Home Cookin’ is a horn-based soul band that played in the Las Vegas local scene from 1989 to 2000. Described by drummer and video game composer Frank Klepacki as "just a good-time, funky dance band", the band has been compared to Tower of Power and featured a five-man horn section. Begun as a high school hobby in 1988 by vocalist Jordan Robins, the band took a hiatus early in the decade as its founding members pursued college. Robins recalled, "We were together for a couple of years and wanted to do some serious recording. I was working at a pizza place, making nothing. Pretty soon I realized, where's the money going to come from? If I'm going to do anything seriously musically, I've got to get some money first - and some knowledge." The band became active again around 1995 after Robins recruited members from the jazz ensemble of the University of Nevada at Las Vegas. Around the mid 1990s, the band grew to include ten members, including a five-man horn section and drums played by video game music composer Frank Klepacki. The group released their debut album in 1997, named Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, and featuring fourteen tracks. Track nine, Soul Space Express, appeared on Road Rash: Jailbreak and the television series Cupid, while X-Rated Superstar was a number one hit and received regular airplay on Vegas's KXTE-FM Xtreme Disorder format.Playboy playmate Corinna Harney volunteered to appear on the album's cover. The success of this song sparked a racy music video. Home Cookin' songs were regularly included on Las Vegas scene compilation albums.
