Australia’s hardest hitting Hammond organ trio Cookin’ On 3 Burners are back at The Counts! In true Cookin’ On 3 Burners fashion, this show is set to be all live and full of vibe, joining the dots between Deep Funk, Raw Soul, Organ Jazz & Boogaloo.
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.
Formed in 1997, Cookin’ On 3 Burners was always meant to be an experiment in sound. Drenched in the bluesy soulful influence of the late 60′s/early 70′s output of labels such as Prestige, Bluenote & Groove Merchant, these Melbourne
music stalwarts began serving up a feast of tasty funk on a bed of Hammond soul, creating a flavour that gets better with every lick of the spoon.
Seven albums and a crate of 7” singles deep in the game (now releasing on their own label Soul Messin’ Records), the group have taken their sound global with tracks picked up by DJs and tastemakers worldwide including Craig Charles (BBC6), DJ Numark (Jurassic 5) and WaxPoetics. In 2016, the group collaborated with French EDM wunderkind Kungs on the global smash hit Kungs vs. Cookin’ On 3 Burners version of their soul classic ‘This Girl’. The track hit #1 on the Billboard charts in 10 countries and was the most Shazamed dance song of 2016.
A Cookin’ On 3 Burners live show is an all access pass to all good feels where you find the band in their element – connecting with their fans new and old and sweating it out together for the love of the music. Building on their deep funk and sweet soul blueprint, the trio have brought their signature sound to collaborations with a diverse range of artists including Kaiit, Kylie Auldist, Louis Baker, Mantra, Tex Perkins and their resident live show vocalist, the dynamically fabulous Stella Angelico.
With local, national and international mainstage performances including The Roundhouse (UK), Tokyo Jazz Festival, Live Alcazar Rome, Queenscliff and Port Fairy music festivals and sold out club shows throughout Australia, Europe and the UK, the stage is the place to see Australia’s hardest hitting Hammond organ trio in full flight.
