The 3rd Trick were related to the X-Cellents.Roger Sayre was involved altough it's not certain that he was a playing member. Bill Weicht was the drummer, the same spot he had with the X-Cellents. John Spitler was also a member.The details may be vague, but the band did make at least one 45, recorded at Cyberteknics. The record has been mistakenly described as ‘soul’, it’s a horn-rock sound right from the Blood, Sweat, and Tears / Chicago camp. The 45 uses the same Rite pressing account as the Jalyn label and the catalog number lines up with the Dabico label, suggesting they are part of a Cyberteknics custom numbering sequence.
The band spent most if not all their existence as house band for the Pooki-Pooki club in Dayton.
