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!
