CLASSIC ROCK AS IT SHOULD BE

There’s magic that happens when talented musicians who genuinely enjoy each other's company get together to make organized noise. That magic is present in every Triadd performance. Their authentic joy on stage is contagious and picked up by the audience resulting in more fun being had by everyone in the venue.
When’s the last time you saw a cover band perform Life in the Fast Lane by the Eagles, Rockin Down the Highway by the Doobie Brothers, Black Friday by Steely Dan or Dream On by Aerosmith?
Triadd doesn’t play the same songs the vast majority of classic rock cover bands do. They go for the challenging ones requiring expert musicianship coupled with complicated and nuanced vocal harmonies. The result is a refreshing set list of familiar songs you know and love but ‘probably’ haven’t heard live, outside of a concert by the original artist.
If you appreciate classic rock played with passion and precision, look no further than Triadd, you’re gonna like what you hear.

*PETE GUSTAFSON*

Pete’s intro into playing an instrument happened at the age of 9 when he started playing the flute-o-phone – any of you remember those things? This led to playing the cornet in 5th grade which he played for the next 3 years.
All he wanted to do was go to Hersey High School and be in their award winning band but his parents had other plans and off they sent him to St. Viator High School which was not exactly known for its music program.
Devastated though he was, it pushed him to pick up his brothers guitar. The first chord he learned was a D, (any guitar player knows there’s a lot of place’s you can take a D shape on the neck to make some pretty cool sounds). That was it – he was hooked by the D.
Pete’s been in a couple other bands – most recently with 5th Ave., an all original band led by singer/songwriter Erich Kraemer. They cut a CD that’s got some extremely listenable music on it.
Pete’s other musical outlet is performing as a 2nd Tenor with the auditioned choir Chicagoland Voices. Chicagoland Voices is comprised of 50 + members – a large percentage of which are professional musicians – theatre directors, conductors, music teachers, and performers.

Pete plays: Electric and Acoustic  Guitars, Mandolin, Lead and Backup vocals
