A short time later Devil's Kitchen became the house band at Helms' Family Dog Ball-room on The Great Highway in San Francisco and remained there in that capacity from the spring of 1968 until the summer of 1970. Devil's Kitchen played all the major venues in The Bay Area and Los Angeles during this time period, opening for and playing frequently with many very well-known bands, including The Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead, Santana, Quicksilver Messenger Service, The Allman Brothers, Big Brother And The Holding Company with Janis, The Charlatans and many, many others." - Lysergic Sound Distributors "Not unlike many of the best groups of the era, Devil's Kitchen were musicians who truly listened to each other and obviously enjoyed playing together. A truly special chemistry developed between the front line guitarists, Stokes and Champlin. Champlin's sensibilities and innate ability to create beautiful and infectious rhythm content inspired Stokes to soar on lead guitar. Stokes often sounds like a cross between Quicksilver's John Cipollina and Sons of Champlin's Terry Haggerty, two of the most accomplished and original guitarists of the time.
