Three on a Strings is one of Alabama’s most beloved bands and have been entertaining audiences in the Untied States and Canada for decades. In 2021, Three on a String celebrated 50 years in the entertainment business, a remarkable feat in today’s fast changing society.
Jerry and Bobby performed as a duet for one show at Horse Pens 40 near Steel, AL in 1971. George Pruitt, a big band music veteran suggested they add a bass and thus Three on a String was born. Three on a String have opened for Presidents George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan and several Alabama Governors. This eventually evolved into performances with symphony orchestras in several states including a nine city tour with the Alabama Symphony, opening for Bill Cosby, Red Skelton, Barbara Mandrel, Jeff Foxworthy, George Lindsey, Ray Stevens and many more top stars. Add in concerts for art councils, Chambers of Commerce, Landmark Theatres and city celebrations and you have a busy schedule for these veteran entertainers. Now after over 20,000 performances you have four entertaining guys who have learned their craft and enjoy sharing their talents with each new audience.
As TOAS puts it, “Let’s have some fun!”
