Biography

DLO was the brain child of Deon Lowe; he wanted a band that could help make his songs come alive. The band originally started out in two thousand and three as the River Gypsies. The River Gypsies were able to play at Jammin in the Jackpine in 2003 and 2004. The River Gypsies (with the help of the community of Sapatoweyak Cree Nation) released their first single Honky Tonkin Cougar Women (written by Deon Lowe) to NCI in October 2004. Honky Tonkin Cougar Women made it to the top ten on the Aboriginal top thirty count down. Due to the busy schedules of some band members The River Gypsies went there separate ways. With the dismemberment of The River Gypsies DLO emerged.

DLO started to get together in March, 2005. With the release of their first album Northern Hillbilly in December 2005, their cover song hit number one on NCI twice.

The band covers a large selection of music from classic country and classic rock, to top forty hits of today. Deon describes DLO’s original music as a mixture of all ganeras of music, which cannot be put in one specific category. DLO’s music is as diverse as the band members themselves. There is a little something for everyone in the bands music.

Deon records his songs with Martin Klatt, who is the producing genius behind the music. Deon brings in the acoustic version of a song he has written to Martin; together they add in the extras, and a masterpiece is born. Deon recruited “Dynamite” Dave Veitch for live performances. DLO is looking forward to working with Dave in the recording studio, as Deon is currently writing songs for the band’s second album.

The original lead guitar player Joe Lathlin recorded two songs on the Northern Hillbilly CD. Joe left the band in November 2007 for personal reasons. Martin Klatt has been the lead guitar player since the Joe’s departure.

In August of 2007, Martin Snell joined the band as DLO's keyboard player. Martin Snell was Deon’s high school music teacher.

DLO has made quite a name for them selves in Northern Manitoba. The band resides in The Pas, Manitoba. DLO plays at local establishments at least once a month.

The band performs annually at the Jamming in the Jackpine music festival. The band has traveled to Flin Flon, Swan River, Creighton, Winnipeg, Brandon and Snow Lake.

DLO has opened up for bands such as Trooper, The Stampeders, Helix and Prism.

Lyrics

Northern Hillbilly

Written By: Deon Lowe

High on the Porcupine Mountains looking down
To the left and right the of me is my stomp-in ground
It’s where we used to drink where we used to fight
Party all day and party all night
I ‘m a northern hillbilly baby and I ain’t gonna change

High on the Porcupine Mountains coming down
Fifty five mile and hour on sandy ground
Have another shot better hold on tight
Like a bat out a of hell shooting through the night
I’m a northern hillbilly baby and I ain’t gonna change

Pass the paper bag my brother
Can’t you see my throat is dry
Pass your cigarettes my brother
I hate to ask you for a light

At the bottom of the this mountain is a little town
Where it really doesn’t matter if your skin is white or brown
Pull up a stump and grab your self a beer
Guitar pickers are welcome around here
We are northern hillbilly people and we ain’t gonna change

Pass the paper bag my brother
Can’t you see my throat is dry
Pass your cigarettes my brother
I hate to ask you for a light

Honkey Tonkin Cougar Women

Written By: Deon Lowe

Well I never seen a women like you in here before
I had my eyes on you when you first walked though the door
Wearing tight jeans shakin those hips
With big dark eyes and bright red lipstick
You’re a Honkey Tonkin cougar women gonna rock a young man’s world
I could tell that your husbands not in town
The way you’re pounding them back and dancing all around
Better be careful what you do somebody here is watching you
You’re a Honkey Tonkin Cougar Women wanna rock a young man’s world
Bet you were hot back in the day
If I looked at you, you would look away
Now your older and still lookin fine
How I wish I could make you mine
Well it started with a smile and a little wink
Can I sit down and buy you a drink
A little more dance a little more wine
A deep voice said it’s about time
She’s a Honkey Tonkin Cougar Women gonna rock her old man’s world
Bet you were hot back in the day
If I looked at you, you would look away
Now you are older and still lookin fine how I wish I could make you mine
Honkey Tonkin Cougar Women gonna rock your old man’s world
Honkey Tonkin Cougar Women gonna rock your old man’s world
Honkey Tonkin Cougar Women wanna rock a young man’s world
