News & Gigs

– Covid-19 Update

  • I am advising those enquiring/booking at this time that if Covid-19 restrictions are reintroduced by the time your date comes around then events can certainly be postponed to another suitable date without penalty – Lucas Evans

    No dance-floor? No problems! Please also note that in order to make your event ‘Covid-safe’ there may be restrictions that don’t allow a dance-floor (or singing) at your function due to social distancing rules. In this situation a live Jazz band is ideal as we can still perform more of our ‘Lounge Jazz’ repertoire (or instrumental only) to entertain and create ambiance without playing our more upbeat/uptempo dancing repertoire. We can adjust our repertoire on the day in line with the requirements.


After our 8 year continuous weekly Wednesday night residency at the renowned Botanical Hotel, South Yarra came to an end with new management Orlando Combo then moved on to Sagra in Malvern for another 3 year residency. With Sagra being sold we are on the lookout for another suitable venue to host our live Jazz nights which we will be announced.
