de’ve-es is comprised of four seasoned musicians. The elements comprising this band are vocals, guitar, bass and drums. They thrive on diversity in their music which sets them apart. Crossing over into different genres of music seems to be no problem or brings no fear. They, in fact, often do that within a song. You can pick out elements of funk, metal, alternative, hardcore and laid back grooves just by listening to their debut 7-song CD which was released in December of 2002. As far as the vocals, they are anywhere from extremely melodic to rap to aggressive. With a combination of the main vocals and backups, you will hear some of the most original vocal patterns not normally combined within a song.

de’ve-es’ debut CD is just a fraction of their accomplishments. They are constantly writing new material in hopes of reaching their 35 - 45 song mark by the summer. Some of the elements remain the same in a number of songs while others are totally uncharted. They also play some cover songs by the bands System of a Down, Lost Prophets, P.O.D. and 311 to name a few. You’ll find them quite often playing several sets a night combining both original and cover material.

If you can’t be completely drawn in by hearing their CD you need to see them live. Whenever you see de’ve-es you better be down for a good show. For the clubs and fans who know de’ve-es their name has become synonymous with high energy, creativity and total entertainment. There is much movement as they put their music to motion. The energy they release at their shows has landed them gigs opening for acts such as Earshot, Outspoken, Taproot, Wick, and Wolfpac.

Since their CD release party on December 27th, 2002 they have already sold over 700 copies. Their music has been featured twice on the Banana 101.5 sound check. Their CD is also in regular rotation in many of the clubs throughout mid-Michigan - - not by the bands request. The rest of their merchandise such as girl’s and guy’s shirts, stickers, hats, and jewelry have also been selling extremely well. de’ve-es can play as many shows as they can book. As of now, they play at venues from Toledo, OH to Bay City, MI. They are looking to expand to other cities and states, eventually touring year round.

It has gained them a broad fan base along with some airplay. The music, live show and the guys themselves are amazing. de’ve-es is here right now and they are ready.
