311 | Reviewer: Mike Ives | 3/28/13
I have been a long long time fan of 311 and continue to support their music. They truly love than fans and show it in every show. They have recently completed their third "311 cruise". I have had the pleasure of attending the first and third cruise. The cruise is full of great music and the most amazing fans otherwise known as the "excitable ones".311 is also the only band that has it's own holiday on March 11th. Every even year 311 puts on a multiple hour and sometimes a multiple day celebration for all the excitable ones to enjoy the band and each other. I personally would like to thank 311 for all their hard work. To quote 311 "stay positive and love your life."

I first heard 311 in 1993 a year after I graduated high school. We were driving around bored as we usually did in the burbs of South Jersey. My boy Frank, now deceased, slipped a CD in the head unit and suddenly something magical was pouring out of the speakers and I was like, " yo!, what is this sound man"? It was the first time I ever heard 311, it was the Music CD. It was so refreshing, current, and different they way they were jamming hard rock then all of a sudden slow it down and slip smoothly into a reggae beat. How they were rapping and then would break into a soft-harmonic chorus. Then I really started listiening to the instruments individually and realized that these guys were real musicians, real artsits. Then I studied the lyrics and that was the last staple cementing them as my favorite band. I shared so many of their beliefs, especially the belief to jsut stay positive and avoid the negative energy. 311 becoming my favorite band was no easy feat, as I was a huge fan of Nirvana, Tool, Chili Peppers, Smashing Pumpkins, Fugazi, Soundgarde, Pearl Jam etc... This was the early 90's and these band were already refreshing as they pushed out the rest of the "Hair Bands", the cheezy commercialized heavy metal bands, like Ratt. 311 is still my favorite band today, 20 years later. I've seen them live 4 times (they were even better live)and have turned many people on to them and most people had the same response I did when they first heard them. They are true musical professionals and built their brand as all successful companies do, by word of mouth and consistently producing a superior product! Thank you 311 for your dedication to your craft.

Ever since I heard the song "Down"...I knew I would love 311. Like most music, you have to give it some time and hear a few songs to adjust to the groups sound and individuality. But as I listened to song after song of theres, they just kept getting better and better. And I knew that they were the band for me. Then I fell in love. Besides the mushy stuff, 311 is the best! Seriously the way they mix Jazz, Rock, Reggae, Ska, even a little punk-ish sound is freaking amazing. 311 for life!
New Fan! | Reviewer: Cory | 3/12/09
I don't know what rock I've been under for the last 10+ years but a friend recently introduced me to 311 and I'm in love. Rock is typically not my first choice of music, but I'm diggin' their style!
Best tunes on earth....... | Reviewer: Brad Smith | 10/3/07
If i'm having a bad day, great day, i'll always listen to three eleven no matter what every song always makes my day so much better. Really what the band needs is a spot on the radio no matter where you are, if you turn the station to 311.0 you get the 311 station lol that would be the shit!!
311!!!!!!!! | Reviewer: uglydrew | 4/5/07
yes most midwest (NE IA KS) musicians tend to stick with a jazz influenced style, as you can tell with 311...its what we grew up listening to and its all they teach how to play in the schools...at least in omaha and lincoln. im trying to get my own band going and 311 has inspired me as i fell in love with them at age ten when i first heard them...i would love to see some more bands like 311 with such a unique style and much musical talent...maybe some day i'll be lucky enough to sing/tour with them
