311 In Concert
The Nebraska-based 311 got started in the early 1990s. In 1995, their "311" record with the popular song, "All Mixed Up" became a big hit.
"Don't Tread on Me" from the 2005 album of the same name is one of my favorites (I also love "Speak Easy" from this same record).
311's sound is very unique. Their music can be calming and soothing, and also very intense, exciting and vibrant.
Doug "SA" Martinez also provides vocals, and is a very energetic performer, constantly moving about the stage.
Tim Mahoney is on guitar, Chad Sexton plays the drums, and Aaron "P-Nut" Wills plays the bass guitar. They all clearly enjoy what they are doing.
The decal and picture of the band shown here are from 311's great 2009 album, "Uplifter."
I listen to music all the time these days, and I often check out Internet-based radio stations. I frequently visit Pandora Radio, and there I have set up a 311 Radio station. Pandora selects songs that it thinks you may like based on your music preferences. This has expanded my horizons quite a bit (here I found a great song called "Your Face" by Pepper).
