Former schoolmates Manny Reyes and Vinny Manno formed 3rd echo in 1992 as a vehicle for their mutual admiration of rock. With the help of former bassist/keyboardist Billy Madere 3e was able to record two CDs, and tour non-stop for several years while garnering many friends and fans both at home in New Orleans and throughout the Southeast. But then the unexpected happened, and her name was Katrina. The fallout from the storm resulted in Billy leaving the band, and 3e going into indefinite hiatus. With Billy’s blessings Manny and Vinny decided to press on. With the addition of bassist Star Raffield, the newly re-tooled powerpop trio create infectious pop/rock melodies that are the product of muscular rhythms, inventive riffs, and tasty vocal harmonies – certainly a musical blend that’s ethereal, yet uncompromisingly sonic, as evidenced by their latest digital release WILL YOU LISTEN?
3rd echo, think about it. Isn't it the one you anticipate the most?
