The Devil Makes Three are not concerned with the state of the music scene today. Where artists like Arcade Fire and Radiohead are traversing new electronic sounds, The Devil Makes Three are exploring the old-timey stylings of ragtime and rockabilly.
The Californian three-piece play a folksy rendition of country and blues music, warm nostalgic tunes that bring to mind barn dances and outdoor festivals with plenty of good food piled high. Songs that should be playing as you hop a train car and ride the rails, songs that evoke images of 1920’s America going by at 25 miles per hour.
The three members of The Devil Makes Three all pull double duty while performing, singing and playing their respective instruments. Lucia Turino on the upright bass adds her classical country singing voice to the mix, providing sweet back up vocals to lead singer and guitarist Pete Bernhard.
Opening for The Devil Makes Three are The Cave Singers, a group that blends traditional folk roots like Woodie Guthrie with a more contemporary indie style. Featuring guitar twangs and washboard scrapes, The Cave Singers are from the same old school as The Devil Makes Three, playing music that could perfectly soundtrack a movie like Cool Hand Luke.
Order a ticket today and stomp your feet to the banjo and washboard at The Devil Makes Three and The Cave Singers.
