The Devil Doves

The Devil Doves are currently in the studio, following up their well acclaimed self-titled debut record, released on Mingo Town Music. With an active touring schedule that covers Ohio and branches out into its neighboring states, the Devil Doves have been delighting audiences at taverns and festivals with their energetic live performances and creative songwriting. The Devil Doves are a 4-piece based out of Columbus, Ohio featuring the sandpaper vocals and insightful lyrics of Junior Kauffman, the aggressive style of Kyle "Headband" Davis on the cajon, the steady thump of Rico "Thunderstorm" Nassau on the bass, and the improvisational prowess of Jeff Straw on the keys. Look for the new record to drop in the Spring of 2017.
