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.
Praise for 3:1
The Captain Midnight Band plays "Waterbed Rock & Roll", a unique hybrid of Classic Rock, Jam, R&B, and blue poetry.
The Captain Midnight Band creates "Water Bed Rock & Roll" for the mind, booty, and soul. Crunchy Rock Guitar, Soaring Vocal Harmonies, and thick R&B grooves create a sonic landscape for the band's suggestive, Sci-Fi imagery and improvisational interplay.
Formed in New Orleans in 2002, The Captain Midnight Band stays true to the Crescent City's celebratory heritage, turning every show into a sweating, throbbing event, interspersed with humor, eroticism, and inspired jams.
Flattering comparisons to genre-defying acts such as P-Funk, Frank Zappa, and Ween are evident in the relationship between band and audience. Striking visuals and an ever-changing set list keep fans coming back for more.
Midnight's style has infiltrated a variety of musical realms. Bob Weir, moe., Merl Saunders, Dumpstaphunk, Galactic, Cornmeal, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Cypress Hill, Jimmy Herring Band, Dark Star Orchestra, Emmitt-Nershi Band, New Mastersounds, and The 2 Live Crew are just a few musical entities Midnight has either shared the stage or bills with.
Major influences include The Grateful Dead, Steely Dan, Funkadelic, George Lucas, KISS, Boz Scaggs, Little Feat, Joe Walsh, Frank Zappa, Joni Mitchell, Todd Rundgren, and Richard Pryor.[tabbyending][/expand]
