Doo-Wah Riders

The Legendary Doo-Wah Riders are celebrating their 40th Anniversary!

Since 1978 there has been no one else like the Doo-Wah Riders. For over 40 years they have been riding their own patch of the musical range throughout the west. They possess the rare combination of many years of experience and youthful energy, fired up by a love for what they do. The Doo-Wahs are country, with a unique, original sound. Defined by their sound... "high energy country with a cajun twist", the Doo-Wah Riders' ultra-tight musicianship and powerful arrangements of classic and original songs have made them favorites everywhere they go.

This legendary band loves honky tonks as well as concert stages and prides itself in catering to each audience with a spicy personal touch.

Fun Fact: Did you know that the Doo-Wah Riders played at our very first Concerts in the Park?! They are back again this year to celebrate their band's 40th anniversary as well as the Concerts in the Park's 40th anniversary!
