The Scone Cash Players are on a mission...

 

The Scone Cash Players arrive with force and fury.   It is a mission to bring the purist, most soulful, dynamic and funky organ music to the people of the world.  During a breakout performance at the Funky Sole Weekender in Los Angeles alongside Lee Fields & The Expressions, Breakestra, The Monophonics and Jungle Fire they were propelled on to the international scene. Incredible tours followed to Brazil, New York City, California, Midwest US as well as hometown shows in Miami. The Scone Cash Players are eager for more.  There was an unforgettable performance at the Miami Downtown Jazz Fest.  Brooklyn Vegan choose to premier "Blast Furnace! LP" and "Scone Cold Christmas 7" Single and Video.  Scone Cash Players were chosen in the top ten Funk 45's by Flea Market Funk, as well as "Top Vinyl LP and 7" single by Nostalgia King of the year.

 

Adam Scone draws from his vast experience working with soul legends The Sugarman Three, Lee Fields, Naomi Shelton & Sharon Jones.   He has also backed up Jazz and Boogaloo legends Lou Donaldson, Melvin Sparks and Ben Dixon.   Over the years he has appeared on over 50 recordings.  It is this unique experience that fuels the hard driving soul psychedelia that is certain to make any audience jump up and get into it.  

 

Where is the bass player?  That is Scone playing the bass with the deepest pocket around.  The tradition of organ low end is of paramount importance in this band. The left foot mixed with left hand bass truly are the nastiest and funkiest sound in town.  Adam Scone is steeped in the organ bass tradition of fellow players and mentors Dr. Lonnie Smith, Dr. Jack McDuff, Big John Patton and Jimmy Smith.

 

Scone learned the ropes traveling the world with various Daptone recording artists.   He has brought the organ business at the worlds top music festivals including Bonnaroo, Glastonbury, North Sea Jazz Festival,  Montreux Jazz Festival, Umbria Jazz Festival, Nice Jazz Festival, New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival & the Monterey Jazz Festival.  He has also brought the business in many seedy lounges all across the US, Europe, South and Central America, Africa and the Middle East.  Scone has manipulated the plastic keys and thrown Leslie switches at iconic NYC venues such as The Village Vanguard, The Blue Note, The Apollo Theater,  The Bowery Ballroom and many others.  In addition, you can see and hear him playing organ in the recently released Daptone Records concert film “Living on Soul!”   Do you want to do the Boogaloo?  Enjoy the Scone Cash Players.
