It’s always a thrill seeing old friends from my old adopted hometown of Cleveland, Ohio in my new adopted hometown of Los Angeles, California. Especially when they’re onstage, bringing the house down in the way only Buzz Boron and Joey Shipman of the Duvalby Bros. can do!
Buzz and Joey were joined by a former Duvalby—bassist Ray Piller—as well as another old Cleveland music scene mainstay, Mike Peffer (brother of Steve Peffer from 9 Shocks Terror, Pleasure Leftists and my old band, Razak Solar System). Consider Mike a Duvalby cousin because he drummed on some 21st Century Duvalby recordings and was a member of Cleveland scene compatriots, Biblical Proof Of UFOs, along with Joey and Ray. Ya follow?
Here’s what I said about this night on social media back when it happened:
Duvalby Bros. and their music have really stood the test of time. Classic! Part of an amazing show last night that blended Cleveland and LA folks who are part of an incredible musical continuum. Feeling uplifted.
The night ended with the most spectacular lunar eclipse I’ve ever seen. Fitting in many ways. This would be the last time I would see Buzz Boron (RIP).
