Born in the underground of Brick City, the "3rd & jam" is a Neo-Soul R&B band based out of Newark, New Jersey in the United States. The band consists of a five piece funk phenomenon with original live instrumentation at its core of originality and performance.
The band's guiding mantra is...
"Every musical measure is a source of auditory pleasure"!
What inspired our music?
Acid Jazz groups such as the Brand New Heavies and Soul II Soul has had a major influence on the musical sound and magic the "3rd & jam" creates. We would be remised not to include the musical genius of Prince, Eryka Badu and the early years of Jill Scott as a guiding force in creating our rough but smooth musically diverse live studio and soulful sounding recordings.
