Born in Denver, Colorado, Don Preston moved to Whittier, California, with his family when he was 8 years old, joining the Sewart-Barber Boys Choir as its youngest member. By age 11, he had been studying and playing the guitar for 3 years, and began performing with the Cactus Kids and another musical troupe of girls and boys who played at market openings, company parties, and USO clubs all over Southern California.
With trips to see live broadcasts of TV's "Town Hall Party" in nearby Compton, CA, Don’s musical style was taking root in country music as well as in the blues and rock 'n' roll as he became immersed in the diverse and vibrant pop culture of Southern California during the 1950s.
At age 15, he first heard B.B. King, Lowell Fulson, Johnny “Guitar” Watson, and other emerging blues artists on late-night AM radio broadcasts. Within a few years, he would be playing the same bills with them when they headlined in Los Angeles.
Living a few miles from the entertainment capital of the world, Don had the opportunity to play his guitar with many of R&B's icons, including The Penguins, The Coasters, The Olympics, and The Jaguars. He also backed up legendary hitmakers such as Ritchie Valens, The Righteous Brothers, Gene Vincent, Don Julian and the Meadowlarks, and Jessie Hill in clubs, halls, and historic L.A. venues like the El Monte Legion Stadium and Harmony Park. Those early inspirations are heard in Don's music and albums, including his album Sacre Blues.
The 1960s opened the door to a new musical era as Don and the Deacons regularly played the popular Cinnamon Cinder club, owned by Bob Eubanks, in North Hollywood. That exposure led to Don joining The Shindogs with Joey Cooper, Chuck Blackwell, and Delaney Bramlett. The group's pure Beatle-esque harmonies immediately produced a hit single, and they went on the road touring numerous states.
