Rockabilly with the El Dorados

Posted September 25, 2013 in Community Featured, Beaverdale

Des Moines band The El Dorados, who play traditional style American roots music, will be at the Franklin Avenue Library on Saturday, Oct. 5 at 3 p.m. for a program of rockabilly tunes.

The band was formed in the summer of 2008 by guitarist/singer Jason Boggs and bassist/guitarist Jeff Baker, two like-minded musicians who wanted to play songs that make audiences happy and encourage them to get up and dance. Jason and Jeff will be joined for this performance by Bob Tyler on upright bass and vocals, and Dirk Newton on drums and vocals.
