King Salami & the Cumberland Three

This is London’s greatest and most sensational Rhythm’n’Blues-Punk band. And this is a band that truly represents London, being a mongrel mix of Caribbean, France, Japan and Spain. With a repertoire influenced by many of the great songs of the ’50s and ’60s made to sound fresh and new to modern ears, you won’t be able to help but move your feet when the Cumberland Three are blasting out of your speakers. 

The King howls like Screaming Jay Hawkins with Bo Diddley chasing his coat-tail whilst Andre Williams tries to offer up some of his bacon fat, and the Trashmen do the Surfin' Bird behind him. This is a man that never stops shakin’ and twistin’ and groovin’. The Cumberland Three (former members of punk rock bands, including The Parkinsons) rock up a storm with their own branded mix of vintage rockabilly, desperate rock’n’roll and stomping soul, with fire, energy, gusto and, above all, fun!

Their numerous vinyl singles and their three albums have sold like the proverbial hot cakes and they keep releasing new records all the time. This is an old fashioned singles band, one that puts out one seven inch after another, all designed, and guaranteed, to get you dancing like a madman! They have toured the world, playing Europe, Australia, the USA, Japan, China (everywhere from big cities to rural villages), French Polynesia, Turkey and the Middle East, and have shared a stage with the likes of the Standells, Pretty Things, Trashmen, and the Mummies, to name a few. Indeed, so well regarded are they by the titans of rock’n’roll and rhythm’n’blues that they even have a record which they share the grooves with the legendary Andre Williams! 

Whether on stage or on record this is one of the most exciting bands in rock’n’roll right now – they are guys who know what it takes to make you move. Equal parts rock'n 'roll and soul, with a healthy dose of blues and rockabilly and a good bit of punk rock attitude, whether you’re at a club show or in your living room you won’t be able to help yourself from shakin' and shimmyin'. You can bet your bacon that they're gonna be cookin’ up a party at your house too! 

You might have seen them recently starring on BBC’s TV series “UK’S BEST PART-TIME BAND” (presented by Rhod Gilbert), and they also have 2 songs in the soundtrack of the 2016 Hollywood movie “Death Race 2050” (remake of Death Race 2000) produced by the legendary Roger Corman! After 3 studio albums, their awaited 4th album “Kiss my ring” is out the 4th of October 2019 on Damaged Goods records (Europe), Off the Hip (Australia) and FOLC (Spain only)!
