B3 KINGS are a based band around the classic Hammond B3 organ trio playing soul, boogaloo, blues, funk, and rock. Influenced by Dr. Lonnie Smith, The Meters, Booker T. and the MGs, Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff, Jack McDuff, Billy Preston, The Beatles, and Rusty Bryant to name a few this is about a movin', groovin' good time out! The band is Johnny Trama - guitar, Rusty Scott - hammond B3 organ, and Dave Brophy - drums.
Matt Stubbs has earned himself a reputation for penning soul-drenched Roots & Blues guitar instrumentals. His well-crafted songs are melodic and original; echoing the sounds of historic greats such as Booker T and the MGs, Earl Hooker, Lonnie Mack, and Freddie King. Blues guitarist Rick Holmstrom sums it up best: "The thing I like best about Matt Stubbs playing is that he leaves space. There are plenty of young blues guitarists who can play a whole lot of guitar, and Matt can hang with 'em all, but there are very few who understand that it's important to let it breathe. I dig the economy and simplicity of Matt's playing. He's got an old soul."
