About Us

Chuck French and his son, C.J. French, are the core members The French Connection Band,  located in Knoxville, Tennessee.  We are a Father and Son group playing all of your favorite classic, alternative, and southern rock music.  We both play guitar, percussion, miscellaneous accompaniments, and perform vocals.We are also joined by Jessica Puckett on bass and vocals, and Peter Smith on drums and vocals, for our full band performances.

With a playlist covering over 200 well known songs, mixed with a handful of original music or interpreted cover versions, we offer a versatile mix of music that can be tailored for many different types of occasions.  From the Allman Brothers to ZZ Top, and everyone in between, we deliver the songs you want to hear, sing, and dance to.

We book out either as a two person gig, with bongos and small percussion for smaller engagements, or full drum kit for larger ones.  For larger engagements, we can round out to a four piece ensemble, adding a full time drummer/vocalist and a female bassist/vocalist. 

The French Connection Band has appeared most frequently at The Irish Times in Turkey Creek, The SkyBox at the Sunsphere, and at Willie's Bar and Grill at Choto Marina during summer days and evenings!  We have also performed at numerous private parties, including office events, birthdays, engagements, holidays, weddings, sporting events, tailgaters, or just plain old good time parties.

We are capable of providing all equipment, including PA, amplifiers, percussion, drum kit, etc.  We can also use your existing PA or other equipment.

Pricing depends on the gig, varying with size, equipment needs, number of band members, location and load-out needs, and duration.  Call or e-mail us today for prices or to book us for your event!!
