Burning, Bad & Cool is a vocal oriented trio that performs southern fried soul, gospel and blues music dipped in thick, sweet harmony. Here is a band with two great lead vocalists and the perfect third complimentary voice. First, ‘Burning’ James Scoolis brings his soulful vocal style and slings lead, slide and rhythm guitar playing on his Stratocaster. Second, there is Jimmy “Cool” Conroy on his hybrid Taylor acoustic with his incredible deep baritone voice. Jim is so exceptional that he has been referred to as “the voice” in the press. And finally, there is “Bad” Billy Baxmeyer on bass and vocals. These three voices blend so beautifully that you can not help but take notice.
Together Burning, Bad & Cool present a totally unique musical experience with a one of a kind playlist — at a BB&C show, you will hear moving, toe-tappin’ classic gospel tunes such as Amazing Grace, Down By the Riverside, Go Tell It On the Mountain, Wade in the Water and more, and then there are the fun and soulful secular tunes from the likes of the Temptations, Al Green, Sam Cooke and more. And the harmonies! Oh my, my! Burning, Bad & Cool. If you like the sound of three voices blending seamlessly, well then you just have got to check this incredible group out.
