Relatively new to the Detroit rock scene, The Daredevils are a roots rock band featuring "Evil" Pete Halliday on guitar and vocals, Rob "Papa Wheelie" Green on bass, and "Super Dave" Florkiewicz on drums. Formerly the core of Angie O'Plasty & The Broken Hearts, the trio are focusing on a straight-forward sound and plan to bring out some new music later in the year.
The Daredevils each bring unique musical perspectives to the group. Rob has a background in garage and classic rock and has stayed current with the music scene for decades. David brings a wealth of 80s rock and 90s and newer alternative as well as some more eclectic genres like Gypsy jazz. Pete is a little bit country and a little bit rock & roll with tastes that tend toward roots rock, alt. country, and Americana with a bit of 70s outlaw country thrown in. Some of our collective musical influences and artists we cover are John Mellencamp, Lucinda Williams, Old 97s, Tom Petty, Credence Clearwater Revival, Black Crowes, Drive-By Truckers, to name but a few.
