Saw Scott and the guys in LA and they put on a great show with authentic blues. Band puts on a funky groove and dedicated to the Blues.
I booked the group for my dad's surprise 85th birthday party. They arrived in plenty of time to setup and be ready to start exactly on time. My dad and everyone in attendance truly enjoyed their music.
The guys are very nice a friendly.
Talk about life of the party. I was fortunate enough to celebrate my 30th birthday this year. And for my party my wife had discovered the musical stylings of The 3B Blues band. Whether they're playing for a crowd of a thousand or a crowd of 30, these boys are tried, true, and blue "Players". I was just complimented twice today about the blues band that I had at my party last month. (Sorry for the review delay fellas). That means a month later, the raw, soulful sounds reminiscent of Ol' Chicago, Mississippi and Louisiana still resonate throughout our little Southern California neighborhood. Blues music is America's classical music and the 3B blues band knows how to do it right.
This band brought the party to life. I have read the reviews and had really high expectations. They exceeded my expectations easily. Their music was enjoyed by our seniors, the adult sons and daughters and the very young grandchildren. Their appeal is universal. Arranging the gig was a very easy and professional transaction. I highly recommend this band. I also plan to use them again for future events.
Saw these cats at Hinano cafe in Venice last. Sounded great. Great show
These boys were fantastic!!! They responded very quickly and were easy to get a hold of. They were willing to work within our budget and tailored the music to our specific event. They had our party goers out of their seats and dancing in no time. 3B had a great presence and engaged the audience. I would definitely have them back. They made our Mardi Gras event the most memorable party in years! You should definitely hire this band. You won't be disappointed!

What to Expect
We have our own unique sound with our 4 piece lineup and blend Hammond B3 Organ sounds with funky rhythms and greasy guitar. We setup easy using award winning DreamStage sound system and can play any size room and dress up appropriately. We were very sad to have lost our friend and substitute bassist Paul from complications from diabetes and still feature him in some of our videos. Our current and long term bassist is Ray Brundidge who previously toured with James Brown band. Lead Guitarist is currently Danny Diaz but we also have featured Carlos De La Paz and Jim Adams who are on many videos. On hammond B3 organ, vocals and guitar is Scott Hrebek and also on videos is our late drummer Louis Guillory. We are pleased to flay with new drummer JP and also feature Shari Wilson and Nikki Turner on vocals as needed when variety songlist is requested and have some videos. We work within a reasonable budget to bring you the best entertainment.
1) OMG!!! Attended my sons 30th birthday party, this bands vibe was so smooth, I hated for it to end, and I'm still getting complements. This band will definitely be in my little black book for future parties and get togethers. what a great group of guys.
2)"The 3B Band made our wedding reception a huge success. Everyone wanted to know, "Where did you find these guys?" and our wedding photographer told me that this was the best wedding band he had ever heard. Not only would I highly recommend these guys for any function, party, festival or celebration, I highly recommend checking them out whenever you can find them playing gigs around town. They really know how to work the crowd. They were so personable and friendly through the whole experience, I feel like I have my own personal blues band and friends for life. Thanks Louis and Scott for making my wedding so special."
3) "The 3B Band made our community event a total success. We love them and highly recommend them to others. " "I think they offer the best bang for the buck. They're very enthusiastic and are very accommodating to requests. It's also nice to see people really enjoying what they do and enjoy being at your event. They performed at our neighborhood block party and I would recommend them for any kind of event where you need music that appeals to a broad age group."
4) "The band exceeded all expectations!!!! This band should be performing in Night Clubs...I'm surprised they were available. Can't wait until we have our next party. All my guests were very impressed. Thanks again for a memorable time."
5) "The Band was awesome, They even arrived early. They are the best Blues Band I've heard. They even let my friend play his harmonica with them on stage. Wow!!! 10 Thumbs up!!"
