The Band consists of Kirk Riggs, lead vocal, rhythm guitar; Taylor Reed,
harmony vocals, lead guitar; Ryan Oldham, rhythm guitar; James Marris,
bass; and Ryan Roring, drums. Kirk is the primary lyricist, writing most
of the songs. He and the rest of the band put music to the words. With
their combined talents, their works have a unique quality that is not seen
in most music today.
On their new E.P. "Live at Sully's", Kirk and company express their views
ranging from relationships, addiction, and the simple life of growing up in
southern rural Oklahoma. In the opening track "When Tomorrow Becomes Now",
Kirk and company deal with how it is to live in a small town where everyone
knows you and everything about you. When relationships go sour it seems all
your friends take sides and you feel you just need to get away from this
small town and maybe things will get better. Also featured on the E.P. is
"I Met the Devil". The "Devil" is ANY addiction people struggle with and
question why we can't get away from it.
Kirk Riggs and The Dewey Drivers Band have played for sold out crowds

alongside performers such as Jeff Hobbs and Rich O'Toole. Soon after, he was
playing areas from Muskogee to Ardmore, Oklahoma and Paris, Texas to
Stillwater, Oklahoma with famous acts such as Jason Boland, Reckless Kelly,
