Tim Reynolds TR3 w/ Pernikoff Brothers
With a musical career spanning more than thirty-five years, guitarist, sonic innovator, and two time Grammy nominee Tim Reynolds is known for his masterful command of melody and timing and for his uncanny ability to improvise on any instrument he touches. Having explored most musical styles, from rock, jazz and blues to classical and reggae, Reynolds’ wide-ranging musical versatility is evident each time he picks up his electric or acoustic guitar. Technically brilliant, yet emotionally honest, Reynolds’ music is inspired and authentic.
It was in the mid 1980s in Charlottesville, VA, when Reynolds founded his breakthrough electric power trio, TR3 (Tim Reynolds Trio), known for their fusion of funk, rock, and jazz. He toured with TR3 during the 1980s and 1990s, using a rotating cast of musicians. It was at this time he befriended Dave Matthews and their ongoing musical collaboration began. Tim eventually decided to relocate to Santa Fe, NM, and pursue a solo career. His musical progression continued throughout his many years on the road as a solo guitar wizard, playing for packed houses and to crowds who quickly determined that Reynolds is one of the most talented and thoughtful musicians on the circuit today.
After a number of years in New Mexico, Reynolds relocated to the Outer Banks of North Carolina in 2007. After a chance meeting with two talented musicians, bass player Mick Vaughn and drummer Dan Martier, a few rehearsals later and several stealth appearances throughout North Carolina, Reynolds decided to resurrect the electric TR3 and they’ve been touring ever since. TR3 released their first double live CD, “From SPACE and Beyond” in June 2011. In 2009, their first studio CD “Radiance” was nominated for Home Grown Music Network’s Album of the Year. Electric, funky, operatic, edgy…their show is a mix of updated Reynolds’ classics to wild covers of everything from James Brown, Led Zeppelin, King Crimson and Focus to TR3’s ever-evolving catalogue of new material.
In 2011, the Pernikoff Brothers released their self-produced debut album “On My Way” (named Top 10 CDs of 2011 in PlaybackSTL), toured the country, making appearances at the Austin City Limits, CMJ & Sandestin Music Festivals, opened for Willie Nelson, Tim Reynolds of the Dave Matthews Band, G. Love and Toots & the Maytals. They were also named one of St. Louis’s Best Opening Acts of 2011.
The Pernikoff Brothers sound marries the inventiveness and energy of My Morning Jacket with the brotherly magic of the Avetts. Tom, Rick and drummer/vocalist Dan Germain will their second record, produced by Brian Deck (Iron & Wine, Modest Mouse, Counting Crows), in early 2013! ?
