The Casual Fridays have an energetic live show with music that will make you want to tap your toes and get up and skank. When it comes to ska, they serve it up raw with an energetic punch!

Derrick Harris
Pecan Grill & Brewery – At 21, Derrick began stirring up quite a commotion, which led to his becoming a regular facet in the local music scene. In 2000 Derrick returned to his native Texas where he began to regularly write and jam with local musicians whose interests were more in tune with his own. It wasn’t long after that a chance meeting brought together the members of 3am Live. Today he continues to create soulfully rich ballads and powerful guitar-driven music that is reminiscent of the legends of the past and inspirational to the musicians of the future.
