Three’s a Crowd

Grand Rapids – Scott Vander Ark, Sidney Vander Ark (Vocals) Brad Vander Ark

Who Is Three’s a Crowd?

Three’s a Crowd started in 2010 as a two-piece band. That’s why we named it “Three’s a Crowd.” At that time, the band was just me, Scott Vander Ark, on guitars, and Jeff Howard on drums. We played rock and roll music from the 70’s to the present; a good party band playing classic rock tunes. Now and then my daughter Sidney would join the band to sing a few songs.

Adding a female vocalist full-time and adding a bass player would help the band expand its horizons beyond small neighborhood clubs, so it seemed like a natural progression to do just that. I asked my younger brother Brad Vander Ark, a founding member of the Verve Pipe to join us on bass, and asked Sidney to be our lead vocalist. Not only would this round out the band’s sound, but now with four vocalists we could really get into some great harmonies.

At 22 years old, Sidney Vander Ark enjoys singing new rock, dance rock, club rock and her Dad’s favorite classic rock. From high energy party music to sweet love songs, Sidney handles the lead vocals with ease. With Brad on bass, Three’s a Crowd became a fun party band. Although he’s a prolific song writer, it took no time at all to convince Brad to jump back out there and play cover songs with us.

After only 9 months as a group, TAC has made a name for itself as a solid four-piece that loves to play rock music that you can dance to. We’ve played wedding receptions, graduation parties, birthday parties, and charity events, as well as many clubs in and around Grand Rapids, Michigan, and throughout the West Michigan area.

So we’re not just a bar band, but rather a band that can play current hits and classic favorites for many different types of events. We’ve travelled to Grand Haven, Spring Lake, Holland, Muskegon, Kentwood, Cascade, Caledonia, Wyoming, Grandville, Northern Michigan, Southern Michigan, East and West Michigan and all points in between to play great rock music.

Dates in 2012 are going fast. If you need a unique pop/rock band that plays new music as well as classic hits, Three’s a Crowd is your ticket to a great time!

  Introducing Three’s a Crowd:  
Scott Vander Ark (guitar, vocals) has been performing around West Michigan off and on for over 30 years.  He’s dabbled in it all: rock bands, choirs, a capella groups and solo.  By day, Scott is a successful, sought-after tile setter.  Now, after raising a family and facing an empty nest, Scott is again spending his weekends entertaining all over the Grand Rapids area.  Scott describes his time in Three’s a Crowd as ” The most fun I’ve had in a rock & roll band!
Jeff Howard (drums, vocals) has been playing drums for over 30 years in a number of different local groups. He has recorded four full length CDs of original music with previous bands, performing to thousands of people across West Michigan in venues ranging from coffee houses to the Van Andel Arena. Jeff is enjoying a long career at GFS and the good life of being an empty nester with two daughters in college.
Sidney Vander Ark (vocals) has a lifelong passion for music, and has been expressing herself through song her entire life.  She has performed in a number of singing groups, as well as performing solo.  She has been a member of the a capella group, Caroling Company, dazzling crowds with her talents every Christmas.  Employed full-time while attending college full-time, Sidney somehow manages to find a few hours each week to share with Three’s a Crowd.  How she finds the energy to belt out those amazing vocals is anyone’s guess.
  Brad Vander Ark (bass, vocals) played bass in several jazz and rock bands until 1993, when he formed The Verve Pipe, which became one of the most successful rock bands of the late 90’s. From 1999-2005, Brad lived in New York City working as an independent musician, recording, performing and producing albums and live shows with a number of critically acclaimed artists. In addition to performing with Three’s a Crowd, Brad is an accomplished web and graphic designer.   Brad
