Cookin’ On 3 Burners To Play The Big Chill For Arts Centre Melbourne’s Soundtrack Sessions

Cookin’ On 3 Burners will serve Melbourne a night of music from The Big Chill when they perform the soundtrack from start to finish at Arts Centre Melbourne as part of the Soundtrack Sessions.

The Big Chill Soundtrack Sessions is something totally new for Arts Centre Melbourne and Cookin’ On 3 Burners. “With lots of things with Cookin’ On 3 Burners it’s the inspiration to take the collaboration and move the Hammond trio into a different scenario,” Jake Mason tells “That soundtrack contains so many great soul tracks so its right in our territory. The plan is to Cookin’ On 3 Burnersify a bunch of those songs. We will be very much true to the originals but put of little spin on them”.

Because of the diversity of the album, four singers have been recruited for the show. “We get to work with four fantastic vocalists and have a great time really,” Jake says. “We’ve got Kylie Auldist coming to sing. We have Stella Angelico Nina Ferro who we collaborated with many years ago and Andrew De Silva who is a new collaboration for us. I’ve worked with him in other projects but this will be a first for Cookin’ On 3 Burners”.

The 1983 drama The Big Chill featured Soul and R&B music from the 60s and 70s. “They are great crafted songs with lots of personality,” Jake says. “There is not a dud on there at all. There was also a deluxe edition and a bunch of songs that weren’t featured on the original soundtracks so there are quite a few tunes to work with”.

The Soundtrack Sessions for The Big Chill is a one off performance at Arts Centre Melbourne on December 1, 2017. “I’m very excited to be part of this. We have been rehearsing madly to put this all together. When you write a lot of songs yourself you lose a bit of touch. It is great to do something like this to see how other people write songs. You really get inside them and take something away on top of doing the show. Just the way they put a lot of these songs together it is a great treat”.

Tickets for Soundtrack Sessions The Big Chill are from $49-$69 and available from Arts Centre Melbourne’s website.
