Staff Report

Third Eye Blind, an alternative rock band that achieved commercial success in the late 1990s, is coming to the Chumash Casino Resort’s Samala Showroom at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 16.

At the peak of their success, Third Eye Blind topped the charts with multi-platinum hits “Semi-Charmed Life,” “Jumper” and “How’s It Going To Be.”

Formed in 1993 in San Francisco by musicians and songwriters Stephan Jenkins and Kevin Cadogan, the band recorded its first demo in 1993 and second demo in 1994 with additional band members.

The band’s third demo was recorded with funds from RCA Records in 1995 and resulted in the band gaining major label attention, including that of producer Clive Davis, the founder and president of Arista Records.

In 1996, the band signed a major label recording contract with Electra Records, reportedly the largest publishing deal ever for an unsigned artist. The band released their self-titled debut album in 1997.

The band currently consists of Jenkins, Hargreaves, Kryz Reid (lead guitar), Alex Kopp (keyboards) and Alex LeCavalier (bass guitar). This lineup recorded the band’s fifth studio album, “Dopamine,” in 2015 and the 2016 EP “We Are Drugs.” Their cover song EP “Thanks for Everything” was released in August.

In the late 1990s their “Third Eye Blind” and “Blue” were certified six times platinum and platinum, respectively, in the U.S.

Tickets are $69, $74, $79, $89 and $99, available at the casino or at
