In 2013 after a brief dressing room discussion at the Bluesrock festival in Tegelen NL, Guy Forsyth joined The Hoax on stage for a riotous version of Going To The Church by The Red Devils. “We should do this again” was the inevitable discussion post show. Fast forward a couple of years and after a few emails back and forth DVL was born.
The band is a collaboration between Austin based Blues supremo Guy Forsyth and Jon Amor, Robin Davey and Mark Barrett from UK Blues Hall of Famers The Hoax. The first time these two acts shared a bill together was at that very same Bluesrock festival, and the headliner that year was The Red Devils. It was clear from that moment the impact The Red Devils had had already had on these two fledgling acts on the european blues scene. It’s testament to the brief career of Lester Butler and The Red Devils, that their music would continue to influence and inspire these acts through two decades of making music.
