About

We are a power trio who play familiar and not so familiar material.(Different!!) Our repertoire contains a wide selection of classic and blues/rock covers. The musicianship is delivered with passion and 110% full on. We try to cater for either a more classic rock audience or blus/rock audience or whatever is preferable to the venue.

We are all very experienced musicians who are in it for the fun and have in our youth, shared stages with both the famous and the unsung heroes.So come along and just enjoy our music over a pint or two!!
Expect some improvisation and spontaneity because we are... The Power 3!!






REVIEW:17/9/2011
Its not often that I bother to watch bands these days,usually boring and thrash thrash and a wall of din.But I found myself at a pub last week and when I walked in there was a proper tasty bit of gear on the stage looking like a DW kit in natural finish and an array of paiste cymbals so I decided to stay,at least to hear what the drummer was like.

I asked the landlord what the name of the band was and was informed THE POWER 3

And so as the name implied 3 guys promptly kicked off at 9.30pm.The drummer opened the first song with a real tasty syncopated fill and I knew I was going to be educated!!!
The guitarist playing a Strat and Les Paul played with great skill and at times raw aggression but at all times controlled dynamics.On bass was Earl who not only played a tight groove with the drummer but also expressed himself with virtuosity.
To add to the sheer proficiency of musicianship,the band had excellent vocals with the guitarist providing a contrast to the soul influenced vocals of the bassist.

Musically,this band has it all,even their choice of material is different and not the usual "boring"
expectation you are likely to get on todays pub scene.Thanks guys for a great night out. I stayed until the end,(which is rare!!) and I'll be checking you guys out again. Cheers Amadeus

Review 14/11/2011
My third trip up to the Bottom Bull in as many months and again it was well worth the effort.
The band have had a couple of rave reviews on here of late including one from Rick of the 45's who saw them at Barnstormers on Friday .

The set is largely what I'd describe as 70's blues/rock ( think Gallagher/ ZZ Top etc) but also includes rock and soul classics such as Superstition, Hard To Handle, Radar Love, Black Betty, Whisky In The Jar. It was amazing to hear a three piece play 'Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City' and make it sound as though there were twice as many men on stage!

Both lead and bass players took vocal duties and yeah - that bass man got soul!
Favourite track of the night has to be their version of the Beatles 'Drive My Car' funked and blues'd up something rotten LOL! ( Possibly based on the Humble Pie version? - even so better than that even - why didn't I record it , damn!).

Definitely going to see these boys again.


"Some of the best demo’s I’ve heard of recent times with great vocals too!"

‘DR BOBS’ BLUES NIGHT 17th November/2012.

THE POWER 3.

The POWER 3 played their blues at this ‘new venue’ promoting Live Blues music. The band from the Northwest of England has risen like a Phoenix from the ashes of former bands, and decided to get together and create the POWER3, and as it turns out it wasn’t a bad idea at all. The band have an extensive repertoire of the blues spanning the decades, some of which I hadn’t heard for a while such is the bands commitment in bringing something different to the table. This splendid trio of musicians cracked off with “Rock‘N’Roll Hoochie Coo” a Johnny Winter number, followed by covers from, B. B. King, T Bone Walker, Freddie King, Muddy Waters, Popa Chubby, Bobby Bland, John Mayall, and more, a catalogue of the blues, and given the treatment by the bands lead singer and bassist, Jeff Earl Jones, just brilliant, and a blues voice to treasure. Not to be out done step forward Phil Grundy on lead guitar/slide guitar, just exceptional playing, he exchanged the lead vocals with Jeff to give him a bit of a breather, and with a bit of jovial banter throughout the show it just flowed effortlessly. The other half of this impressive rhythm section was Ray Wong making his drum kit hum with delight another very experienced musician. The second set from the band was as cracking as the first with “La Grange” from ZZ Top, “Romance Classified” by Buddy Whittington, an old favourite from Jimi Hendrix” Red House” “Spoonful” the Willie Dixon hit “Crossroads” By Robert Johnson/Cream and “Looking Back” by John Mayall, all sung by Phil. The Power 3 as a Blues band have only been together for approximately 18 months and are a band that will give you a show to relish. So the next time you hear of them playing at a gig near you go and have a listen I’m confident you won’t be disappointed. (No pressure then guys, no pressure.)Thank you.

Keith Blackledge.
