The story of the band who would be soon known as THE LORDS OF ALTAMONT gets a proper start in 1999. A son of Southern California and a veteran of the SoCal music scene, Jake Cavaliere – with numerous bands and projects from garage to punk dating back to the late 80s under his belt – enlisted fellow motorcycle rider and bandmate of instro/surf sensation The Bomboras, Johnny Devilla, to form something new. Max Eidson, Doran Shelley, and Gabriel Hammond rounded out the original lineup known as “The First Five”. Besides holding their first show at the legendary venue The Garage in Hollywood, high points include touring as the support act for their primitive rock’n’roll idols The Cramps, infamous rock gods The Who as well as counting late Michael Davis of the MC5 as a past member.
Through personnel changes and various adventures over the past 17+ years, THE LORDS OF ALTAMONT continue to release albums and Jake “The Preacher” Cavaliere, along with his assemblage of gritty and talented personalities, continues to captivate audiences with unparalleled, hard-driven performances over the world.
