If you are looking for a dependable, experienced, professional band for your venue, party, festival or event that can keep everyone dancing, drinking and having a blast...you should hire Cosmic Dust Devils. Built around the award-winning songwriting of Kevin Higgins, The Cosmic Dust Devils, a Texas-based band, was founded in 2001. Led on guitars and vocals by Higgins with his wife and musical partner Barbara Malteze on keyboards and vocals, the group proclaims to have a distinctive style, which they call "Farm-to-Market Rock-and-Roll." Stating their independence from hype and trends, The Cosmic Dust Devils can lay down a hot honky tonk number; a ripping 70's rocker; then a bluegrass groove; scream thru a blues tune; caress a ballad...you never know what to expect. And, The Cosmic Dust Devils do it all with energy, feel, abandon and talent. This is Americana at it's best...no one else is kickin' up dirt this hard, creating the real melting pot that folks call "Texas music." Add to that the visual advantage of a male and female fronting the band and you have a winning combination all the way around. Attend any Cosmic Dust Devils’ performance, and you’ll see a loyal legion of cross-generational music fans, (known as “Stormchasers”), who will excitedly describe the band’s live show as “charismatic” and “explosive.” The Cosmic Dust Devils’ music has that hip “throwback” quality, appealing to both the younger crowd, as well as adult “empty-nesters” who have felt abandoned by the music industry for years. “You could say we’re just being true to our actual roots,” remarks Kevin Higgins, “those roots being Country & Western, Rhythm & Blues, and Rock & Roll.” Over the course of three albums, countless gigs, airplay on XM satellite radio, Americana and Texas Music chart stations, an annual festival known as the “Coastal Bender”, and a healthy press and music industry buzz over the last decade or so, the group has become one of the most notable grassroots success stories in the state. Greg Patterson, DJ, KHYI 95.3, (Dallas), says it best, "the Cosmic Dust Devils are the Cinderella band of Texas." On the horizon for 2015, the Cosmic Dust Devils are busy planning their next release, to be recorded with the current rhythm section consisting of the deadly-talented "Hill Country Hitmen"; John Gammill (bass) and Clay Bielman (drums). Along for the ride, (and newest member of the group) is guitar slinger Noel Bullard, who is raising eyebrows with the finesse he brings to the band. From beautiful melodies to blistering deliveries, Noel can "do it all" and is a welcome addition to the Cosmic Dust Devils.
