Bio

Most people who visit the Southern tip of Oklahoma down I-35 come for the recreational clear waters of Lake Murray and Lake Texoma, but this area is also a retreat for a growing music movement called “Red Dirt”. Oklahoma has been home for some well known music performers and an up and comer is Kirk Riggs and The Dewey Drivers Band who call Ardmore home.

The Band consists of Kirk Riggs, lead vocal, rhythm guitar; Taylor Reed, harmony vocals, lead guitar; Ryan Oldham, rhythm guitar; James Marris, bass; and Jamie Hurt, drums. Kirk is the primary lyricist, writing most of the songs. He and the rest of the band put music to the words. With their combined talents, their works have a unique quality that is not seen in most music today.

In September of 2009, Kirk will release his debut album entitled, “I Met the Devil.” The album is produced by the legendary artist and producer, Mike McClure. In the album, Kirk discusses everyday troubles and obstacles that everyone can relate to.

Kirk Riggs and The Dewey Drivers Band have played for sold out crowds including Stillwater, Oklahoma and Ardmore. Kirk got his start playing alongside performers such as Jeff Hobbs and Rich O’Toole. Soon after, he was playing areas from Muskogee to Ardmore, Oklahoma and Paris, Texas to Stillwater, Oklahoma with famous acts such as Jason Boland, Reckless Kelly, and the Bart Crow Band.

They have also donated a lot of time to benefits and charitable events including Kraig Lee Hodge Memorial Scholarship Fund during “Kooterfest” with Stoney Larue, “Downtown Festival”, an event promoting live music in Ardmore, Suzy’s Fund an event to raise money for those afflicted with Craniosynestosis, and “Tornado Benefit Jam” to benefit the victims of the deadly tornado in Lone Grove, Oklahoma; Kirk Riggs and the DDB were on the bill along with Country Music Mega Star Chris Cagle.

Kirk Riggs & the DDB wrap the audience in a high energy performance that brings you into the emotions of the songs they write. After watching the intense performance, the crowd feels like they have walked in the bands’ shoes.
