The Devil Doves

The Devil Doves are riding the success of their self-titled debut record, released on the DIY label Mingo Town Music, and are branching out from their usual garage sale and grocery store gig. Fronted by Junior Kauffman’s rough vocals and insightful lyrics, and backed the uptempo and aggressive styles of Kyle “Headband” Davis on the cajon and Rico “Thunderstorm” Nassau on the bass, the Devil Doves have become a favorite within the Columbus scene. With the addition of Jeff “Pretty Fingers” Straw on the keys and the occasional guest appearance of So Long Stargazer’s Kristin Green on backing vocals, the double D’s continue to build a fan base throughout Ohio and beyond with their energetic live performances and creative songwriting.
