The Devil You Adore Shares Past, Present and Future Fun with DJAMM.
Hard working. Trustworthy. Moralistic. Talented. Four words that aren’t always used together to describe one person, let alone a group of them. But, The Devil You Adore isn’t just any old group. No way.
During their second appearance on DJAMM show tonight. Dizzy D. B.A. Barraw and Travesty gave listeners a good glimpse into that band’s depth of character. Don’t let the name fool you. These folks have a work ethic and sense of humanity that extends far past so-called humanitarians. The name only refers to everyone’s favorite vice; food, TV, video, clothes, work – we all have one. These folks are no more ‘devil oriented’ than chocolate cake or boiled egg halves at Thanksgiving.
Lead singer Dizz tells us about her earliest influences, her favorite parts about being in a band, and why she chose this group of dudes to sing with; dudes who are all much older than her 19 years. It’s an interesting and compelling tale
DYA tells us about their performances at this year’s Rocklahoma and the people responsible for making all that happen. They also do a shout out to special people who have helped them along the way, including promoters, venues and just plain ol’ good people. People much like they are.
We also take time to thank our growing list of sponsors for the upcoming Rock the Equinox concert at Lake John Wells on August 27
. Come out from under your rock and rock with US on that day! Go to drjeffreyandthemadman.com
to see details and find out where you can get your tickets.
This is one for the books and the bookers folks ! Hear and meet the band partially responsible for the Okie Tusk genre, and what their plans are for the future. You’ll be pleasantly surprised to learn what they’ve been up to, and what they have up their rock and roll sleeves.
Peace-In, gentle listeners. Rock out with your… socks out.

Who says that only L.A. and NYC are the best places for music in America? Obviously some grossly misinformed people who haven’t heard Stress on the Rich !
Three members of Stress on the Rich, a young Fort Smith, AR band rocked our socks with their acoustic chops on Friday, July 29th ! WOW, what a micro-set they hit us with.
Lead guitarist Dillon Taylor with Dillon Yother on acoustic bass and Travis Taylor on vocals, brought it TO US in DJAMM studios; playing no less than four of their original songs and teasing us with another ! I say again, WOW ! Doc and the MadMan were alternately choked up with emotion, recovering from cold chills and set back in their studio chairs as these impressive, talented and “together” young folks worked hard.
The guys were so blown away, they didn’t even bother to banter their usual “hows it goin’ ” dialogue. That’s correct; the entire show was dedicated to the music of these four friends who boast their own recording studio and over 60 collectible guitars. OH, and lest one forget, their ages added together wouldn’t equal the speed limit on I-40.
In a special emotional segment, SOTR presented a song they wrote about the late Jarrett Chord Chapman, a Stigler Kindergarten student who succumbed in 2015 after a battle with a rare form of brain tumor. The song, Drive that Train, begins about 51 minutes into the podcast, and appears on the group’s first EP which is named by title in the show.
Tune in for this week’s show and know that music is made here in the foothills of the Ozarks !
Keep it coming, guys! We loved having you!
Be sure to check out the Rock the Equinox FB page and read the growing list of sponsors who are making this groundbreaking event possible ! See it here: https://www.facebook.com/rocktheequinox/

What is the meaning of Life? Well, Doug Adams tells us that the answer to Life is 42, whatever that means, but that sounds like as good an answer as any. However, tonite MadMan and the Doc discuss the origins of stone tools, locally sourced arrowheads, the constellations, planets and the moons. Heck, at times, they even sound downright philosophical.
Join these two as the take a thoughtful and interesting stroll through their feelings on archaeology, paleontology, astronomy and several other things they wish they knew more about. Europa, Io, and Calisto? Not just the names of some great Argentinian soccer players.
DJAMM also starts the first promos for the end of summer rock show to be held at Lake John Wells ! To be sure, Rock the Equinox is going to be an event to remember, with hopes that it helps establish a new series of concerts in our fair region.
Don’t forget Saturday with Partnering for the Park at Roye Park in Stigler, where an evening’s festivities will include live music, games, drawings and a golf ball drop – all centered around the NEW PAVILION ~! And if you’re feeling extra froggy, jump on into a 3-on-3 roundball tournament at the new basketball courts. Doc and MadMan get to be part of this well planned and benevolent day. Countless people have chipped in time, effort, elbow grease and brainpower to make it all happen. Come out and show your support for our beautiful park and its future here.
WOW! All that’s happening in Stigler??
Folks, you have no idea. We’re just getting started !
