“Congratulations to Ric Rogers! Abilene's 2015 Guitar Player Of The Year! Thanks to all who voted! ‪#‎abilenerocks‬”

“3 Shades Blue is a Texas based Southern Rock/Blues band comprised of four members that hail from all over the Lone Star State. Their showmanship and attitude toward themselves and their music are a few of their strong points. The band introduces dynamic singles from past, current, and future albums, and they let the music explain the songs instead of making a speech about them. They also perform a good mix of cover songs and mash-ups, which are the best mash-ups around. They take their music seriously, but don't mind making fun of themselves on occasion.”

“They [Three Shades Blue] are the most active band in our area code.”

Mike England

“Along with Three Shades Blue, Blackberry Smoke will be coming to the Lucky Mule Saloon on Thursday night, March 14th..........Three Shades Blue bring a solid, unique, and enjoyable sound”

“I get to guest with probably the best band to come out of Abilene in a long time: Three Shades Blue.”

“If you're looking for Ric Rogers, chances are you'll find him with a guitar in hand, or at the very least, close by. When Rogers isn't teaching 30 students a week to play guitar, you can find him onstage with his band, Three Shades Blue. Music is in his blood. His mother was a professional musician, as was her father. He passed the gene along. His son Ryky Rogers plays drums in Three Shades Blue.”

“This year, the Brownwood Reunion Celebration ‘Celebration Stage’ will feature pop music legend Rick Springfield on Friday the 14th, and Texas country star Wade Bowen on Saturday the 15th. Other performers include Mark Powell and Lariat, Brenda Kay, Three Shades Blue and Blackbird.”

"Three Shades Blue is one of my favorite groups to watch live. They are such a tight, polished, and dynamic band. Our band has actually gone on break when they were playing across the street just because we wanted to walk across to hear them." ~Casper Owens ~
