Johnny D & the Doo Wopps- Free Concert
Roanoke, Texas – Arts Council Northeast and the City of Roanoke are pleased to welcome Johnny D & the Doo Wopps for a concert on September 19, 2019, at the Austin Street Plaza Corner of Oak & Austin St.
Johnny D (John E. Dosher) has played in a variety of venues throughout Texas since the late ’70s. His career includes piano bars, symphony halls, stadium concerts and everything in between. Johnny 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. The “Johnny D and the Doo Wopps” band began when Rocky Walton, Bill Stetzer, and Tim Carman needed a band to perform for their tennis club in the early ’80s. A little at a time, the band grew and became more popular as they began playing for other special occasions. Their sets include music from the ’60s and ’70s, “soul music,” ‘70’s pop, and a little bit of “doo-wop.” They are a twelve-member band with a great horn section and tight vocal harmonies. Wherever they play, it is always fun.
Through the MasterWorks Series, Arts Council Northeast and the City of Roanoke present free performances on selected evenings throughout the year. The MasterWorks Series is designed to offer a variety of quality family entertainment to the community by utilizing the talent of local, regional, and national artists.
