Inside the Community: Third Eye Blind’s Bonfire 🔥
Last September, I was led from one group into another closed group, and my eyes were open wide. Sandi Schorr quickly friended me and ran me through much of what I had missed though out the years on social media regarding 3EB. I was definitely inspired and motivated by her posts, and her amazing group. What really stood out though was the her consistency, and dedication. It spoke volumes. She is very special to the birth of 3eblifestyle.
Today we are featuring Third Eye Blind's Bonfire. We got together with Tracy Blake and Sandi, to bring you a Saturday Special.
This closed group feeds all my needs for Third Eye Blind on the daily. If I need to laugh, or get inspired, I head over to the bonfire and interact. Its on the top of my list, of expert musts.
Sandi Schorr thank you for all you do. You and your team are on fire.

What inspired you to start this group?
SANDI SCHORR: My love for Third Eye Blind started back in 1997 when I first heard “Semi-Charmed Life” on the radio. Fast forward to 2014 - the year my mother passed away; I was feeling deeply alone and was searching for something. I was on Facebook one day when I decided to join a Third Eye Blind group. I was so happy to find other fans who share a deep love for this band. Some people were very warm and welcoming but after a year of being in these groups, I felt a cold vibe, like I was a total misfit who really didn't fit in. My “I want something else, to get me thru this...” mentality lead me here.
SS: My vision in opening my own group was that I wanted to name it after a Third Eye Blind song. I chose Bonfire 🔥 because I felt like it best represented a warm, loving environment, like being with friends and family. It's been over a year now that the Bonfire 🔥 has been burning bright and strong- we now have over 400 active members in a community that shows respect and love for one another and for Third Eye Blind. I feel honored to be able to bring fans together and enjoy the music and love of our band. This band and it's lyrics run through my veins and the love I have is deeper than bones. “I found my people and nothing else matters” is my mantra!
Message to the Band:
Thank you for creating the music that has meant the world to all of your fans- the soundtrack to our lives! Every Third Eye Blind fan has their own personal connection to so many songs. Some songs generate tears of sorrow or of joy, some make us sing at the top of our lungs, others simply help us make it through our day. The music which draws us to the best live concerts ever and has connected us with fellow 3eb fans. Third Eye Blinds music has inspired all of us in too many ways to name, and for this we are grateful!
