Doo-Wah Riders News Update

BIG NEWS: 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

ROAD REPORT: We are currently in Pony, Montana for a day of rest and relaxation in the beautiful Tobacco Ridge! Wow!  Then we are heading out to Anaconda, Montana which marks the beginning of our Spring 2019 Performing Arts Center Tour. (Details are on our show page). We'll be cruising in the bus for a few weeks and we look forward to seeing the country once again. These PAC concert tours are a lot of fun and folks really love the music. The Doo-Wah Riders will return to SoCal with a gig at Stillwater on 4/17 and then The Lit Lounge at Fantasy Springs on April 18 out there in Indio. The ball starts rolling once again. Adios for now!

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!

Those Legendary Doo-Wah Riders!

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 and across the globe. 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 unique arrangements of classic and original songs have made them favorites everywhere they go.

This band has truly done it all for over 40 years and they continue to tour nationally, wowing audiences from New York City to Seattle and everywhere in-between. Check out the website and see for yourself!
