The Diablos

THE DIABLOS all hail from the sunny seaside town of Brighton on the Sussex coast. They have proved to be one of the most enduring and influential British country bands of the last 15 years.””

Initially named The Coral Reefers the band had a few line up changes before re-naming themselves The Diablos in 2005. Their first album Welcome to the Club was released in 2007 to widespread critical acclaim.

Albums Rhinestones and Diamonds, Riding the Long Road and One Degree of Separation followed and then in 2017 the band released a double compilation album The Very Best of The Diablos. It included a “live” CD and a total of 27 tracks charting their progress.

In 2020, The Diablos released their first new music for five years with the album “”Leaving Santa Rosa””. It includes 13 self-penned songs to make you laugh, cry, rock out or just drift back to a simpler time.

Once famously described by a critic as “ The Eagles having a few beers with The Mavericks whilst listening to Johnny Cash on the juke box” this is a band at the peak of their writing and performance powers. The album includes The Ballad of Johnny and Mary, When I’m Gone, Don’t Ask Why and the title track Leaving Santa Rosa. Available on CD or memory stick format.
