Driver 23 is a hard rock band from Mcallen, TX. The band was formed in 2000 by current members Danny Rodriguez, Thom McCalla,and former member J.J. Mendoza.
Setting out to make their own music by writing material that reflected what they grew up with and music they love, the band was quick on the scene turning heads with a live show full of energy and gaining respect from many bands in and around McAllen. After many line up changes throughout the 2000s (the most major being the loss of drummer JJ) the band enters 2011 with a solid group of dedicated band members full of desire and drive to become the premiere rock/metal band out of the RGV. The band has recently signed to Indie label Dark Pony records and are re-recording SmokeStacked adding a more even flow and radio ready sound …Having played throughout Texas as well as Louisiana, the band is ready to branch out to the world and spread the love of thier art to anyone who will give it a listen.
