Diesel 255 was formed to be the “cure for the common cover-band”. Richard, Shaun and Kenny started as solo artists in Jackson when Destin Purvis suggested the band idea. Since they had all been friends for years, it was a no brainer. With three part vocal harmonies, a massive song index (including originals), years of experience and a well-rehearsed sound, Diesel 255 has made a name for itself throughout the South.
