Formed in 2002, The Neighborhood Bullys are a Los Angeles band of eclectic musical masterminds; featuring singer / bass player Davey Meshell, lead guitarist Greg West, rhythm guitarist Zach Jones, who also provides soulful backing vocals. It's this element that elevates the Bullys beyond a regular rock band and gives them a Lou Rawls with Sam Cooke dynamic...and on drums is the hardest working Viking in Rock 'N Roll; Reijo Repa Kauppila.
The Bullys music oozes authenticity and sincerity. In modern terms their sound is comparable to Kings of Leon but with an underlying aesthetic of Iggy Pop and New York Dolls, mixed with an earthy slab of Mary Wells and Otis Redding, and a tinge of the pop sensibility of The Cars – hence the term they so lovingly use to describe themselves ‘Punk Soul’.

“The Neighborhood Bullys come equipped with creatively crafted songs and the instrumental talent to perform them at a professional level” - Music Connection Magazine
"The best * band in Los Angeles" - Chris Morris (Billboard / Hollywood Reporter Writer)
