The American band Secret Chiefs 3
, which is also simply referred to as 'SC3', is definitely not coy. Dressed like a group of magicians from by-gone days, the musicians produce an awesome live show that may not charm everyone. But for many years, Secret Chiefs 3 has enjoyed great popularity among fans of their daring mix of metal, film music, rock and Afghan folk music. The band is led by Trey Spruance, the former guitarist of Mr Bungle and Faith No More, and has released seven albums. They have also collaborated in Masada 2:The Book of Angels (2005), the project of Artist in Residence John Zorn. With a show that is freaky, sometimes rock hard, but especially enchanting, Secret Chiefs 3 is able to transport its audience into the dark cellars of the musical underworld. During the Jazz Rocks! theme on Saturday on the Yukon stage, SC3 will unleash its demons and shock its audience but also charm them with their magical, improvised show.
