Cookin’ On 3 Burners are Australia’s hardest hitting Hammond Organ Trio – 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 the 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.
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. They made their home at esteemed UK label Freestyle Records, rocked the B-Boy and B-Girl championships, had songs featured on a string of hit TV shows and played alongside acts such as Quantic, Alice Russell, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Fat Freddie’s Drop and many others.
Their sixth album Blind Bet more than delivers. Described as ‘classic soul sounds with a modern cinematic twist’, it features beautiful string and horn arrangements by Ross Irwin and special guest vocalists Daniel Merriweather, Tex Perkins, Kylie Auldist, Harry James Angus (Cat Empire) and Jason Heerah (Electric Empire).
In 2016, Cookin’ on 3 Burners continued to further branch out, collaborating with prominent French electronic producer Kungs on a reworking of ‘This Girl’. This track saw substantial chart success world-wide, reaching #1 in Europe, and being the most Shazamed dance track of 2016 in the world.
If you haven’t seen Cookin’ on 3 Burners live, you’re in for a treat. Grab your over gloves and join the band as they celebrate the future sound of yesterday.
