Dévah works and records with drummers Mackenzie Longpré and Mike Vanderhule of Y&T. Dévah invents a rich texture of sound utilizing effect pedals traditionally used by electric bass, piano and guitar, thus creating different tones and dimensions to their music. Void of any stereotypical mold, Dévah is continuously evolving and recreating itself…. this time around they will be performing “2112” the fourth studio album by Canadian rock band RUSH. We can’t think of anyone better to sink their teeth into this prog rock masterpiece. www.devahquartet.com
