Grand Rapids Rocks- Devin And The Dead Frets


I love Grand Rapids and all it has to offer with local music, so I decided why not feature local bands here on wgrd.com! Today’s featured Devin and the Dead Frets, these guys also won ROUND 1 of Rocktagon Throwdown! They answered a few questions for me below! Check them out, and if you’re in a local band who wants to be featured fill out this form.
