Pete Bernhard, frontman of the Devil Makes Three announces West Coast dates

West Coast dates performing songs from his forthcoming solo debut Straight Line

Out on Milan Records on September 15th

After opening for Sea Sick Steve in NYC last week, Pete’s solo performances are a far bit different from his primary band but one key element remains the same – his defining vocal style, unique phrasing and his distinctive point of view.

Dates after the jump…

All the while, The Devil Makes Three “Do Wrong Right” continues to gain momentum

After selling out shows all across the country via word of mouth from fans and friends, Do Wrong Right garners its 16th straight week on in the Top 10 of the Billboard Bluegrass Charts and the album continues to sell strongly each week

The album holds steadily in heavy rotation the college charts along with charting on the Americana/Jamband Chart

The Devil Makes Three Live @ KEXP was released digitally on 8.11.

The EP includes four tracks played live in the studio of the famous Seattle based radio station and an interview.

The Devil Makes Three kicks off their Fall tour with gigs at Bumbershoot and Earthdance Peace Festival.

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.

Quotes and Quotes:

Venus.zine- 5 out of 5

“The Santa Cruz–based threesome borrows elements of ragtime, country, folk, and rockabilly music and approaches them with a fiery punk rock proclivity, creating a modern but true reflection of vintage American blues.”

Under the Radar: 7 out of 10

“…like the best bourbon, Do Wrong Right will go down smooth, and then help to steer the rest of your day”

Eastern Surf Mag:

“Punk-tinged, whiskey-fueled, old-timey/bluegrass/ragtime blend from this percussion-less Santa Cruz, CA, trio. Charmingly ragged vocal harmonies and a legendary live show only add to the band’s allure.”


“The Devil Makes Three play a tongue-in-cheek form of American roots music, bucking genre conventions with lyrics that trend toward atypical subjects like crack abuse and getting your picture taken with the Four Horsemen.”

Hear Ya:

“The Devil Makes Three has just released the latest chapter of their gypsy-punk-hillbilly-bluegrass-blues gospel in an album called Do Wrong Right. That description is a mouthful, but DM3 is far from ordinary. The drummer-less trio consists of guitarist/frontman Pete Bernhard, stand-up bassist Lucia Turino and guitarist Cooper McBean. Their sound is driven by rhythm and three-part harmonies that beg you to boogie down, even if you aren’t the boogie down type.”


“If we’re going to get through this so-called “New Depression,” we’re going to need some troubadours to sing our survival tales. The Devil Makes Three fit that bill perfectly on latest offering Do Wrong Right (released April 21 on Milan Records), giving voice to those firewater nights that bleed into the horrendous crash of daylight, splitting headaches and tremors before we pick ourselves up to do it all over again.”
