Doo-Wah Riders News Update
After 40 years, Lindy Rasmussen has decided to retire from the Doo-Wah Riders. Looking back, it has been an amazing ride and we are both very proud of all we accomplished together. He is leaving on the best of terms and we all wish him much success in the future. As for me, I have more songs to write and a couple of places I haven’t played yet. We would like to take this opportunity to welcome our longtime friend and blazing guitarist Al Bonhomme to the band. We are very confident that Al will make a big contribution to both the Doo-Wah Riders and Crawdaddio! The Doo-Wahs have a busy year ahead and we look forward to seeing all of you in 2019! - Kenny Lee Benson

Well then, say hello to our wicked-great 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, and for five years they headlined Disney’s Mardis Gras Celebration at Pleasure Island in Orlando, Florida. Crawdaddio performs monthly at Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen at Downtown Disney, as well as at festivals and fairs across the country!
