Johnny D & the Doo Wopps: Evenings on Oak Street Concert Series

Thursday, August 10, 2017


Johnny D (John E. Dosher) has played in a variety of venues throughout Texas since the late 70’s. 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 ‘80’s. 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 ‘60’s and ‘70’s, “soul music,” ‘70’s pop, and a little bit of “doo-wopp.” They are a twelve-member band with a great horn section and tight vocal harmonies. Wherever they play, it is always fun!
