The Tonalists are a 3 piece outfit from Melbourne, playing a soul blues inspired repertoire, inventively morphed to fit their line up of Hammond organ, pianos, guitar, lap steel, vocals and drums.
Featuring Mick Coll on Hammond and pianos, Jason Kain on guitar and lap steel, Nigel Wright on drums and percussion, their sound is retro but with a modern twist, often 'sampling' the originals and looping over the patterns, overlaying 'tone on tone'.
Their setlist includes tunes by Lou Donaldson, Leon Russell, Gill Scott-Heron, Billy Preston to name a few...
