Guitarist Tim Reynolds and TR3 to perform at Buffalo State PAC

STAFF REPORTS

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Dave Matthews Band lead guitarist Tim Reynolds is back on the road this fall with his group, TR3, featuring Reynolds, bassist Mick Vaughn, and drummer Dan Martier. 

The electric power trio, led by two-time Grammy nominee Reynolds, brings its nationwide fall tour to Buffalo State for a show at the Performing Arts Center on Saturday, November 3, at 8:00 pm. Tickets are $35 for the lower tier and $30 for upper tier. Buffalo State faculty and staff can receive a $3 discount, and Buffalo State students can purchase $15 “student rush” tickets one hour before show time, if tickets are still available. Tickets go on sale Thursday, September 13, at 9:00 a.m. 

With a musical career spanning more than 35 years, 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, Virginia, 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. 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 chance meeting in 2007 with two talented musicians, bass player Mick Vaughn and drummer Dan Martier, Reynolds decided to resurrect the electric TR3 and they’ve been touring ever since. In 2009 their first studio CD, Radiance, was nominated for Home Grown Music Network’s Album of the Year, and TR3 released their first double live CD, From SPACE and Beyond, in June 2011. 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 catalog of new material.

Tickets can be purchased online, at the box office, or by calling (716) 878-3005.
