3 in Counting
3 in Counting came together in 2005 when Mike Hayes came home for the summer from Western Illinois University. While at college he had written some songs and wanted to jam, so he called up his two friends Eric Csukor (keyboard) and Evan Behmer (drums). Pleased with how they sounded, yet realizing they were missing a bass player, they dubbed themselves 3 In Counting. Eventually they met Rob Kletsky (bass) by chance at a party, and he became the fourth member of the band. Along with their easygoing personalities, 3IC offers a sound that connects with fans of all age groups, Influenced by jazz, heavy metal and lyric-rich acoustic rock, and inspired by the likes of Dave Matthews Band, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sublime and 311, the band gives listeners a unique blend of sounds. 3 In Counting has a strong stage show with major energy and personality, and takes pride in having a blast on stage. As a rock/pop/jam band, certain things are improvised on stage, pushing the envelope of acoustic pop music with doses of jazz influenced piano, bright funky bass lines, heavy drum beats, upbeat guitar and undeniable vocals. It is this kind of crowd appeal that the band believes helps them continually draw new fans.
