crankshaftHello everybody, I hope you are well!

It's gonna be a busy month for me and the band, we'll be touring between the 20th and 23rd, hitting Albert Lea, Fort Dodge, Kansas City, and St. Louis. If you have friends in those areas please let them know that we're coming through! We'll also be playing in Grand Forks this month.

We have some pretty bad ass shows booked for this summer already, including Memory Lanes Block Party in Minneapolis, Bastille Days in Milwaukee, Med City BBQ Festival in Rochester, Bayfront Blues Festival in Duluth, and opening for 38 Special in Niagara Wisconsin!
 
Since the last update I've finished three new songs, which I'm super excited about! I'll be playing them at upcoming shows, which are listed below, boogie! See you soon! Alex

Thee Unholy 3 Gig Alert this Friday!

E-mail Print PDF

theeunholy3You said it is too cold to go out and we listened!  We waited until it got warmer so this Friday, March 28, we are at the Terminal Bar.

 
The Terminal Bar
409 E Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55414
 
Music starts at 9:30, we go on around 10:15.
 
There might be a $5 cover so bring a lot of $$$.
 
Bobby 'The Beat' has a new Gretsch drum kit, Tommy has a new guitar created by Reverb Rey and I'll bring something with 4 strings.  It should be a great time to see old friends and meet new ones.

Thee Unholy 3 plays traditional surf music spanning from it's inception in the early '60s through today's interpretation of high energy and reverb soaked surf music. They play tribute to the great instrumentalists such as Duane Eddy, Link Wray, Floyd Kramer and Santo & Johnny.

Thee Unholy 3 have continued the tradition set by the great instrumental band The Ventures by turning catchy pop tunes of all eras and genres into interesting and reverent instrumental versions by artists from Chris Isaak to Lady Gaga to the Association to the Rolling Stones. Tommy Love lets the guitar do the singing while Bob Philipp on drums and Rick Larson on bass hold a steady rhythm. They have developed a style that has earned them a place among today's most successful instrumental groups, as well as complementing those of the past.

Visit our Reverb Nation page http://www.reverbnation.com/theeunholy3 or our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Thee-Unholy-3/128655680544288 for the list of upcoming gigs.

Three guys with one love of surf/instrumental music with the hope of making people just a little happier, if not sweatier.

Don’t forget to say “Hi” to our parole officers.

Last night we blew our $1,600 goal out of the water with a total of $2,400 raised for Second Harvest Heartland! Thanks so much for coming out to Magillycuddy's to show your support for such a good cause! We're not sure how much food we collected, once it's weighed I'll make a news update onhttp://crankshaftmusic.com I can say, the Crankshaft van is very full of food!

I'll be releasing a new limited edition CD on December 14th called "Boogie Melt" a live album that was recorded with a giant 13 piece rhythm section! I'm only pressing 1,000 copies, it will not be released to Itunes, and will not be repressed. Hope to see you at Famous Dave's in Uptown! My friends The Fattenin' Frogs, and Kevin James & Tony Comeau, will also be releasing new albums on that night, so this will be a triple release party!

Have a great holiday season everyone, I'll be scaling my performances back in January and February to focus on finishing the upstairs of my home, during that time you can find me exclusively at Magillycuddy's every Sunday from 6-9pm (no cover).

Thanks for your continued support! - Crankshaft!
