Doc D’s Rock ‘n Blues Show
Doc D’s Rock ‘n Blues Show takes place monthly at the Waxahachie Optimist Club. Dr. Del Waters has set up the new music venue in the hopes of giving the people of Waxahachie and the surrounding area place to hear talented blues and rock musicians in a non-smoking, non-alcoholic environment that is more family-oriented and kid-friendly, much like local country/gospel oprys. It will give bands and the singers a venue to bring their friends and family to hear their music and promote their bands.
