3rd Degree Band

About the band

3rd Degree Band – You can write a book on these guys. It may even be a best seller.
But to keep people from getting bored we have shortened up the history on where each of these guys came from. The main thing is come and check the band out and let their talent speak for itself, then for the very few that say they are not appealing.... thinking some people don't like Tom Petty, The Beatles, Taylor Swift... Well, You can't please everyone. This way, if they don't like us it's just their opinion. We'll let our talent do the talking! That's who we are, three old guys that love to play, do it well and have a good time. We will always entertain. We may be old but we don't know it!

Jim Sosa
JIM SOSA was introduced to the guitar at the age of 7. "My father knew a few chords and thought he would teach them to me. I realized that I had a knack for it. Continued learning new chords and found that it was fun. 7 years later, The Beatles came out and inspired me enough to make music my life. Put a group together with some friends, and booked small venues. 7 years later, I was with a group, playing guitar, and found that the music was changing due to the organ being used in a lot of cover tunes. The group had the patience to allow me to learn how to play organ. Been playing both instruments ever since. After many years of playing in different groups of various genres, here I am with 3rd Degree, and having fun with it."
