Third Endeavor formed at Principia College in 1998--then known as Evolution. Beginning band members were Jonathan Hess (keyboards), Chris Thorn (guitar and vocals), Kenny Marr (drums) and Joel Belmont (guitar and vocals). As with the concept of 'evolution', the band evolved over the years to their eventual core group of Hess, Belmont, and Melinda Kernc (lead vocals). Four years after the band started, it had now evolved into Third Endeavor, and cut a record on the indy label River Road Records. Much of their time performing was during those college years, and thereafter for a short tour in LA, playing the likes of the Whiskey a Go Go, where Jim Morrison and countless others played. These days finds the band in reclusion... with new works in progress for release sometime in 2006/07.
