is strong enough to kill me
And drive a simple mind insane
It could have worked out
But it didn’t work out
So now I’m leaving
Without even saying goodbye

Repeat Chorus

Bridge
You say your sorry and you want me to stay
Come on now baby can't go on that way
You know I'm leaving so just let me go
We're no good together I know we'd be better if

Repeat Chorus

Don't You Love Me Anymore

Written By: Rupert Duncan

Don’t You Love me Anymore

Verse 1
Hello girl
It’s been a while since we talked to each other
Are you still single
Please tell me there’s no other
I think about you every day
And I want you more and more each day
I sure miss you and by the way
Don’t you love me anymore

Chorus
Do you still care
Do you miss me at all
If I were there
Would you hold me in your arms
Or if I died
Would it matter to you
Don’t you love me anymore
I never did stop loving you

Verse 2
You don’t return my calls
When I leave a message on your machine
Are you through wasting time
On a dreamer like me
Or is there a man
That has taken my place
Tell me is there a chance
For us to light up that old flame

Repeat chorus

Don’t you love me anymore
I never did stop loving you

Written By: Rupert Duncan

Verse

I'm the happiest boy in the world
because I just met the worlds most beautiful girl
she took my breath away , she stole my heart
hey now thats ok I'm off to a brand new start
all the lonliness I felt before
I don't feel it no more

Is this love or infatuation
I'm not too sure but I like the situation
something about it just feels so right
and I can't wait to see her tonight

Verse
I've been down some dead end roads
I've wasted time with some I wish I never did know
this new feeling down deep in my soul
its got me jumping like a hound dog for a milk bone
never knew sweet chemistry
between this kind of beauty and me

Is this love or infatuation
I'm not too sure but I like the situation
something about it just feels so right

Lucky Star

Written By: Rupert Duncan

Lucky Star

Verse 1

You should be an actress
Cause you pretend so good
I bet you would be a big success
Down in Hollywood
You had me convinced
That I was someone special to you
Maybe you studied a script
For your motion picture debut

Chorus

Lucky star
Fell out of my sky
You broke my heart
And left me here to die
What I thought was love
Was like a work or art
You deserve an award for how you broke my heart

Verse 2

You had me believing
That we were two of a kind
That we were the perfect union
Like candle light and wine
You used me to grow and glow
And now I don’t know where you shine
Just like some old picture show
That you had you had to glorify

Repeat chorus

Bridge

Where did you go and are you coming back
I love you baby and that’s a fact
This country boy won’t do you no harm
I just want to hold you in my arms

Repeat chorus

Rest In Peace

Written By: Rupert Duncan

Rest In Peace

verse
There’s a man
Who’s getting out of prison
On April twenty first
And I will be waiting for him
I’ve got something for him
That he deserves
I’ve been waiting
For quite some time now
To see just about how loud
That boy can scream

Chorus
I’m gonna take away
All his troubles that day
All his problems
Will be no more
At first he’ll
Cry some tears
And beg for mercy in fear
It’ll all be over with ease
And he can rest in peace

Verse
This same man he
Did the very same thing for my daddy
Took all his troubles away
Now its time for me to show him some thanks
I will gladly pay him back
With a little bit of interest in fact
Then I’ll sleep better at night
Knowing all debts are paid

Chorus
I’m gonna take away
All his troubles that day
All his problems
Will be no more
At first he’ll
Cry some tears
And beg for mercy in fear
It’ll all be over with ease
And he can rest in peace

Please Don't Cry

Written By: Rupert Duncan

Please Don’t Cry

Verse 1
Dad could only visit me
Two times every month
That’s how the judge said it should be
Since divorce was said and done
And it was time for him to leave
And he turned to look at me
As a tear rolled down my face
He looked at me to say

Chorus

Please don’t cry
This ain’t goodbye
I’m going away
But I’ll be back someday
You know I’m gonna miss you
And I hope you miss me too
But please don’t cry
This ain’t goodbye

Verse 2

Some say nothing last forever
And all good things must end
But someday we’ll be together
And we’ll share our love again
Though he passed away last year
And I am still so sad
I sit here fighting back the tears
I remember what he said

Repeat chorus

Tag

Please don’t dry
This ain’t goodbye
