Louisiana Funk with Texas Soul + Uniquely Arranged R&B Covers!

Live Music in Gainesville, TX | Walk-ins welcome!

Early in his music career, Chant played with a popular blues band called ‘Shame, Shame’. He left them to start his own band, but as the saying goes, “be careful what you wish for!” The next few years taught him some hard lessons, and he eventually had to put his own plans on hold. He spent a few years working, writing songs with friends, and touring as a backup musician for multiple acts.

In 2005, he decided to try his hand at starting another group with bass player Jerry Smith, Jr. They toured from coast-to-coast for over 10 years. Road life has its own challenges, so they decided to take a break from full-time touring in 2014.

After that, Chant went back to his acoustic roots, which led him to an amazing experience in Las Vegas playing on ’The Strip’ for a couple of years. It was something that he enjoyed, and he learned a lot but Las Vegas wasn’t for him in the long run. He returned to Dallas and began playing with Jerry Smith, Jr. who, sadly, passed sway in 2020.

As a solo artist, Duplantier’s smooth voice and crazy guitar work bring a unique flair to R&B standards from Otis Redding and Stevie Wonder to Hall and Oates and Steve Ray Vaughn.
