The band formed in October 2008. The original lineup included Warren G. on bass. The band was then unofficially called "Yellow Fever"
Kyle T. and Joe M. and Warren G are classmates at Pine Valley Middle School. Kyle met Phil D. jamming in Rock Shop at The Red House Studio in Walnut Creek. Warren left the band after about a month. He helped write, "No More Runnin'"
Conor B. came into the band in November 2008. Conor fit right in the band. The guys practiced every week at the Red House under the wing of Foundry teacher, Ryan Lendt. They worked on songs by Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and AC/DC. The boys also started writing their own songs. They finished up "No More Runnin'" and wrote "Devil's Angels"
The guys played their first show at the Red House in February 2009. They were on the bill with other Band Foundry program bands. It ended up that they were the only band that night. The show was a great success. The band played live for the first time in front of a full house of friends and family! (see on youtube)
The band continued playing Red House gigs throughout 2009.
The City of Dublin invited the boys to play the Spring Teen Concert in April. They opened for two high school bands - Awakening Aurora and Shatterfish. The boys did a fantastic job rocking thru their 20 minute set of covers and originals.
The City of Dublin invited them back to play the Summer Concert Series in July. They opened for "Threshold", a fantastic party band.
The guys had a busy summer playing at the Red House, Conor's swim team party and two gigs in Lafayette. (Rock the Plaza and the Art and Wine Festival). A highlight was playing the graduation for the non-profit group "Guitars Not Guns". The band was shown on KGO 7 News that night. Congrats to Barbara Gorin for her great work.
The band went into the studio in November and recorded the debut EP - Rock 'N' Roll Fire. The CD is available for purchase and download at www.devilsangelsrocks.com
The band wants to thank their families and friends for a great and memorable 2009!
