The Demon Beat is a rock and roll trio from Shepherdstown, West Virginia. The band was originally formed by guitarist/vocalist Adam Meisterhans and drummer Jordan Hudkins in 2005. The later addition of bass player Tucker Riggleman completed the line-up. The Demon Beat attempt to re-capture the live energy and integrity of bands from the late 1960's. Citing such inspirations as The Black Keys, Weezer, Thin Lizzy, Otis Redding and Ratatat, The Demon Beat draw from many different genres and styles to create loud, in your face rock and roll.
