The River Road Boys, based in Houston, Texas are best known as one of America’s premier Western Swing dance bands, and were featured in Postcards in 2012. Over the years, this fine band has played a whole range of music venues: dance halls, clubs, concerts, rodeos, weddings, county fairs, western swing festivals, the Astrodome, and Caribbean cruises. Organized in 1971 by founding members Clyde Brewer and Tommy Howser, this band carries on the traditional western swing music genre. Sadly, over the last few years the band has lost several members, including both founders and Bill Dessens. On a happy note, The River Road Boys are continuing to play and keep alive the tradition that is western swing. The band has recorded over 20 CD’s and LP albums through the years.
