The Three Car Garage Band

Three Car Garage is a guitar driven rock band based in Pittsburgh. It was founded by Tom Lagi in the mid ’90s. There were a few personnel changes early on, the first of which brought drummer Eric Storer into the mix. Then the final change was bringing in bassist Bill Weigand. Both Eric & Bill had worked with Lagi in a former band so they were very familiar with each others playing. This happened in the summer of 1998, and it completed the lineup as it currently stands.
