Omaha-based creative rock band 311 was founded in 1988. Their style is described as alternative, rap rock, rap metal, funk rock, reggae, and even jazz fusion. 311 likes to keep it fresh apparently. They’re still a lesser known band in their own genre, but they achieved strong commercial success when they released their self-titled third album in 1995. The two before that and the three after did not achieve the same level of success, but their Greatest Hits ‘93-’03 album was a success. In recent years they’ve been partnering with Caribbean Cruises to produce the 311 Cruise, a three or four day cruise voyage that features performances by them and a host of other guest performers. They also celebrate 311 Day, March 11th, every other year with an extremely long concert. In 2012 they performed 79 songs in Las Vegas, having to split it up over two days. 311 comes to FirstMerit Bank Pavilion on Northerly Island on July 11, and Gold Coast Tickets has the best selection of tickets!
