The Deathray Davies is a Dallas-based band founded by multi-instrumentalist John Dufilho. Dufilho used the moniker on the CD Drink With The Grown-Ups And Listen To The Jazz, writing all songs and playing all instruments himself. He then put a band together to play the songs live. Subsequent releases were recorded with additional musicians who also played in other groups. The Deathray Davies has been on hiatus since Dufilho joined The Apples In Stereo.
