"MTV Buzzes Over So Long Davey!"

"Don't let the tombstone in the beginning of So Long Davey!'s "Six Feet Down" video fool you. The San Diego punk-pop quartet really is very much alive!" - MTV Buzzworthy


"So Long Davey! turned up the heat with its shirtless front man David Vaughn, who belted out a number of songs including the lively “You Got Me." Decked out in a neon green bandana and pants with suspenders, [the band] rocked the 30-minute set closing out with a graceful stage-dive, and the take-home message of the day: 'You can wear makeup, but you can’t say bitches.'" - San Diego State University (The Daily Aztec)

"Glam riffs at the speed of bright with looks to match" - New Miami Times

"Substream Music Magazine"

So Long Davey! is not your typical pop-punk band; these guys are a seemingly unstoppable brand of dance-pop-rock that will have you up and out of your seat before you even know what hit you. Having played shows with bands like Family Force 5 and Jeffree Star, So Long Davey! is on the quick up and up, so we wanted to give you the chance to get to know the band a little bit better. Check out our short interview with them and then hit up to give their tunes a listen! - Substream Music Magazine


Still working on that hot first release.

So Long Davey pulls sound and stage influences from Jimmy Eat World, Michael Jackson, Freddie Mercury and The Beatles. They've been a crowd favorite opening for several tours including Vans Warped Tour and support for Unwritten Law, Plain White T's, and Steel Panther.

The band's latest self-release is 'The Real Houseboys of Beverly Hills', their first full length album. Produced and engineered by Kyle Black (Neon Trees, Paramore) and recorded at Big Fish Studios in San Diego (Blink-182, Jimmy Eat World, Switchfoot), the 10 tracks are full of huge sounds and catchy vocals.
