Don & Dewey – Bim Bam

Don Francis Bowman Harris (June 18, 1938 – November 30, 1999), known as Don “Sugarcane” Harris, was an American rock and roll violinist and guitarist.

Harris was born and raised in Pasadena, California, and started an act called Don and Dewey with his childhood friend Dewey Terry in the mid 1950s. Although they were recorded by Art Rupe on his Specialty label, mostly utilizing the services of legendary drummer Earl Palmer, Don and Dewey didn’t have any hits. However, Harris and Terry co-authored such early rock and roll classics as “Farmer John“, “Justine”, “I’m Leaving It Up to You“, and “Big Boy Pete,” all of which became hits for other artists.
