Some exciting news folks! Right after a gig on Downtown Disney's ESPN Zone stage on March 14, The Doo-Wah Riders will once again rock the stage of The Ranch in Anaheim on March 21st. It's been a while since we've performed there and we are eager to once again play music at that awesome venue. Then it's Swallows Day at The El Adobe in San Juan Capistrano on March 24. This event is off the hook and we anticipate massive crowds as usual. The month of April is shaping up nicely as well, and the fair season approaches quickly. We will perform at The Yuma County Fair April 6-8 then head south to The Poteet Strawberry Festival in Poteet, TX. from April 13-15. It's always a lot of fun down in George Strait territory! Right after that we'll drive the bus back up to The Hon-Dah Casino in beautiful Pinetop, AZ. and play the week of April 17-21.
On April 29 we'll fly out to Hershey, PA. for their concert series at Hershey Park. This is always a treat in more ways than one. If you like Hershey bars then this is the town for you! Sweet! We have some in-town gigs as well so check out our calendar of events by clicking here...
Please check out our tour schedule and join us sometime. And remember, enjoy the ride with the Legendary Doo-Wah Riders, now celebrating our 40th Anniversary.

We'd love to see you at our next performance.

Swallows Day at The El Adobe!
Meet our alter-ego 'Crawdaddio'!!
Every night is Mardis Gras when Crawdaddio is in town! Since 1978, this band brings the spirit and rhythm of the bayou to life with their driving zydeco beat. Crawdaddio has performed at festivals, clubs, and corporate events all over the country. For five years they headlined Disney’s Mardis Gras Celebration at Pleasure Island in Orlando, Florida. The band performs monthly at Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen and on the Main Stage at Downtown Disney, Anaheim, CA. Crawdaddio was recently featured at the Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Festival in 2017.
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 band loves honky tonks as well as concert stages and prides itself in catering to each audience with a warm personal touch.

Jammin' with Jeff Cook!
We recently played the weekend out in Laughlin, NV and had a super fun time at the Down Home Country Festival. Special thanks to all of the kind folks who hosted the event and all who attended. We can't seem to go anywhere without running into someone we know and this trip was no exception. It just so happens that super group Alabama was headlining at the Edgewater Casino nextdoor on Saturday night. Our good friend (original Alabama guitarist/singer) Jeff Cook was in town for the gig and he stopped by to play with The Doo-Wahs for a set before his show. What a blast!
'Ya Never Know On The Road' Dept.
Surprise! Our good friends Shadow (our Diesel Guru) and Bonnie Seaman from Twin Falls, and CJ and OZ from Las Vegas popped in for one of our shows at the Colorado Belle in Laughlin. A great way to top off a great weekend at the ‘Down Home Country Festival’!
