Higher Education is a band forged in the fires of brotherly love. Spawned by Danny and Petey Devaney's love of music they have gone from a local favorite of the DMV to playing nationally at festivals and venues, leaving their indelible mark of love and celebration in each area they visit.


Their genre blending sound of rock, reggae, and psychedelic jams bring forward a message of community, love and introspection while still firmly rooted in the idea that this life can be one big party. Ignoring the confines of genre has given the band the ability to connect with their listeners, building a community that inhabits a better world. 


The Devaney brothers together with Bradley Wilson on drums and Chris Haddad on lead guitar have created a musical wonderland for their listeners. Bringing to life soul stirring vocals, infectious guitar riffs and booty shaking rhythms their music offers an education for a higher realm.
