Third Eye Blind is a band that consists of Stephan Jenkins (vocals, guitar), Brad Hargreaves (drums, percussion), and Tony Fredianelli (guitar, vocals).
They have played a number of charity gigs, including concerts for the Tiger Woods Foundation and the Breathe Benefit Concert in Los Angeles after Jenkins’ mother was diagnosed with breast cancer.
The band landed on national headlines during a surf session when they were filmed by paparazzi while rescuing a group of kids caught in a rip current off the beaches of North Carolina. This lifeguard incident came with a special twist, as it occurred after the band had just performed a benefit show in support of the NC Transgender community’s efforts to defeat the odious HB2 legislation.
They’ve made appearances for charitable organizations like “Make Room,” Children’s Hospitals, and PETA. Stephan is a strong supporter of the Jimmy Miller foundation, a project especially close to Stephan’s heart where Stephan shares surfing with active duty Marines and Vets afflicted with PTSD.
“We have always had that punk ethos of ‘say what you mean no matter what’ and ‘show up when you are needed,’” says Jenkins. “I think that is more true of us now than ever. We haven’t gotten soft at all.”
