The Dean Eggleston Band
The Dean Eggleston Band is an alternative rock band from Christchurch, New Zealand.

Peter Malthus - bass/ b. vocals (prev. in The Valves ad PistolGrip)
Simon Nunn - drums/b. vocals (prev in The Undercurrents and Weaponized)
Jesse Bruce - lead guitar (prev in Cinderella Rocketship)
Beginning with singer and songwriter Dean Eggleston looking for an outlet for his songs, The Dean Eggleston Band began from jam nights with the other members.
Weekly jam sessions at The Club Tavern and A Rolling Stone got the band knowing the songs and this lead to their first gig at the Dark Room. Further gigs have followed others at A Rolling Stone with other local bands and twice at the Embankment, once opening for Auckland Band Hangar 18 on their Asian and Australasian Tour.
The songs are based around Dean's acoustic guitar and could easily fit in with songs by Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, Lynard Skynard, Neil Young etc. Songs include the beautiful "City Lights", the atmospheric "Pretty Good" to songs that could rock any stadium, "Night Train", "Take Me Home", and "This Country".
