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 Pette, The Beatles, Taylor Swift... Well, You can't please everyone. THis way, if they don't like us it's just their opinion. Mike Hauke says it best... "When I used to kick box, I used to keep his mouth closed, then when I got in the ring, I'd let my handhands and feet to the talking!" We'll let our talen 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!
HAUKE started playing guitar at 11
years old and changed to bass at age 18.
He has played and recorded through the years
and also trained in the martial arts for over
35 years. Mike took time off from playing in
bands to raise a family, but never lost the
desire to play and make the bigtime, in fact writing music and martial arts are his two
favorite past times. Mike is a full time musician along with his buddy Rich Wyde, the drummer.
RICH WYDE has been playing drums for
over 40 years RIch has played in
rock and jazz bands over the years.
But his favorite is rock and roll!
