Drywater is a new outlaw country band making the move onto the Houston scene. Robert Douglass on lead vocals and rhythm guitar fronted the 6-piece “Robert Douglass Band” in Lawton, OK for six years before moving to Houston. He has shared the stage with many Nashville stars including Kenny Chesney, David Allen Coe, The Dixie Chicks and more. Bruce Wiggins plays lead guitar and banjo while helping out on vocals. A retired NFL lineman (Saints, 49ers, Seahawks), Bruce now spends his time and energy managing and playing guitar for Drywater. His previous bands include 100 Proof, The Corruptors, and Lebanon Blonde. Craig Behrens handles the drums. A Houston native, Craig played with The Texas Drifters for 4 years before joining Drywater. Anthony Carvajal, a San Antonio native formerly with The Martha White Band, Nick Rawson, and the Deadbeats, plays bass and provides harmony vocals. In addition to covering all your favorite country & western, southern, blues, rock, and pop songs, (listen to a sample "Just Like Heaven" written by the Cure but covered very well here) Drywater also writes their own original songs.

Drywater makes their first foray inside the loop with shows at Cosmo's Cafe on Feb. 18th and Blanco's on March 9th. Or catch them at one of these other shows all over southeast Texas.
