Three Stories / Bio

Based outside Boston, Three Stories is a 5-piece indie blues rock band with an original sound that blends classic and psychedelic rock, with some Americana, folk rock, jazz and UK alternative influences mixed in.

The band features Ron on guitar and lead vocals, Len (E. Stix) on drums, Allen on bass guitar, Derek on lead guitar, and Dave (the Professor) on keys. Originally a 3-piece studio project, the band found some early success as a finalist in the 2006 WFNX Last Band Standing competition and started playing out in 2008. The band’s single “Out of My League,” was also spotlighted in the Music Nation “Spin Hot Pursuit Contest” and made it to number 168 on the Indie Rock chart on GarageBand.com.

Recently the band has explored longer-format blues and jazz inspired covers and jam-flavored originals - such as Camping Song, a Dead-inspired feel-good tune, I Can't Find You, a spacey (think the Church) alt-rock groove, and Shades of Blue, a blues rock exploration. While looking at bringing in new influences and even other performers to the mix, the band continues to evolve and create new arrangements of earlier Three Stories originals as well.

With a new energy and evolving sophistication, the band has also upped its game when it comes to playing live, and has performed in legendary Boston venues such as Copperfield's, as well as suburban music halls like Steve's Backstage Pass and City Oasis and high-profile charity events. When the mood strikes you can also find us providing the tunes for our favorite wine and beer tastings events, and even dropping in on open mic events around town.
