The roots of The Parlour Shootout were born in May 2010. The first jam session between bassist Bryan Moseley, and drummer Christina Sousa set the tone for a no compromise attitude, and a willingness to sacrifce. Once the complex and aggresive rhythm section was dialed in, it was critical to find a guitarist who could not only write a hook, but be original. Enter Andre Gonzalez, whose creativity completed the musical arrangement. The search for a vocalist was on, and through a twist of fate, Deven Estrella auditioned for the band. It was clear that Deven brought the "it" factor so often sought by bands, but rarely found. The 4 members of The Parlour Shootout clicked instantly, not simply in the Jam room, but on a personal level. The shared dedication to the music formed a band with staying power, resolve, and a high standard for musicanship.
