Born in Illinois, Davey, Bobby and Jimmy CALABRESE relocated to Arizona in 1999. Inspired by legendary bands and the rock 'n' roll genre they loved, they turned off the horror movies and put down the comic books to start their own band in 2003. Bobby had played guitar and Jimmy had played bass in previous bands but Davey was new to the drums. So through constant screaming and yelling, Jimmy and Bobby tore Davey down into emotional scum and built him up as the drumming mad man he is today.
CALABRESE attracts those who feel confused by the current state of popular music. With worldwide distribution through the Internet, CALABRESE are quickly converting an international audience. With consistent touring, classic song writing and a steadfast dedication to their fans, CALABRESE are forcing their way into the nightmares of helpless fans everywhere.
"I think CALABRESE is one of the top Horror Rock bands I have heard."
– Blasko (Bassist for ROB ZOMBIE and OZZY OSBOURNE).
"Please allow me to introduce these horror punk heartthrobs from the dusty graveyards of Arizona. This is a band of three brothers (actual brothers, actual last name CALABRESE) with a wicked MISFITS-meets-RAMONES-meets-DAMNED sound that is tight, hard and fiercely melodic...More often than not I've heard this "horror" genre done really poorly, but this can serve as the benchmark of how to get it right."
- Jeff Dahl ( VOX POP, THE ANGRY SAMOANS)
"Calabrese’s sound has been compared to The Misfits, The Ramones, and a host of other acts in between. In reality, their unique ability to take burning hard edged rock guitar with crisp clean drums along with darker crooning voodoo vocals sets them apart from any current punk act. By sinking their fangs into their work and locking their jaws down, Calabrese’s stalwart approach combined with vampiric biting wit make them a force to be reckoned with on the horror punk sound stage."
- Fangoria (America's Horror Magazine since 1979)
"CALABRESE is not just a band that is helping to keep horror punk alive, they're also helping to keep real rock music alive."
Comic book artist and writer, best known as the creator of "THE GOON" for Dark Horse Comics.
"Quite simply, Calabrese is the world’s greatest horror punk band and they’re coming to get you."
– Brian Pulido
