In 2005, Stever, alongside Joey Eppard, Billy Riker, Chris Gartmann, and Joe Stote from 3, formed Fire Deuce, an 80s-style metal group. Fellow artists like Claudio (harmonica, guitar, vocals) and Josh Eppard (drums) have made appearances. In 2006, Stever created a solo project known as The English Panther, which was then renamed Davenport Cabinet in 2008 after the Davenport Brothers, who were magicians. Over the years, he picked up extra members, such as Tyler Klose, Tom Farkas, Michael Robert Hickey, and Rory Hohenberger. Davenport Cabinet disbanded in 2016.
