3:1 Three To One

The Right Music for Your Event - Whatever the Event!

THREE TO ONE – JOIN US ON THE JOURNEY!

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

3:1 Group Photo"This professional group of musicians knocked our socks off with their instrumental jazz numbers, then changed format in mid-stream to include requests for dance numbers in which they performed flawlessly."
~ Stacey Howell, Henderson Leadership Initiative, Inc.

 

3:1 Group Photo"In my two decades in the entertainment business, I have had the opportunity to work with a lot of bands, but few are as versatile and can fit in at any venue or occasion. The Indy based trio 3:1 is one of these rare bands. This trio can play in the smallest club to a handful of people or at a large outdoor fest and still please the entire crowd. They can play smooth instrumental jazz at a black tie affair, or get funky for the dance lovers. I was amazed at all the different types of music that came out this three piece band. They are all multi-talented musicians who understand a crowd and the surroundings they are in. I would recommend this band for any event. I am definitely impressed!"
~ Reggie Helm, Helm Productions & Promotions
