Dalton is a native Texan currently residing in Shreveport, LA. Like many performers, Dalton's early musical performances centered around singing in church, but his professional music career began in 1976 in South Carolina where he formed a country/bluegrass band (The Dalton Gang) in which he was the lead singer and played rhythm guitar. The band played throughout central South Carolina until Dalton moved to Louisiana in the late 1980s. He continued to occasionally sit in with various local groups but did not form a new band. With the latest advances in digital technology, Dalton discovered that he could offer high quality, professional music without having to hire a complete band. He and two other partners formed River City Entertainment in 2009. They use this technology to provide a variety of quality musical entertainment options and/or food for any type of social event in the Shreveport-Bossier City, LA area. Dalton entertains as a solo vocalist and one-man band, while another partner plays karaoke, and the third partner caters food whenever requested.
