Join Lake Minnetonka, Mayfield and Au Dré, along with guest vocalists Amber Ferraro (Honey), Henry Manetta and more to be announced, as they throw a funk and soul party to make you forget your winter blues!
Lake Minnetonka is the funk juggernaut forging a Melbourne take on the Minneapolis Sound. Having recently released their debut album, Melbourneapolis, their 80s inspired jazz fusion and on-stage antics will leave you on a purple high.
Mayfield fuse together soulful beats, smooth melodies and powerhouse vocals that give a classic sound a modern urban twist. A year after releasing their debut album, Victim of Circumstance, at the Gaso, Carla and her crew return almost to the day, to serve up another batch of mouthwatering soul, with an extra helping of funk.
Au Dré is a collaboration between Producer/Keyboardist extraordinaire JamBau (James Bowers) and Vocalist/Trumpeter Audrey Powne. The pair fuse together maximalist electronic music and late 70‘s/early 80’s Disco/Dance music, delivering the perfect combination of a contemporary “banger” with the sophistication and energy of old-school funk and R’n’B. As James continues to work feverishly on new recordings, Audrey will be performing their compositions solo for us, giving us ALL the trumpet solos! So don't miss Au Dré, Mayfield and Lake Minnetonka as they rock Melbourneapolis and the City of Yarra with more funk than is healthy for a Thursday night!
