THREE STEP MANOEUVRE + GARETH LOCKRANE
For this special gig at NextGenJazz Hidden Rooms Live, funk organ trio Three Step Manoeuvre team up with multi award winning flautist Gareth Lockrane for a gig of funk and soul jazz classics:
«That quick picking, shuffle snare, drums and riding bass is a recipe that very few can get right, but Three Step Manoeuvre does it magnificently.»

THREE STEP MANOEUVRE features some of UK's most talented young musicians: guitarist BEN LEE, keyboardist DAVE FERRIS and drummer OSCAR REYNOLDS.
They 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.
After the release of their debut EP in 2014, and have since performed all over the UK, with gigs including the renowned Cheltenham Jazz Festival where they 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 their approach to funk music — grounded in the old-school sound they love, but fresh, fun and accessible to audiences everywhere.
