”3upFront is by far one of the hardest working band’s I’ve EVER met, how they’re not
signed to a label yet is beyond me. Great energy and stage presence, they work well with the
audience to put on an awesome show every time!” Hakeem Draper – The Boogie Shack

3upFront started out as a couple buddies; Adam, Dave, Brodie and Jake, jamming out at the
drummers parents house in Kings Beach, CA, on the shores of beautiful Lake Tahoe, in 1998.
Playing house parties and at local bars,3upfront quickly started to gain popularity on the
shores of Kings Beach and all around Lake Tahoe and surrounding areas.

In late 2000 3upFront decided to move to Santa Cruz to further pursue their music career in a
more central location; 5 hours to LA and 2 hours to the Bay! In late 2002 Brodie left the band.

In March of 2006, after 4 more bass players, Santa Cruz local, Mr. Fish joined the band.
EVERY weekend, usually leaving Friday mid-day or after a full day of work and returning around 3am Monday morning; 3upfront would load up and leave the sunny beaches of Santa Cruz, for the smoke-filled, drink-stained, glass-broken, pedals-ruined world that is underground Skatepunk!!

For the next four-and-a-half years straight, 3upFront would embark on D.I.Y tours all over
California, Nevada and Arizona at places like The Catalyst, The Doll Hut, The Roxy, Club
Underground, Blake’s on Telegraph and so many hundreds of others. They were able to share the stage with such acts as: The Circle Jerks, Guttermouth, The VooDoo Glow Skulls, The
Aggrolites, Dr. Know, D.I., T.S.O.L., FEAR, Agent Orange, Unwritten Law, The Ataris, Smut
Peddlers, FANG, Psychosomantic, The Lonely Kings, The MOB, Anti-Social, Jetlag, Fury 66,
The Expendables, Ribsy’s Nickel, Hate for State, United Defiance, The Lucky Ejits, Hero’s at
Gunpoint, Who’s Holden, Honest Mistake, The Devil Himself and so many others!!

Gaining popularity all over the West Coast, 3upFront released their 3rd Studio album, “and
Jake” in 2008, selling well over 2500 copies!! Shortly after they released their 2nd live album; “Live at the Cat” in 2009. In late 2010, after 12 years, Jake, left the band, and was replaced by a friend and local Santa Cruz musician, Jesse.

In May 2011 at the last Your Music Magazine Rock Olympics 3upFront would go on to win
1st place, and over 3K in prizes including $1500 worth of recording time. After all said and done that $1500 would equal 48 hours in the studio.

In June 2011 3upFront would recorded drums, bass and guitar for all 19 tracks on the newest
album “Puppets and Psychiatrists” in 48 hours. They then finished the vocals shortly after
successfully funding a Kickstarter campaign in late 2012. Due to three more drummers not
working out, the new album is yet to be released, though the release date is rapidly approaching!!
