Johnny D and the Doo Wops
Saturday, June 8, 2019

Johnny D (John E. Dosher) grew up in Louisiana and began his professional career on Bourbon Street at the age of fifteen. Before settling in Texas, Johnny traveled extensively with numerous rock, jazz and country groups. Johnny D and the Doo Wopps began when Rocky Walton, Bill Stetzer and Tim Carman needed a band to perform for their tennis club in the early ’80s. Their sets include music from the ’60s and ’70s, soul music and a little bit of doo-wop. With a killer horn section and tight vocal harmonies, this twelve-member band always puts on a great show.

The Vinyl Stripes
Saturday, July 27, 2019
7 – 8:30 p.m. @ Aria Amphitheater

Rockabilly, rock and roll, drive-ins, car hops, early Elvis and Sun Records—it’s easy to see how the classic sights and sounds of the ’50s and ’60s have influenced Texas-based band The Vinyl Stripes! With their skinny ties, Gretsch guitars and slappin’ standup bass, The Vinyl Stripes perform hits from era icons including Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, the Beatles, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly and many more. You’ll also fall in love with their new original songs that sound just like they were written in those long-ago rocking days.

Southlake Community Band
