Who is Devon Galley?
Lead singer of the now defunct 2003 SAMMIE winners of Rock Band of the Year, Victory Gin (1999 - 2004), Devon Galley has been performing in front of large crowds since September of 1995. In that time he has captured audiences at numerous Sacramento area venues including the Boardwalk, the Blue Lamp, the Fox and Goose, Harlow's, Old Ironsides, Pistol Pete's, and Starlite Lounge. He did the same while touring with Victory Gin at venues outside of California, such as the Satyricon in Portland, Oregon, The Central in Seattle, Washington, and Liquid Joe's in Salt Lake City, Utah. With Victory Gin he had the privilege of being a featured act in the notorious Nadine's Wild Weekends in Sacramento and Nadine's Wild Nights in San Francisco. Now performing solo throughout the Sacramento area, Devon brings a rare, soulful edge to acoustic music. Drawing on influences like Toad the Wet Sprocket, Tom Petty, and Jeff Buckley, his dynamic vocals and sincere presentation offer audiences a truly unique and energetic live music experience.
