"Third Party’s 2014 is a story all by itself. A few weeks ago, reporter Ryan Richardson told the story of the band’s highs and lows, from having their instruments stolen to seeing crowdfunding support for a new album. That album, “Music for Driving,” is phenomenal. Cohesively written and expertly recorded, band members said a bunch of scattered threads were expertly woven together by Trent Bell of Bell Labs Studio. The result is a beautiful mix of layered groove-rock that will last for an entire season of road trips."
“Nestled amongst names like Yonder Mountain String Band and Les Claypool are two of Joplin's sharpest bands: Totojojo and Third Party. Both bands will take part in this year's festival, which is expected to draw more than 10,000 fans to Mulberry Mountain in Ozark, Ark.”
“Third Party is a Joplin-based, five-piece band that blends old school funk with a drop of prog and elements of modern indie rock. Together, this creates a distinctly experimental sound the band uses to seek new soundscapes.”
