The “show biz bug” bit Darrell early. In the ’70′s, his father played in a local band he called the “Cool Water Band” and had an entertainment company that booked local dates.
In late 2009, Darrell’s brother-in-law was diagnosed with cancer. A benefit concert was arranged and Darrell performed at the show, along with his father and a few close friends. The overwhelming success of that concert proved what people had been saying all along: Darrell Harwood is a natural born entertainer. After this single benefit concert, it became evident that Darrell was meant to perform. He immediately began to form his band and start rehearsals.
Darrell took his father’s “Cool Water Band” name and recruited players with decades of experience and personal ties. These talented performers support the fast-paced, high-energy
True to his roots, Darrell always makes an effort to give back to the community through his music. Since that first benefit show for his brother-in-law, Darrell has played several shows every year for charitable benefits. Some shows are for people with special needs and some are for organizations.
