Contrary to rumor, 3eb is still on the Elektra label. It is not known what will happen in the future though. Stay tuned.
SJ is playing solo with Sugar Ray on July 10 in LA. Here is a link to buy tix:
3eb played a private show on May 1 here in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay. It was awesome! Here are a few pictures:
I'm engaged! Dan proposed last night at the Bellagio during the Sarah Brightman and Andrea Bocelli's "Time to Say Goodbye" fountain show. We were at the Fontana Bar outside on the balcony sipping Pinot Grigio when he dropped on one knee during the song and proposed!
Oh my God!
And the ring is gooorgeous. It is from Simayof in San Francisco and is one of a kind. It has 3 stones, I didn't ask how many carats cos I don't care! But it's big. haha!
No date set yet, but everyone's invited! More news to come soon!
:))))))))))))))))))))) i've got a perma-smile!
Happy New Year everyone!
The band played a couple of private shows over the weekend - one in Vegas and one in Miami. The Vegas show was very very awesome (and much needed for me!) After the show, SJ made mention that the EP is still coming, but that it will have more vocals on it than previously planned (cos the label says so). He said it is basically a full album. There is also other plans in the works that we'll hear more about soon.
SJ is very pumped up about the Work to Ride push on the site and wants everyone to know how near and dear this project is to his heart.
Not much else on the 3eb front so please be patient with the lack of updates. Believe it or not, I don't know everything there is to know about 3eb, so I sometimes miss things. mmk? :)
Here are some pics from Friday night:

SJ's Radio Promo Tour Schedule
I bumped into Tony last week at Starbucks here in Las Vegas, as he was on his way to the studio to record some songs he wrote for himself. Las Vegas really is a small town. Anyhoo! He told me that the band is going on tour later this month for a month and a half as part of some Virgin Mega Store promotion. He also mentioned that there WILL be a new record out in November, the EP we've been hearing about for the last 4 years. Yep, it is for sure coming out so get your ears ready. There won't be any singing on it really, it will be the big "rock opera" that Stephan's talked about for some time. Word is they are still kicking around the title "Symphony of Decay". Is it just me or does 3eb not really fit the skull and crossbones, death and decay mold anymore? I just don't think of them that way anymore because, gosh darn it, this new record makes me peppy. If I had my choice, I'd name it something festive. or maybe it's just cos I'm truly happy for the first time in my life, but i digress...
More on the tour...Two of the tour dates have been confirmed and more will confirm next week. However, they aren't ready to be posted yet so...hold on to your panties, I'll post 'em right when I get 'em.
Stephan also emailed me and said he is currently working on Vanessa Carlton's (his girlfriend) new record and he's produced 6 songs of hers so far. He also is doing some back up vocals on it and has Arion working on it a bit, too. I really like her. I hope he marries that girl. Stephan is currently on a radio promotional tour though the 23rd of this month that no one seems to know the schedule for, so sorry 'bout that cos I tried to get it.
Oh! Have you heard Crystal Baller on the radio yet? It got sent to radio last week so listen out for it and call your radio stations and request the hell out of it. Tony says the band *will* be doing a video for it at some point. More info as I get it...
I just got back from a week long vacation in the dirty sowff so I'll be sure to tie up my loose ends with the site over the course of next week. Check back soon!
The Fan Gathering absolutely ruled! Thanks to everyone who came and thanks especially to the band and their crew who made it all possible! I have uploaded Dan's digital cam pics - I've still got a million hard copy pics to scan. If you took pics make sure to email them to me so I can add them to the page! Also coming soon....audio from the private fan gathering sound check, details from my perspective, more pics from the event and both shows....and video of the fan gathering coming to teb.net.
I want to give big shouts out to Kimya Dawson who just plain kicks booty! Ooh speaking of booty! She is going to provide us samples of Stephan's Ass Drums (patent pending) very soon, so stay tuned!
Coming in a minute....Stephan's annual birthday fundraiser. Time to break out those check books in celebration of the Big Guy's Big 39th Bday! Details very soon.
Posted all info about the Fan Gathering on 8/15 - make sure to RSVP by 8/13 if you plan to come!
Sorry for the lack of updates...his name is Dan. ;) I literally haven't been online for over 2 weeks. Living in Las Vegas is proving...difficult?... because it's hard to not do what Vegas offers most of: 24/7 party. To sum it up - momma got a brand new bag and she livin' la vida loca.
I haven't heard a peep back from the band on the fan gathering idea so I don't know what else to say right now but hang on tight and keep your fingers crossed.
I'm sorry to report that SJ.com is not going to be your #1 source for timely 3eb information so please bookmark www.3eb.co.uk.
The next 3eb single and video will be...dun nuh nuh nuh...Crystal Baller! Listen for it on your radio around the middle of August.
Several updates in progress...
Latest on the fan gathering...I've submitted all the big ideas for the fan gathering to 3eb and their management...I should be hearing back some point this week about what will be doable and then we'll put together an agenda. If you plan on going, you should really go on and buy tix and book a hotel room cos it *will* sell out. Fan gathering will be free, of course!
The show in Vegas last night was nothing short of spectacular! And I've got some SUPER DUPER news! The 2003 Ultimate 3eb Fan Gathering is a GO! Sure, sure, a lot of you don't know what the heck I am talking about...yet...but let me just say - CLEAR YOUR CALENDAR for 8/15!! More details when I get back from Anaheim! Feel free to discuss this on the message board in the meantime. :)
Check out the new video for Blinded! It's so awesome!
If you are going to the HOB shows in Las Vegas and Anaheim, look for me and my crew! Hope to share the front row with ya! :)
No updates til Wednesday, I am moving to Las Vegas...Goodbye San Francisco, I'll miss you more than you could ever imagine. Best 3 1/2 years of my life. Jen's Song

The hottest question of the month: What is a macram� queen that Stephan sings about in Crystal Baller?
Well, our good friend K-Dawg made sure to ask the man SJ for us and here's what he said:
"A macram� queen is a girl that wears a macram� halter top with no fear. She has to be completely aware and comfortable of her surroundings. The environment she is in is safe because the weather is warm."
Check out more 3ebonics!
Did you see 3eb on Good Morning America? Our good friend K-Dawg was holding up a poster that said SJ.com on it. HEHE! I hear it got on TV a few times. Rockin'! Thanks K-Dawg! :)

SJ.com is back in business. A 3eb fan named Jason from New Jersey is starting his own webhosting company and has graciously donated 5gig of webspace and 50gig data transfer per month to SJ.com to use. Once his company site is up and running, we'll tell you more. Big things are in the works to make great use of this donation - more info soon!
3eb.com has mailed me a copy of the Loveline show that SJ was on a few weeks ago to rip into mp3 for them, so if you missed it, keep checking back for the mp3s to download. Should have those up soon.
Check out this cool message from Tony on his site. It includes all the tunings for OOTV for all you tabbers.
Happy Memorial Day!
I am selling off a good portion of my 3eb memorabilia. Check out my 3eb memorabilia auctions on eBay!
SJ.com is looking for a new webhost. We need at least 5gb storage and truly unlimited bandwidth or at least 40gb transfer allowance per mo. and cost no more than $400/year. If you have a recommendation, please let me know.
SJ.com is on vacation in Las Vegas and will not be updated again til Thursday.
If you are planning to watch the Coca-Cola 600 race this weekend, keep an eye out for the 3eb car driven by #30 Steve Parks. Queue up "Company" to play in the background while you watch. Here's their car:
According to Hits Magazine, 3eb debuted on the sales charts at #10 for week one sales and sold 62,655 copies of OOTV. Here's a screen capture of the chart that I took:
So 3eb is touring with this new artist named Josh Kelley, who I had never heard of in my life til today. So I went to his site and checked out some songs and he reminds me a lot of John Mayer. In fact, they are both from Georgia. Anyhoo, me oh my what a Q-T! That Josh Kelley is some kinda cute, in a nerdy, just-woke-up kinda way that I really likey. numma numma Might have to catch a show now. ;) So yeah, my point is...and I do have one....Josh Kelley is the opening act this summer. heh
Did *anybody* record 3eb on Loveline last week? I missed it and need a copy. Tape or mp3, doesn't matter. Let me know!
SJ.com is streamlined til the end of the month for bandwidth overages. That means too many people visiting, go away go away! Just kidding. Everything you'll need to know til June 1 is right on this page. Tour dates at the bottom of the page. And relax, it's only for 2 weeks.
Pick up a copy of Interview magazine's June issue. There you'll find: Stephan Jenkins: Not Your Normal Rocker Interview by JT Leroy
personal note: I've gotten quite a bad rep for not replying to emails in a decent amount of time, so just wanted yall to know that I'm working on that shortcoming and will do my best to reply to all emails within 72 hours. :P
Regarding the backstage pictures from the tour...I don't have 'em, I never had 'em, and I'm not gonna have 'em. Whoever told you people that SJ.com would have them was smokin' the endo! You need to go to etix.com and bug THEM. Thanks. :D
Going to see Matrix Reloaded? Check out Arion in a scene at the beginning of the movie. You'll see him bangin' away at some conga drums at the big street party in Zion. It's right before the big sex scene. Check him out! And for the record, the movie was definitely worth the $10 ticket.
Added a bunch of tour dates. My MC: they play Vegas 2 days before I move there. :(
Unless you live under a rock, you've heard that today is the big day for 3eb! Go out and buy the new record today and guarantee yourself a limited edition copy with a bonus DVD of 3eb behind the scenes!
What do you think of the new record? Post your reviews here.
Don't forget, 3eb is on Loveline tonight - if ya don't get Loveline on your local radio station, then make sure to listen online!
