"Three Bad Jacks set Santa Ana on fire with a flame-filled psychobilly/rockabilly night"

The show started out with The Daisy Pushers from Costa Mesa. The singer Shadoe shook and gyrated in contorted seizure fits as bassist Bootlegs laid down dirty-sounding riffs that seemed more appropriate for a sultry burlesque show than a 9 pm spot at a rockabilly gig. The music was mostly dark and moody, and vaguely reminded me of a circus freak show – in a good way. They were definitely not what I expected from the opening band for Three Bad Jacks, but I think the crowd was pleasantly surprised given the applause after their more psychobilly-sounding song “Lady Luck” and the sudden development of a wrecking pit during their last song. - LA Rockabilly/Psychobilly Examiner


Still working on that hot first release.



The Daisy Pushers are a voodoo grunge quartet from Costa Mesa, California. With influences ranging from The Doors, Alice in Chains, The Meteors, Duke Ellington, to Tom Waits; their sound encompasses heavy swing, circus funk, riverboat punk, and Spanish surf with an overall horrific message. Formed by the growling crooner, Shadoe Costa, and the whammy bar madman, Chris White (a.k.a. Mr. Black), in the “Bear Cave” during the winter of 2008, the two came together with a mutual love of blues, rock, and psychobilly. After acquiring good friend Brett Peloquin (a.k.a. Bootlegs), whose jazz-funk-rock bass and pure back-up vocals added a new dimension to the outfit, the three began developing their songs and performance. After only a few weeks as a band, the group was asked to play their first show at the 1st O.C. Punk Rock and Roll Picnic. With a month to prepare, they quickly found (now ex) drummer Andy Anderson, a place to rehearse at Griffdog Records, and threw together a short set. Since then, The Daisy Pushers have played dozens of shows- from C.IA in Hollywood, to The Route 66 car show in Riverside, back home to The Galaxy Theatre- and opened for great bands like Three Bad Jacks, T.S.O.L., The Adolescents, Guttermouth, Cadillac Tramps, and many others. They were fortunate enough to film a music video with talented U.C.I. film students for their first single “Lady Luck,” and later recorded their second E.P at Griffdog Records, which features “Voodoo Bride.” These songs and more are available on iTunes as the E.P. titled Decoy. During the winter of 2009, jazz-rock drummer Sam “Sully” Salamon joined the band, and since then the band has been writing, refining, and detailing old and new songs, perfecting their stage performance, and playing all the shows that come their way! Look for their new single, “Secret Lover of the Deep,” to be released in the spring of 2010.
