Two of Melbourne’s most volcanic soul/funk acts Fulton Street and Mayfield have teamed up for a double bill at Melbourne’s home of soul music, the iconic Cherry Bar on Thursday 17th June.
Both outfits have been making waves in the Melbourne and Australian soul scene, with a high level of musicianship that can simultaneously start the party and make you feel something real. With strong vocals, smooth melodies, a whole lotta sass, funk grooves and slick horn lines, Fulton Street and Mayfield pay homage to the soul acts that have walked before them, as well as fusing together modern elements of soul, funk, and R&B.
Both bands are fronted by powerhouse vocalists, Carla Troiano (Mayfield) and Shannen Wick (Fulton Street) who are both featured vocalists in Melbourne’s ‘Women Of Soul’ collective (including artists such as Kylie Auldist and Chelsea Wilson). They are joined on stage by some of the finest and funkiest musicians in town and each have a record produced by Mayfield’s own drummer Ivan ‘Choi’ Khatchoyan (Cookin’ on 3 Burners and The Traffic).
