The Meltdown: The Music of Ray Charles

Making the song the focus, The Meltdown stay true to the story and keep your attention on the soaring voice of Simon Burke. He’s soul, but He’s something else indefinable; like you’ve heard him before but don’t know where. The rhythm section create a hypnotic spacious groove to lean upon and the horns gracefully tie it all together. This stellar band bring a blend of Stax and Motown with a healthy dose of the Nashville songwriting tradition.  Songs to move your heart and your feet as echoes of Memphis soul resonate. 

The Meltdown continue the tradition of world class soul bands to emerge from Melbourne, and they’ll wrap you in their warm embrace. 

For this very special performance performing the music of Ray Charles, the band is joined by acclaimed vocalists Hailey Cramer and Alma Zygier.
