49: Robert Berry
It’s been awhile since we had a chance to chat with Robert Berry, and he’s been BUSY since last we spoke, to say the least. 3.2 is on tour now, crossing the country and paying tribute to the musical genius of Keith Emerson.. During the conversation we touched on everything from Carl Palmer to what bass strings he uses, to breakfast cereal!
Little did we know that Robert was a fan of Frosted Flakes and to this day plays a Washburn custom bass that Sammy Hagar gave him as a gift. Along the way we learned what they have planned for Progstock coming up in New Jersey and whether or not they’re going to continue along the arc of 3.
The band is made up of Robert, Jimmy Keegan, Paul Keller and Andrew Colyer. Robert talks about just how amazing the band is and how well (and quickly) they came together as a group.
If you get a chance to catch the live show, you owe it to yourself to do so. It has been receiving rave reviews everywhere they’ve performed. For our Wisconsin listeners, they’ll be playing Shank Hall in Milwaukee on October 20.
