deFrance formed from the muddy banks of the Ouachita River in the vest pocket town of Camden, Arkansas. Called the “hardest working band in Arkansas,” the band is closing in on 1,000 shows since forming in 2015. deFrance now calls Little Rock, Arkansas, home but these road warriors carry their modern take on classic rock & roll across the world, having performed shows at legendary international venues as well as earning the respect of fans locally, with two of their songs being selected for use in Arkansas state tourism commercials. The band’s technical prowess and deliverance of a truly pure Rock & Roll/Americana sound has been recognized with support opportunities for classic rock legends Foghat, Bon Jovi, ZZ Top, Glenn Hughes, Marshall Tucker Band, Blue Oyster Cult, Atlanta Rhythm Section, as well as Alt country/Americana icons Whiskey Myers, Robert Randolph, Shooter Jennings and many more!
