unHandsome Devils Official

UHD-Live-shot-800Welcome to the home of The unHandsome Devils. Primarily a rock cover band based in Central Illinois, the band highlights many of the 80’s hair bands along with some pop and/or metal. You’ll also hear some of cooler stuff from the 90’s & 2000’s. You’ll hear anything from Prince, Journey to Motley Crue, Van Halen, to Pantera, Alice in Chains, STP, to Shinedown. The name might be new to you, but the group is anything but new to the area’s music scene. Members of the band have played all over the Illinois area in local bands as well as National acts. Check out the BIO page to get familiarized with the band!

We’re also available for acoustic shows as well upon request! Interested? Contact us here!

Say hello to our little friend, Josh

Welcome to the world of Josh Thompson of The unHandsome Devils. Yep, he’s a hard workin’ son of a gun. We decided to strap a GoPro camera to his guitar and turn him loose. Here’s a little sumpin’ sumpin’ that may give you a little insight to just how hard the man works at our shows. You might even get a glimpse of the other guys in the band too. Josh is also available for barbecues & bar mitzvahs upon request.

Pekin Polooza 2016 – The Conclusion…

BIG KUDOS to the Twisted Spoke Saloon for pulling of a great day of fun. From the Biker Spot Magazine bike show to all of the bands that performed… It’s great to see such an event go so smoothly. There was hours of entertainment by some of the areas best bands including MATT MILLER, JEREMY DAVID BAKER, BRENT STORTZUM & THE VALENTINES, BRIAN DENNISON, AILEEAH COLGAN, RED LIGHT SYNDICATE, DROP ZONE, THE UNHANDSOME DEVILS and, all the way from Kansas City, Mo… MOTLEY CRUE Tribute LOOKS THAT KILL.

Here’s a little taste of some of the fun that was had on stage with us. Our old friend/guitarist TJ Duckwiler (Aileeah Colgan Band) decided to join us on stage for our cover of EXTREME’S “Get the Funk Out”…. Yes, FUNK.  Check out Josh & TJ’s 2 guys on 1 guitar approach. Keep in mind, this song is hard enough to pull off for 1 guy to do. Let alone, one guy picking & one guy fretting! Gary on drums/vocals & John on slappin’ da bass.

Sign In Please… A Night w/ Autograph

13315627_10153850433433533_3786504815067401751_nLast weekend we got to open up for AUTOGRAPH. You know… “TURN UP… THE RADIO”! Such a trip down memory lane watching these guys. Not only did they sound great, they were some of the coolest dudes. Very laid back & hung out with the crowd most of the night. The Twisted Spoke Saloon in Pekin got rocked for sure. The first band that opened the show was “Vintage Youth”. Pretty cool band & had a solid set list! Then… of course, was UHD. We played some of our favorite tunes from the 80’s… Guns ‘n Roses, Motley Crue, Extreme, Living Colour, Rush, Van Halen, etc. Then, Autograph roared onto the stage in a massive ball of ROCK & ROLL energy. They did not disappoint. If you get the chance, don’t miss them!
