For over 30 years, the Doo-Wah Riders have entertained with their unique, original sound — high energy country with a Cajun twist. Their tight musicianship and powerful arrangements of classic, contemporary and original songs have made them favorites everywhere they go. The Doo-Wah Riders have appeared in concert with the best country musicians of the day, in addition to serving as a backup band for many other groups. They have entertained at the Grammys and the Academy of Country Music Awards. The Doo-Wah Riders band features Kenny Lee Benson on keyboards/accordion/harmonica/vocals, Lindy Rasmusson on guitar/vocals, Aaron Castilla on fiddle/vocals, Freddie Johnson on bass/vocals and Peter Kaye on drums. The presenter website is doowahriders.com

Both season and single ticket sales will be available at the door prior to the concerts and are also available for purchase at hannibalconcerts.com. Season tickets (which include admission to all five performances) are available for individuals ($50) and couple/parents w/children ($100). Season ticket holders essentially pay only $10 per concert. HCA season ticket holders also benefit from free/discounted admission to all performances of the Keokuk Concert Association and Quincy Civic Music Association.
