DANNY RIVERA - Lead Vocals, Acoustic and Electric Guitar, Banjo, Dobro and Lap Steel. Danny began his musical career as a roadie for a south Texas band. Down time between shows left room for one of the band members to show him a couple of chords on the guitar. Those three chords sparked an interest in performing that has been going strong ever since. "Once it's in your blood - it's hard to stop", he says. Life on the road landed him a regular gig with capital recording artist Allison Paige Read more on Last.fm
DANNY RIVERA - Lead Vocals, Acoustic and Electric Guitar, Banjo, Dobro and Lap Steel. Danny began his musical career as a roadie for a south Texas band. Down time between shows left room for one of the band members to show him a couple of chords on the guitar. Those three chords sparked an interest in performing that has been going strong ever since. "Once it's in your blood - it's hard to stop", he says.

Life on the road landed him a regular gig with capital recording artist Allison Paige, which in turn united him with Tommy Rennick and Graham Artist Management. Two years later, their combined efforts brought to life Rio Grand and a record deal with Curb Records. TOMMY RENNICK - Bass Guitar, Backing Vocals. Tommy started dabbling in music at the age of 16 when his uncle bought him a red Gremlin bass. With influences from Creedence Clearwater Revival, Tom Petty and the Beatles he honed his playing skills and landed his first gig at 19 with 37 South a Corpus Christi hometown band of his high school buddies.

Four years at Texas A and M and a music degree later, he began playing with Allison Paige where he met Danny Rivera. It was a year later that the two formed what was to become Rio Grand. FRED STALLCUP - Lead and Acoustic Guitar, Backing Vocals. The youngest of three musical brothers, Fred began playing guitar at age 11. As the boys grew, they began playing nightclubs and bars from El Paso to Jacksonville. Over time they found they enjoyed the art of writing original music over performing and disbanded.

Fred pressed on with various bands but found most members not cut out for a grueling tour schedule. Out of frustration, he took a day job and a break from the business. But it wasn't long until he was approached by a member of Herbert Graham's Management team and asked if he'd be interested in playing with a new band called Rio Grand. He'd seen them perform and his answer was "It's magic and I have to be a part of it." Read more on Last.fm.
