About

Power trio The Detroit Dives are veteran Detroit rockers Kevin Perri (The Junk Monkeys) on bass, Andrew Pike (The Black Mollies) on drums, and Ron McPherson (Joint Chiefs of Detroit, Sunday Painters) on vocals and guitar. Taking cues from their past lives in The Junk Monkeys, The Black Mollies, and Sunday Painters, The Dives have crafted a sound that weaves driving riffs and compelling, sometimes irreverent lyrics into a gritty but honest musical tapestry that is distinctly Detroit rock and roll.


The Detroit Dives released their debut full length cd, Magnificent Desolation, in April of 2014. Although each song on “Magnificent Desolation” has a distinct mood, sometimes fun and irreverent, sometimes serious and searching, the continuity that bonds the work is the band’s signature sound: driving riffs, compelling lyrics and a presentation that is unmistakably rock and roll. Case in point: “Second Man.” The song is a subtle but clever ode to astronaut Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon. The song’s arrangement takes multiple dips and turns, but never veers off course. Throughout the album, the mood shifts in varying directions—“Whiskey Talking” and “Wild Flower” are on opposite ends of the spectrum thematically—but the sound throughout is always distinctly The Detroit Dives.
