John Stevens' Doubleshot formed together in January 1995. A young and energetic band releasing their first cassette "Doubleshot Preview" in March 1995.

After not playing for almost a year the group got back together in September 1997 releasing their 2nd recording "Everyone's Having Fun". This recording got the ball rolling once again for the band.
