Grammy Lifetime Achievement award winners The Meters are considered by many to be the founding fathers of funk along with James Brown. They created a sound that influenced a new era of American music and toured with the Rolling Stones, The Beatles and played as the backing band for artists such as Lee Dorsey, Robert Palmer, Dr. John, and Allen Toussaint and more.
Listening to Cookin’ On 3 Burners is like poking your head through a time portal that stretches between the year you were born and the middle of next week. On one hand there are clues to a spiritual home that’s situated somewhere in the back streets of 1966, but on the other is a reinvented soul stew that’s very much a product of the 21st Century. Born collaborators, they have recorded with artists such as Daniel Merriweather, Tex Perkins, Kylie Auldist, Emmi, Kaait and Yolanda be Cool. Their collaboration with French DJ Kungs on “This Girl” saw the trio hit the charts in over 30 territories, winning the APRA 1 Billion Streams award and an ARIA nomination for song of the year.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to take an excursion through the deep archives of funk. Opening the show, is Melbourne’s very own old-School Soul and Jazz powerhouse Ms Emilia. A Monash University Alumni, Miss Emilia, has been taking Australia by storm with her wild voice, big hair and heartfelt evocative music. Known as her European & Hebrew name Emilia and her stage name “Miss Emilia”, the award winning vocalist has received the Bornstein Jazz Vocal Prize, the Future Leaders Jazz Awards and the Push Composition Prize.
Emilia has performed at international festivals including the Ubud Village Jazz Festival in Bali, Prato Jazz Festival in Italy, Melbourne International Jazz Festival, Stonnington Jazz Festival, Castlemaine Jazz Festival, Marysville Jazz Festival, Bello Winter Music Festival and FOJAM to name a few. She has performed with Australian house-hold names such as Kate Ceberano and Paul Grabowsky and with her band The Mamas has opened for acts such as San Cisco
