All members are Jazz graduates from Birmingham Conservatoire which is where the band formed four years ago. Since then the band have focused on finding their unique sound and writing. Having found this they are now looking to showcase their material and explore the music scene.
The band have played some prestigious venues and festivals: Mostly Jazz, Funk and Soul Festival, Cheltenham Jazz Festival, Bedford River Jazz festival, Symphony Hall Foyer, The Hare and Hounds and the Glee Club in Birmingham.
“Three Step Manoeuvre formed in the summer of 2013 and since then we've been writing songs, playing gigs, and honing our sound.
We came together through a shared love of the classic organ trio line-up, and the music of funk pioneers like James Brown and The Meters, jazz legends such as Jimmy Smith and John Scofield, and modern groups including Lettuce and Soulive.
We released our debut EP in 2014, and have since performed all over the UK, with gigs including the renowned Cheltenham Jazz Festival where we played on the same bill as Gregory Porter, as well as an amazing residency at the much-missed Yardbird in Birmingham.
November 2016 saw the release of our first full album, Three Step Strut. Featuring special guests Gareth Lockrane on flute and Cherise Adams-Burnett on vocals, it perfectly sums up our approach to funk music - grounded in the old-school sound we love, but fresh, fun and accessible to audiences everywhere.”
