3 Peas, based in Fort Collins, Colorado marry jazz philosophy with soul-slappin’ funk, exploring reggae, hip-hop, and Afro-Cuban break beats. These influences craft the rhythmic potency and contagious groove that defines their sound. Founded in 2002 from the fusion of Joe Prinzivalli’s thick, melodious bass, with the raw, elegant keys and of Vincent Denis, within a cornucopia of cross-cultural, percussive expressions from Evan Carroll, this three-piece ensemble delivers a unique, infectious experience that appeals to a diverse audience. In a few months, 3 Peas expanded their fan base like wild fire across the Front Range of Colorado, drawing venues to capacity, consistently. Through regular practice and gigs, opening for national acts* or headlining regional venues, 3 Peas have evoked attention from various press outlets, record distributors, and numerous fans.
