The alternative rock band 311 have established a legion of loyal fans who thrive, much like the band, on intense live performances. The band can generate a serious rush of positive energy on stage that fills the venue and vivifies the crowd. Fans thrive off of this dynamism. This is a reason why the band can sell out venues, night after night, without a new single on the air or a recent album to promote. This live aspect coupled with 311’s absolute originality, its refusal to veer away from their natural creative evolution, the formidable quality of their studio production and the uplifting, unity-fueled world view that fills the band's lyrics make 311 one of the more prominent alternative rock bands around. The five members of the group and their fans demonstrate that a deep synergy and a rich symbiosis can be unearthed between musicians and listeners over time, making all the members of 311 much more than mere entertainers.
