Dillon Fence was an American rock band in the mid 1980s to 1995. They have been described as "a key band in the tres chic Chapel Hill, North Carolina, scene".

The band released three full-length albums (Rosemary, Outside In and Living Room Scene) and two CD singles on Mammoth Records. They also released an EP "Dillon Fence" on their own label, Nocar. In 2004, MoRisen released their greatest hits CD, which included an EP of new material.

Singer/songwriter Greg Humphreys' songs have been covered by bands like Hootie and the Blowfish, who used to open for them, and Letters to Cleo. The band was also made up of drummer Scott Carle, guitarist Kent Alpin and bassist Chris Goode. Trent Pitts played drums on the original EP.

In December, 2000 they regrouped for a 3-date tour and recorded a double-CD album Live at the Cat's Cradle. They also did summer reunion tours in 2004 and 2005 to support the greatest hits album.
