The 3rd Degree is a blues band from Southern California.  Its main purpose is to keep the blues flame alive! The tradition of the blues is one of the most vital links to almost every form of modern popular music being performed today . Historically the blues is no doubt the most powerful music in America, given that it gets virtually no airplay on radio or TV formats, but still is being played in every bar, juke, nightclub, casino, and arena or festival.  And the funny thing about it, this is true all over the world. So the blues journey continues from Africa to America to England to Japan to Baghdad.  It’s the story of life!
