Jul-23-14 07:00 PM 3 - A TRIBUTE TO TRIOS - Paying Homage To The Great 3-Pc. Bands Of All-Time!

Paying Homage To The Great 3 Piece Bands Of All-Time!

3 - A TRIBUTE TO TRIOS Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Cream, ZZ Top, Grand Funk, The Police, Stray Cats, The Police, Nirvana, The Script, John Mayer Trio, and More

THREE Started out by pure chance in 2009. A band called The G-String Band was having a reunion party where all past and present members were invited to come and sit in for an all night Jam session. Although never officially band members, Frank C, Steve F and Frank F were all in attendance to support their mutual friends. Through pure sympatico when Frank F was called up to sing and play a few tunes... Frank C and Steve were already on stage at their respective Bass and Drum posts. It was pure magic from the very first notes, and the seeds of THREE were planted. Originally we started out as JOHNNY AND THE TRIUMPHS (www.johnnyandthetriumphs.com). We had some fun basing the band around a Ficticuios front man (afterall, there is NO JOHNNY in the band). As we fine tuned our band we kept hearing the same thing... "All THAT music and sound from THREE GUYS?" So we knew that we were, as we always had been... THREE

Jul-23-14 07:00 PM A Tribute to Trios With THREE A Tribute to Trios With THREE at B.B. King's

Good things come in threes -- including some of the best bands of all-time. B.B. King Blues Club pays tribute to those legendary trios with a concert by THREE. Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Cream, ZZ Top, Grand Funk, The Police, Stray Cats, The Police, Nirvana, The Script and John Mayer Trio are just some of the bands whose songs you might hear at a concert by THREE. No matter what they play, though, you'll be amazed that just three guys can make that much music.

Jul-23-14 09:30 PM VOODOO CHILD: JIMI HENDRIX Tribute

Straight out of New York City & fronted by Jimy Bleu (who has been carrying on the Hendrix tradition through direct musical lineage), the 3-piece band presents an unbeatable high-energy stage show, augmenting much of Hendrix' material with today's Rock, Funk, Caribbean, Jazz, Worldbeat & Hip-Hop rhythms.

A former Columbia/Def Jam recording artist in his own right, Bleu has been performing a detailed Hendrix tribute worldwide non-stop since 1968, while a member of the official Hendrix fan club at Warner/Reprise records. He was one of the students responsible for having Hendrix address a small assembly at his school, high school of the Performing Arts in NYC.

Starting in the late 1970's, he has also been giving lectures on radio, TV & college campuses, expounding the musical, spiritual & political importance of Hendrix.

"VOODOO CHILD" has performed in major venues across the globe, which has included the Woodstock 25th anniversary (as featured act), Atlanta Pop Festival, Reggae Sun Splash, MTV-sponsored 'Rock The Vote Tour', and numerous radio promotional concerts. They have also appeared on German TV, BBC TV in London and MTV as well as opening for some of the top names in the rock scene, such as Foghat, Slade, Aerosmith & Graham Central Station.

In 1983, Bleu performed and acted in an off-Broadway play based on Hendrix that was made into a short film which aired in the early 90's. That short film is now in post-production as a feature full-length film due to be released shortly, called "Voodoo Child: A Man & His Guitar". The trailer to the film is linked above.

In the recording studio, Bleu is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, exceedingly re-creating Hendrix' sound on guitar, bass, live drums & vocals.

In the words of Bleu....."If you want to know Hendrix's discography, his various guitars, his clothes, his girlfriends, his toothpaste, then you can read the bios, view the docs or talk to those who played with him & were close to him.........but if you really want to understand the deep mysticism of his music & his early stage show, then all roads lead to me~!"
