The Devils Train was formed in late 2009 in Grass Valley, Ca by Akasha "Hepcat" Scribner (vocals) Jamo Simmons (drums), and Alex "Bone Daddy" Scribner (bass) with the aspiration of not being stuck in a single genre. Throughout the years there have been a number of guitarists, but now consist of John Kinsman and Edwin Drake as well as the addition of Luke Warmardam on trumpet. The songs are an ironic take on commonly macabre subjects, such as death and pain, which are brought to light in a number of ways and backed by hard hitting music which is not to be dropped into a "pigeon-hold" of styles. The Devils Train has stuck to the idea of playing "whatever we want", from jazz, punk, rock, metal, rockabilly, hardcore, psychobilly, oi, ska, folk, reggae, abstract or anything that comes way.
The premise of the band is to take the evil or dark parts of oneself and accept it into life, with the belief that to be completely honest with yourself, you must live with your demons without shame.
The Devils Train excels in live performances. With hundreds of shows under there belt, the band uses a medley of exciting dancing, enthusiastic guitar, and "bass acrobatics" which are sure to impress.
The Devils Train has been fortunate to play with many amazing bands such as Fishbone, Koffin Kats, FUX, The Secretions, Dirty Filthy Mugs, Black Rose Phantoms, Los Pistoleros, The Infamous Swanks, Avenue Saints and many more. For booking information call or text 530-798-9700.
