Three Piece Bands

Recommended Posts

Three piece bands who had hits a pub covers band might please an audience with.. I'm having The Jam, what else have you got?

Any style, age genre. Just a well recognised song in their back catalogue - or even two of course.

Go hive mind go

if you expand it to 3 piece plus a non instrument playing singer, which is the same thing, there's a lot more

Yep. But I am going to be pedantic and stick to trios!

I play in a number trios and the number of members of the original bands has never crossed my mind when we come to choosing songs.

When we strip the song down, it just has to be a good song, the audience has to like it, it has to suite out style and we have to be able to play it well.

Rush - Spirit of Radio or Tom Sawyer, that'll keep you busy...

Thanks folks. It's just a sketch of an outline of half an idea at the moment, but myself, drummer friend and guitarist might look to put a 3 piece together and for the fun of it playing only songs by trios. Not only for our fun though got to appeal to the general public.

Ben Folds Five - will require some creative thinking by your guitar player mind!

The Police, Green Day, plenty of decent hits in their back catalogues.

Early Cure songs work well as a 3 piece.

A few ideas from similar stuff I've played with a Pub Covers esque band...

Biffy Clyo - Who's Got a Match

Green Day - Basket Case, Longview etc.

Feeder - Just a Day , I'm pretty sure they are a trio but may tour with more members.

Muse - Time Is Running Out

Nirvana - The Man Who Sold The World

Sublime - What I Got
