3rdMAN is a pop rock band that started about 5 years ago formed by singer/songwriter Jo de Roeck. Jo writes his songs in an acoustic setting and during the bands repetitions these will be transformed into sturdy rocksongs.
During this relatively short period of time the band has earned a very good reputation as live band. 2012 to 2016 they have played as the opening act for Golden Earring. Furthermore they have opened for acts like: Kane, DI-RECT, Richie Kotzen and Thunder. They have played in Paradiso, 013, ’t Paard van Troje, Heineken music hall and Tivoli. After releasing one album, one EP and four singles on their own they have now released their official Debut album. The pre-production was done by the legendary producer Shell Schellekens (Twilight Zone, Golden Earring). The final production was in the hands of Ocki Klootwijk from Rock Town Studios, Rotterdam.
Led by Ocki Klootwijk the band has managed to create their own distinct sound both on their album and live. 3rdMAN builds on the tradition of British rock bands like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and The Beatles but combines this in their own way with an Americana sauce.
To live up the quality of the album during their live performances the band has recently added guitarist Toni Sprokk and drummer Jochem Jautze tot heir band.
