So, you want a rockin’ band, which plays classic rock cover like no other local band? Well, Tres Hombres is for you. The band is comprised of four professional players, former band members of The Pretenders, Nuclear Assault, Prophet, The White Boys, and Edgar Cayce. These band members have been playing, recording, and touring for more than 25 years. Their music plays to everyone, and includes hard-driving Rock n Roll from Deep Purple, Aerosmith, and Pink Floyd to the Who, Steely Dan, and even The Beatles. The band has been adding more contemporary music to its set list, so there is definitely something for everyone. Each song is well-balanced. The foundation is held together by Craig Scoppa on drums, and Scott Metaxas on bass. Together they hold down the driving beat and rhythm in a mix that plays off of each other. Add to that, John Albino on guitar, whose guitar riffs are dead on, and Chris Metaxis on keyboard for the final piece to the puzzle, and you have a sound that is full bodied, and explosive. This band you definitely want to see!
