Moruya's Funky Little Festival - King Tide and Cookin’ On 3 Burners


Moruya's Funky Little Festival is on again. The Granite Town committee is hosting a funk filled one day festival, on Saturday 23 September at the Moruya Racecourse. With just four weeks to go before Funk Day we thought it might be an idea to introduce you to the acts over the coming weeks.


KING TIDE

Aria award nominees King Tide are Australia’s premier original Rock Steady Reggae gut soul band. King Tide have been touring non-stop since the release of the bands third album Roots Pop Reggae released by Vitamin Records July 2009. With appearance’s at festivals as wide and varied as “Sydney Festival Opening Night”, “Womadalaide”, “Ragamuffin festival”, “The Great Escape”, “Peats Ridge Festival”, “Wave Rock Weekender” W.A, Coast Fest”, “Playground Weekender”, “Reggaetown”,“Island Vibes Festival” “Sub Sonic Festival”, “Mullum Fest”, “Wollombi Fest”, “Rainbow Serpent Festival”, and recently headlining Reggaefest in Ballina with and as the backing band for Jamaican studio one legend Stranger Cole.


COOKIN' ON 3 BURNERS Featuring vocalist Stella Angelico! 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 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.
