The story of Greater Than Three is the story of three friends. They just haven’t always known each other …..
Denny Menter …
… has been playing music since he was 10 years old. Like many kids of his era, he spent time in his room listening to the guitar idols of the day – Clapton, Hendrix, Van Halen – trying to figure out how those sounds were made. In his 20’s and early thirties he performed in numerous area bands. Pausing for a few years while he and his wife raised their children, he picked up the guitar again and has since fallen back in love with music X2.
Playing his cherished Bischoff acoustic and various electric guitars, he has been part of many musical projects, theater productions and side bands over the last 15 years. Meeting the needs of the moment, he switched to bass a few years ago and has since learned the value and fun of holding down a solid bottom with the rhythm section, allowing other musicians the freedom for dynamic performances.
Darrin Senn …
… comes from a very musical family and has been performing from a very young age, ever since his parents would let him out of the house. He grew up listening to Hendrix, Zeppelin, Rush, Black Sabbath, & Van Halen albums.
Darrin is a student of classic rock and blues percussion and a veteran of several area bands, traveling extensively with his groups in his 1969 Greyhound tour bus. He has recorded with local artists, most recently appearing on a 2009 South Farwell album entitled “Tear Everything Down.” He also enjoys playing guitar whenever he gets the chance to get out from behind the kit.
Tim Coughlin …
… lives and breathes guitar. As a child Tim was drawn to the passion and soul of bands like The Doobie Brothers, Loggins & Messina, Elton John and Stevie Ray Vaughn.. He soon set off to forge a passion of his own. Excelling on several instruments, Tim settled on the guitar as the one that most speaks to his vision.
After years of honing his skills, he arrived in Nashville, TN, performing with a number of bands, most notably touring with Chase Rice throughout the US. Returning to his hometown, Tim just “wants to play for anyone who will listen.”
These three musicians have indirectly known each other for years, but never shared a stage. A chance meeting in the summer of 2017 brought the three together, and the chemistry was instant. They love performing some familiar songs, but also enjoy putting their own personalities into some more obscure music from the classic rock and blues genres of the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s.
