DKO 12 Yrs Old & Still Going Strong!

Just like a good Macallan Cask Strength,
DKO is potent, sophisticated and was born 12 yrs ago today Oct 10, 2001!
DKO's first performance was at the local Denver club
Herman's Hideaway for their new talent showcase on Wednesdays,
and then 3 days later we played at the now extinct Denver Buffalo Company.
Thanks to all for your continued love and support of great music.
