Uncle Slaytons welcomes the acoustic trio The Devil Makes Three tonight at 8:30 for what promises to be an exciting show for any fan of great music. The band has it's roots in a multitude of styles as they describe themselves as a mix of ragtime, country, folk and rockabilly. Guitarist/frontman Pete Bernhard, stand-up bassist Lucia Turino and guitarist Cooper McBean combine to create a unique sound that resonates within your bones and gets them jumping and jostling to an infectious beat.
“The rhythm is what our band is about,” Bernard enthuses. “We write with rhythm and dancing in mind.” With the goal of being “an acoustic band but to play our shows like a rock show,” the band changed notions of what acoustic music could be. “A lot of it is really calm, and performances are sort of a ‘sit down, don’t talk, don’t move’ kind of an event. Thinking back to the old blues, ragtime and jug band music, it was house music, party music. That was what we wanted to do. And there really aren’t any other bands doing that.”
If you don't have tickets already, you're out of luck since the show is sold out. If you have your tickets, we'll see you at the party!
