The Devil Makes Three Live Session

Aired 1-29-2014

Comprised of frontman/guitarist Pete Bernhard, guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Cooper McBean, and upright bassist Lucia Turino, the drummerless acoustic trio is not your normal alt.country band. 

While deeply rooted in the blues and country music, they also enthusiastically incorporate elements of bluegrass, ragtime, and jug band traditions as well. All three members migrated to California from New England (Bernhard and McBean grew up together in Vermont, while they met New Hampshire native Turino after moving to Santa Cruz), with fierce influences rooted in punk rock and the blues. Though they don't have a drummer, the band's live performances make up for the half-finished rhythm section by rocking as hard as possible.
