Dead 27s began in 2012 when members from various bands decided to play together at a birthday celebration called Face Funk. The band immediately clicked and was asked to play a Jimi Hendrix tribute show. The show was a huge success and word of mouth quickly spread about this group around Charleston, SC. In August of 2012, Dead 27s recorded and released a 2 song single, which included 2013 Charleston City Paper Music Award "Song of the Year" and 2013 Best of Charleston winner, "Don't Want to Live My Life Without You". Dead 27s also won, "Rock Band of the Year", "Up and Coming Artist of the Year" and guitarist Mullinax won "Guitarist of the Year". Mullinax has also shared the stage with Leftover Salmon's Vince Herman, Everyone Orchestra, and many others. Dead 27s' sound is described as a Southern blend of rock and soul.
Over the past year, this Charleston super-group has opened for the Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Orgone, Sol Driven Train, Col. Bruce Hampton, Dark Star Orchestra, Toubab Krewe, Patterson Hood, among others. Dead 27s seven-song critically acclaimed debut, "Chase Your Devils Down", was released in April 2014. In June 2014, Dead 27s placed in the top 24 for Vh1's You Oughtta Know Artist' Make a Band Famous competition.
