Founding members Dave Montanari and Adam Pierce joined forces on the shores of Lake Tahoe in 1998 to form 3 Up Front. The band became popular in the Tahoe area over the next couple of years, but in 2000 it was time for a change, which brought the group down to Santa Cruz. Ever since they’ve been rocking the area with their alternative punk sounds. They also embarked on an epic four and a half year tour that took them all around California and Nevada. In 2011 they won first place in the Your Music Magazine Music Olympics and released their fourth album.
