Our Story

We are the Derringers, an Ottawa-based cover band featuring all of your modern country and classic rock favourites. We have built a reputation with our high energy, interactive live shows and the extensive variety of our song selection - whatever it takes to keep the dance floor rocking! We are fronted by the dynamic DW James and Ottawa Valley fiddle sensation Ben Rutz is a frequent collaborator. Together, we have created an infectious concoction of rock and roll energy with a honky tonk vibe! We've headlined some major shows along the way including the Almonte, Renfrew, and Metcalfe fairs, the Ladysmith Oktoberfest, and many outdoor festivals. We take pride in our professionalism, musicianship, and ease of doing business.  

See you at the next show!
