The Hudson Valley-bred, nationally recognized prog/rock band 3 celebrates the birthday of frontman and founder Joey Eppard at the Bearsville Theater on Saturday, September 1 at 8:30 p.m. It will likely shock locals to realize that 3 has been at it for almost 25 years, beginning their run with a set at the 1994 Woodstock Festival in Saugerties. In that time, they’ve morphed from a precocious funky trio into a complex and visionary prog band that has toured with Dream Theater and the Scorpions, among many others, and amassed a sizable national following. The band includes longtime members Billy Riker on guitar, the Grape and the Grain’s Daniel Grimsland on bass and vocals and former Peacebomb drummer Chris Gartmann.
Tickets to the Ashokan Talent production cost $20 in advance and $25 at the door. For tickets and additional information, visit www.bearsvilletheater.com. The Bearsville Theater is located at 291 Tinker Street in Woodstock.
