Bon Ton Roulette
Born 1952 in Dallas, Texas, Darrell's powerful, distinctive vocals and excellent harmonica work have been heard all over the world. Featured on Episode 5 of Mambo Sauce with Anson and The Rockets, Darrell went on to make outstanding recordings for Black Top as a member of Ronnie Earl's Broadcasters, for Hubert Sumlin, and for his own excellent ensemble, Texas Heat. Darrell is so well respected that when superstar James Cotton was forced to stop singing for good, he hired Darrell to take over vocal duties. Intelligent songwriting is yet another of Darrell's attributes, and he performs with a maturity, dignity and class learned directly from the old masters. He is equally at home with blues or 60's styled soul, and everyone should check out his renditions of James Carr's "Love Attack" and "Pouring Water On A Drowning Man".
