the boss man
Steve Davenport is from Uvalde, Texas. He has traveled all across the State working, playing pool, singing and raising his family, now residing in Leakey, Texas. He is the oldest son of Bobby Davenport and Wilma Neely. Steve has 3 children, Haley, Justin, and Carlie, and 2 grandchildren, Alex and Ben.
Steve is sole remaining founding members of The Rough River Band and has been performing since 2010. He now has had the great pleasure of playing with the current members, who he considers brothers, since 2012 and been rocking it ever since!!
When not performing, Steve enjoys bass fishing, playing pool, barbecuing, and spending time with his family and close friends, which he considers family as well.
He is the grandson of artist Bill Neely, who is considered to be the "Father of Austin Country & Blues", so you can say County Music is in his blood. One of his fondest memories is sitting in front of his pap-pa and watching him play. Little did he know at that point that he would be following in his grandfather’s footsteps and be able to bring so much music, to so many people.
Steve is looking forward to, and is extremely excited about, where the Band is headed, and can’t wait to see what the next years bring. He would like to give a huge thanks everyone who has supported him and been there for him, to all the fans that come to the shows, and to the many friends he has made along the way…you guys are “Freakin Awesome”..!!!
