D&D mix the love for both classic rock and country into one high energy package that has proved to be a force to be reckoned with on the Nor Cal Country Professional Band Circuit. They debuted late 2015 and hit the scene fronted by (Army Veteran) Bo Lawler "a guns blazin man" on a mission that was quick to pick up the nickname "Rock & Roll Cowboy."

In a very short time the band has clocked nearly 100 shows and even started to push into Nevada Casino's and shows no signs of slowing down as they gear up for their Summer 2017 " Black Smoke " Tour.  When asked the Rock & Roll Cowboy credits his success on the dedication and loyalty of his band members and says resembles the type of camaraderie shown by his military brothers. Check them out on Facebook and get out to a show!!!
