Arts Council Northeast and the City of Roanoke are pleased to welcome Johnny D & the Doo Wopps for a free concert on August 10, 2017, at Austin Street Plaza - Corner of Oak & Austin St


Johnny D (John E. Dosher) has been playing in a variety of venues in Texas since the late 70’s. His career includes piano bars, symphony halls, stadium concerts, and everything in between.

He grew up in Louisiana and began his professional career on Bourbon Street at the age of 15. Before settling in Texas, Johnny traveled extensively with a 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 mostly from the ‘60’s and ‘70’s and include “soul music,” ‘70’s pop, and a little bit of “doo-wopp.” They are a 12-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.
