Derringer

Derringer, a group of talented and dedicated musicians from Colorado's Western Slope, is bringing a spectacular show to Deltarado Days. The band will perform at the Delta Roundup Club arena following Saturday night's rodeo.

Sean Paxson formed Derringer in the spring of 1993 with the goal of creating a unique country-rock sound focusing on three-part harmonies, solid song writing and energetic stage presence.

Drawing on influences ranging from Brooks and Dunn and The Eagles, to classic country, Derringer combines familiar sounds to create a style that is all its own.

Derringer's sound and show have made it a favorite across Colorado, playing festivals, rodeos and bars such as the famous Grizzly Rose in Denver and Whiskey River in Grand Junction. Derringer has opened for national acts including The Pirates of the Mississippi, Doug Supernaw, Rick Trevino, Big House, Dan Seals, Michelle Wright, Ricky Lynn Gregg, The Smokin' Armadillos, Ricochet, Kenny Chesney, STYX, Dwight Yoakam, Country Jam (1999 and 2000), Chris Ledoux, The Little River Band, Black Hawk, Tracy Byrd, Highway 101 and Collin Raye.

In 1994 Derringer wrote and produced a ten song CD titled "Put A Little Kick in Your Country." The band released its second CD, "Rocky Mountain Rain," in 2011. All 12 songs are originals written by Sean Paxson and arranged by the band. Derringer performs several of the songs in its live performances.

Alive and well after 20 years, Derringer is booking shows regularly. Derringer members are Sean Paxson, lead vocals and lead guitar,; Emily Kingston, lead and backup vocals; Jeff Huff, keyboards, guitar and backup vocals; Randy Goodwin, percussion and backup vocals; and Fred Pena, bass.
