Alt-country band the Damn Quails need help finding their road manager. Colin Deyalsingh disappeared before the group took the stage in Houston on Saturday night. No one has seen him since.
The group is hoping word of Deyalsingh’s disappearance will help reveal clues as to his whereabouts, or what happened. All of his personal belongings were left behind, and no one has heard from him since about 11PM CT on March 19, shortly before the group’s set at the Firehouse Saloon. Radio Texas Live was among the first to report this story on Monday.
“If anyone at the show or in the area has any idea about where he may be, or if anyone saw him anywhere in the Houston area, please let us know as soon as possible,” the band writes. “Please call CTK Entertainment at 512-312-9350 if you have any information.”
A comment on another post reveals that the missing man is about 6 feet tall and weighs roughly 215 pounds. He was wearing a brown hoodie, jeans and a Cody Jinks hat when he was last seen. He has several tattoos, including a full sleeve on his right arm and some on his left. The band says that he his not in any local hospitals or jails.
The Damn Quails were founded by Bryon White and Gabe Marshall. After forming a full band, they released the critically acclaimed Down the Hatch album in 2011. At their Facebook page, they say that they pride themselves on carrying on a great Oklahoma tradition of songwriting, and have dedicated themselves to the road. Legal issues with a record label and management company temporarily derailed the group after Down the Hatch was released, but after two years, lawsuits were settled.
In January 2015 they raised over $50K on Kickstarter and recorded the Out of the Birdcage album with Reckless Kelly producer David Abeyta. The album was released in September.
On Facebook, TDQ encourage anyone to share photos and posts of their missing manager, Deyalsingh. Dozens of fans or friends of Deyalsingh have responded with prayers or questions about the disappearance, and several members of the law enforcement community are involved.
