For the unfortunate people who don't know who tHrOnE is "Why", you ask "would someone make a page about a band named tHrOnE?" well cause they're the best local band...uh, well anywhere.
tHrOnE is a local band from Haddam,CT that got together in 1995. tHrOnE is composed of lead singer/bassist/song writer Derek Trafton(18), guitarist/co-song writer Justin Millar(19), and drummer Casey Trafton(16). And yes they are all related, Derek and Casey are brothers and Justin is their cousin (or coosin as Derek or Cousin Balkie would say:). They made their first cd in '98-Euphoria, their second in '99-With It EP and their third, newest, and best cd yet, Overthrown was released on June 20th,2000.
One of tHrOnE's biggest breaks was this year @ radio 104 fest, when their manager, Jeff Maker II, convinced the event programmer to let tHrOnE play on the radio 104 stage, instead of the locals stage which they had been originaly scheduled to play on. That show was to unbeleivably awesome, there where chilla's and turtle's and alligator's, oh my! And if that isn't kewl enough for you, in the crowd was Sevendust's Lajon Witherspoon, after the show Derek handed him a copy of 'Overthrown'.
BIG NEWS:: tHrOnE IS GOING TO START RECORDING A NEW CD IN EARLY 2001 ~ see The Band for more...
tHrOnE has gathered a large following in the state of CT. The reason why the people who dig tHrOnE dig them so wholeheartedly is because of their awesome talent, great shows, and totally wEiRd, whacky, and kewl personalities. These guys have fun doing what they're doing. This last show at the Equator on the 3rd was (as I seem to say after every show) aWeSoMe again! there was a really kewl setup(spinning light's, strobes, vanilla scented smoke, and the video hey filmed, etc.)and I realllllllly must say that 'New Army' and 'Meringue" are so awesome they are the best yet! gO aNd SeE!!!
