BIO:
With a slightly punky perspective on vintage American blues, The Devil Makes Three is a breath of fresh musical air on its eponymous Milan debut. Laced with elements of ragtime, country, folk and rockabilly, the critically praised, drummer-less trio  consisting of guitarist/frontman Pete Bernhard, stand-up bassist Lucia Turino and guitarist Cooper McBean  brings forth a genuine approach to acoustic music that is deeply steeped in rhythm.

"The rhythm is what our band is about," Bernard enthuses. "We write with rhythm and dancing in mind." Launched with the "The Plank," an ode to meeting one's maker, The DMT's infectious amalgam of styles talks the talk and it walks the walk right out of the starting gate.

Like the Violent Femmes before them, Santa Cruz's the Devil Makes Three infuse their country-bluegrass swing with a raucous punk spirit. A popular group on the festival circuit, the trio spins its odes to Tennessee whiskey and brawling with acoustic guitar, banjo, and stand-up bass  an economical set-up that makes for some surprisingly danceable music. Lead singer Pete Bernhard's voice is a little rough around the edges, but the group's harmonies go down smooth. Too restless to play the typical bluegrass venues and too musically sophisticated for your average bar band, Devil Makes Three are a rare breed: wild traditionalists.
-Hybrid Magazine
Nimble lyricallity and braggadocio that puts most rap acts to shame.

-J. Poet, SF Weekly
The Devil Makes Three doesn't have a drummer, but the band doesn't need one. Cooper McBean's percussive banjo accents and Lucia Turino's forceful slaps on her bass supply more than enough rhythm. Guitarist and lead singer Pete Bernhard completes the trio with a bluesy vocal style that's part Louis Prima, part Merle Haggard. The group has been carving a niche since arriving on the scene six years ago, with a sound that combines bluegrass, old-time music, folk, rockabilly, and Piedmont blues and ragtime, all played with a blazing punk-rock attitude.

Oakland Tribune - Jim Harrington
The Devil Makes Three has been able to attract such a comparatively eclectic fan base -- which includes Deadheads, bluegrass barflies, old-school string-band afficionados and, yes, even a few punk rockers -- by keeping the music straightforward and uncomplicated.
