Light Crust Doughboys – Booking Promo


The Light Crust Doughboys Concert & Record Tours

The Light Crust Doughboys, Grammy winners, Texas Radio Hall of Famers, and much more, are always blazing new trails in roots, Americana, and western swing music but never forgetting their roots from 1931 onward as perhaps the quintessential band of rural Texas fame. The Light Crust Doughboys tour with a classic, Texas music heritage program ranging from the Pappy O’Daniel “odes to the State of Texas,” to cowboy repertoire, to Texas country and folk music, to western jazz and swing, to a sprinkling of gospel and patriotic.

The Doughboys are called, committed and dedicated to traveling to EVERY TOWN and CITY in Texas and Oklahoma–regardless of size–to perform at all types of concerts, events, musical seminars and workshops.
