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. Occasionally, Darrell would go out with his dad and get up and sing a couple of songs. Soon Darrell’s performances created a buzz and people started booking him for private shows. He grew more comfortable performing, and bands began to approach him. A bittersweet twist of fate eventually brought Darrell to where he is today. 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-paces, high-energy style that has earned Darrell the reputation of powerhouse performer. Also know as the “CWB” band, this close - knit family of musicians are not only great players, but great friends. Check out DARRELL HARWOOD & CWB... you won't regret it!
