Our Story

Mischief was founded as an alternative to the "status quo" classic rock cover band. The change was afoot. All we needed was the perfect lineup of professional, committed, fun and ohhh TALENTED musicians. If you build it they will come, right? Come they did in the form of Devin Schaller, Will Payne, Desmond Washington, Keotis Williams and Jerry Turmaine. The group quickly gelled into one of South Florida's Premier Dance bands. What you'll notice right off the bat is how the band gets into the "pocket" and cruises into the groove of the music. It's infectious really. Most bands only have one singer, Mischief has all five members singing lead and backing vocals. The Heartbeat comes in the form of our phenomenal bass guitarist. Will slaps the bass better than anybody and pays particular attention to detail. Joining Will in the rhythm section is Jerry Turmaine. Driving the band on drums and percussion. This dynamic duo runs this infectious crazy train. Devin Schaller comes to us by way of an extensive classic blues, R&B and rock repertoire. His melodic riffs add that "extra groove" to the band. The "guy who plays everything else" is Keotis Williams on keyboard. Horn section, guitar, piano, synth and maybe even tuba if we needed one. Standing in the front of the band is our outstanding lead vocalist, Desmond Washington. Belting out the soulful style of Marvin Gaye with the technical range of Bruno Mars. He is able to deliver a powerhouse performance that hits you in your toes. Together we are Mischief. We hail from all corners of the United States, infusing the R&B from the West Coast and the Groove from Boston with the energy of New York and the flavor of South Florida.
