Midnight Friars specializes in 70s Jam Band music. We cover Grateful Dead, Phish, Traffic, The Who, The Doors, David Bowie, The Beatles..
The songs are not what you would typically hear from a "classic rock band," but rather are those tunes you love, but most "cover" bands don't play. The hidden gems. And, of course, we nail them.
Our goal is to surprise, entertain, and - of course - get you up and dancing![tabbyending][/expand]
Born from elements of a musical family tree that spans many styles and many miles, THREE TO ONE began rehearsals in the Winter of 2010 with the idea of picking up a few gigs around the Midwest, maybe some clubs, maybe some black-tie jazz gigs, whatever.
Then something special happened.
It was a sound; hard to describe, but easy to dig. A sound that can change as quick as a cat, yet somehow remain very special and identifiable.
2011 came and went, and with it the dozens of gigs that helped to forge the core of the band’s sound, sending THREE TO ONE into 2012 with momentum, direction, and invaluable stage time doing everything from backing up solo artists and vocal groups to instrumental jazz for black tie events to full-blown rock festival shows.
A commitment to let the band develop organically has produced great results so far. THREE TO ONE often collaborates with local and regional artists for special shows, all the while building a maintaining an impressive list of venues, clients, and accomplishments. Equally at home doing acoustic shows at local wineries, hot sets at clubs and festivals, or intimate house concerts, THREE TO ONE want to extend an open invitation to everyone – young or old, no matter what music you love, rich or poor, dog or cat; to join us on the journey.
