In early 2003 Donnie Deschenes, Jeremy Munoz, Thom Cooper, Aaron Luckett and Sean Newman started a garage rock band with little intention of doing anything but party and play loud music. Somewhere in the middle of their madness was a method which soon became recognized by local underground rockers in orange county.

In May of 2004 the infamous "Detroit Bar" in Costa Mesa booked them as thier monday night resident band. They turned out to have a bigger draw than the Detroit Bar had ever anticipated making it one of the busiest residencies to date. Pistolero continued that year with a couple of appearances at The House of Blues Anaheim and a record breaking night at La Cave in Costa Mesa.

For the next couple of years the band seemed relatively quiet. No shows no news and no posts.
It seemed like out of nowhere in 2007 they emerged with a new heavier tighter sound. Booking shows From Alex's Bar(LBC) to Annies' Social Club(SF) with names like: The Bronx, Death by Stereo, Fu Manchu and Valient Thorr.

In 2010 Pistolero is nominated for "Best Metal" Band in The OC Music Awards(w/o ever releasing an album).

The Band is currently seeking management and label support for thier debut album due out summer of 2010
