The Devil Makes Three quite possibly are the best band that you have never heard of. Constantly on tour, selling out dates across the country and in their neck of the woods on the West Coast, this band is busy packing their shows night after night, largely thanks to word of mouth.
Over the past 7 years, The Devil Makes Three have garnered fans the old school way – playing a city, making friends, conquering fans and moving on. When they hit the next town, venues are packed with folks that heard from a friend in a city that the band had played before. Because of this, The Devil Makes Three have established thousands of die-hard and devout fans.
“Do Wrong Right” OUT on Milan Records on NOW!
On March 24th, The Devil Makes Three released the “Aces and Twos” 7″ of two songs SIDE A: Aces and Twos and SIDE B: Help Yourself exclusively on a limited edition 500-quantity, hand-numbered 7″.
“From the musical gumbo pot of slide guitar, harmonica, and tenor banjo on their self-titled debut, it’s hard to believe that Devil aren’t from some backwoods swamp. Nevertheless, songs like “Old Number Seven” mix buoyant acoustic guitars and booze-drenched lyrics for a potent concoction of hangover music…With their raucous, energetic live set, the combination has definitely proven successful – all the while appealing to surprisingly disparate crowds.”

Quotes and Quotes:
“…not as polka-folk-psychedelic as anticipated, rather using elements of a grandiose orchestral experience and coupling it with acoustic guitar to produce a precise and melodic sound.”
“The Devil Makes Three doesn’t have a drummer, but the band doesn’t need one….. a sound that combines bluegrass, old-time music, folk, rockabilly, and Piedmont blues and ragtime, all played with a blazing punk-rock attitude.”
“Although they’re an acoustic outfit, their adrenaline-fueled mélange of ragtime, folk, blues and primitive country has won them fans of all ages from grandparents to grandkids.”
Like the Violent Femmes before them, Santa Cruz’s the Devil Makes Three infuse their country-bluegrass swing with a raucous punk spirit….Devil Makes Three are a rare breed: wild traditionalists.”
“the gypsy-folk, pirate-camp and whiskey-whore sound of The Devil Makes Three is a welcome addition to this under-appreciated sub-genre.”
