Formed on the shores of Santa Cruz, Calif., more than a decade ago, Americana outfit The Devil Makes Three played two shows at the Fox Theater Oakland last month, nearly a year after their headlining gig at the historic Bay Area venue (read our review here). The trio, whose sound is equal parts bluegrass, old time, country, folk, blues, jazz, ragtime and rockabilly, rocked a packed house on the second of two nights.
For nearly two hours, fans enjoyed TDMT’s unique sound, a sound which over time has only gotten better. With guitarist Pete Bernhard, upright bassist Lucia Turino and guitarist/tenor banjo player Cooper McBean back at it, the band was on point, sounding well-rehearsed and not stale or bored. TDMT not only played some great music, but also had a fun party vibe that kept everyone dancing during the whole show.
