3C presents: Emerson, Lake & Palmer Reloaded
"If there is anybody knowing anything about my music, it’s them" (Keith Emerson)
3C is Colò, Canonici & Carlini, three childhood friends who turned professional in the music world. 3C wanted for years to form an Emerson, Lake & Palmer’s tribute band, but life brought them to different parts of the world. Eventually (better late than never!) they did it with great success. The late Keith Emerson heard the band, loved the concept hence decided to endorse 3C with a video presentation which is shown in the concert. Keith has actually even named the band! 3C is in fact the name Mr Emerson came up with, based on each band member’s initials.
