who we Are
It’s almost impossible to find a good roommate through a ‘wanted’ ad, let alone a good bandmate, but Seattle-born, indie rock duo Duke Evers found exceptions to both rules. Though both members were in separate bands at the time, Kyle Veazey (drums) and Josh Starkel (guitar/vocals) discovered through living room jam sessions that they were meant to join forces and create barn-burning rock ‘n roll, with blue- flavored pop melodies.
The band quickly landed several shows around Seattle, including a June 2013 show at The Crocodile which led to immediate request to come back the next month for a bigger event, followed by a headlining gig at the Tractor Tavern, and showcases at CMJ 2013 in New York.
In the four years since inception, Duke Evers has played Capitol Hill Block Party multiple years in a row. Took on monsoon style thunderstorms in 2015 at Bumbershoot and joined the ranks of awesome bands who played the first annual Upstream Music Festival in 2016.
They released their first full-length album, Velvet Hips in November 2016 and shortly after were signed to Another Century label. This dynamic duo make a lasting impression you don’t want to miss!
