Information About this Event
XEB brings together ex original members of Third Eye Blind. Kevin Cadogan, Tony
Fredianelli and Arion Salazar's contributions span 17 years of the band’s history.
Cadogan, who was a signatory to Third Eye Blind's Elektra record deal, performed lead
guitar and composed the music to 10 of the 14 songs on 3eb’s 1997 Self Titled debut
album which sold 6x platinum. Cadogan also composed the music to 6 songs on 3eb’s
2x platinum selling sophomore album 'Blue' including the fan favorite "Wounded".
Cadogan has been hailed as a Master Innovator by Guitar Player Magazine and toured
from ’96-’99 performing his co-authored radio hits "How's It Going To Be", "Graduate",
and "Losing A Whole Year".
In San Francisco 1993/94, they wrote and performed under the name Third Eye Blind
until Fredianelli exited the band that same year, but not before contributing musical
production elements to songs on the debut such as "Motorcycle Drive By" and the hit
"Semi Charmed Life". Fredianelli later contributed his signature backing vocals and
guitar, ushering in a new sound for Third Eye Blind that carried through the fourth
album. Fredianelli composed the music to many songs on the certified gold album 'Out
Of The Vain'. His co-authored radio hits include “Blinded”, “Non-Dairy Creamer” and
2009’s “Bonfire” from the #1 selling album 'Ursa Major'.
Grammy nominated Bassist and composer Arion Salazar co-wrote many songs
(credited and un-credited) throughout the band’s career including the hit “Never Let You
Go” along with other fan favorites spanning the bands career. Salazar is credited as a
producer on Third Eye Blind's 'Blue' and 'Out Of The Vein' albums and is known for his
signature use of double/effected bass tracking and vintage keyboards
