About Me

Dan Smith

Drums, washboard, vocals

Dan has been a member of Riverrock since the band’s inception. He came up with the band’s name and has been involved in the entire history of the band, as a musician, band manager and booking agent. Dan, a solid drummer and vocalist, is best remembered for his crowd-pleasing washboard solos. This talent has made him a welcome guest performer with many professional bands, including several gigs with John McEuen of Nitty Gritty Dirt Band fame and the late, great Vassar Clements. Dan was a member of the 61 Country Jamboree on WDAF radio in the 1980s and managed the careers of the Dixie Cadillacs, Glow and Rick Harrelson. As drummer for Blackwater and The Kenny Tuna Band, Dan shared the stage with artists like Nicolette Larson, Desert Rose Band and Keith Urban. Dan Smith Agency, an entertainment booking company, is a member of the Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri and Iowa state fair associations and a signatory of the American Federation of Musicians. His recording studio is his “day job” where hundreds of hip-hop, rock, country, blues and ethnic artists have made their mark on the K.C. music scene, including Heet Mob/Soul Project whose song “I See Ya”, was featured in the score for the Hollywood Movie, Brown Sugar, staring Taye Diggs, Sanaa Lathan, Mos Def and Queen Latifah.
