UNR3 is a 3-piece version of UNRB... UNRB is a 7-piece band from St. Petersburg, FL. The band contains very unorthodox instrumentation, using an electric ukulele instead of a guitar and featuring a powerful 4-piece horn section that routinely switches instruments between songs. Their music touches almost every genre including ska, rock, funk, blues, jazz, reggae, polka, even some classical… nothing is off limits. Their live shows are extremely high-energy and often include brief humorous banter in between songs. With this combination of explosive sound and electrifying stage presence, UNRB quickly established itself in the Tampa Bay area and built a loyal fan base.
