Triple Down Theory
Ed Miller: Guitar and vocals

Marty Robinson: Drums

Formed in 2013, Triple Down Theory is the brainchild of Ed Miller, who has been playing in California rock and roll bands since the ‘60s, and for the past 10 years with the Central Coast ‘60s rock and roll band, Unfinished Business. Ed (guitar and vocals) continues to perform with Unfinished Business, but formed the early classic rock power trio Triple Down Theory so that he, along with two other top notch and like-minded musicians, Marty Robinson (drums) and Evan Hiney (bass and vocals), could have the additional enjoyment of a project focusing on great songs by The Beatles, Jeff Beck, Chuck Berry, Eric Clapton, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Eagles, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bryan Adams, Dick Dale, Duane Eddy, Focus, Free, Jimi Hendrix, Freddie King, Led Zeppelin, Gary Moore, Tom Petty, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, Carlos Santana, Ten Years After, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Joe Walsh, The Who, ZZ Top, J Geils Band, Doobie Brothers, Bryan Adams, The Eagles, and several other iconic guitar-driven rock and roll acts of the ‘60s, ‘70s, and '80s.

So there you have it: Triple Down Theory, a band working on the theory that three (triple) “mature” guys can still stretch their talents and “get down” playing some great tunes, many of which you might not otherwise hear performed live on the local music scene. And the responses from Central Coast audiences thus far have been very gratifying and resounding- they love Triple Down Theory!
