Members: Manny Reyes, Vinny Manno, Robert Manganello and Mike Massel
Former schoolmates Manny Reyes and Vinny Manno formed 3rd echo in 1992 as a vehicle for their mutual admiration of rock. With the help of former bassist/keyboardist Billy Madere 3rd echo was able to record two CDs, and tour non-stop for several years while garnering many friends and fans both at home in New Orleans and throughout the southeast US. But then the unexpected happened, and her name was Katrina. The fallout from the storm resulted in Billy leaving the band, and 3rd echo going into indefinite hiatus. With Billy's blessings Manny and Vinny decided to press on. Enlisting bassist Robert Manganello and guitarist/keyboardist Mike Massel proved to be a magical combination. The newly re-tooled powerpop foursome are creating infectious pop/rock melodies that are the product of muscular rhythms, inventive riffs, and tasty vocal harmonies - certainly a musical blend thats ethereal, yet uncompromisingly sonic.
3rd echo, think about it. Isn't it the one you anticipate the most?
