"...EASILY ONE OF THE TOP JAZZ GROUPS IN AUSTRALIA TODAY..."
Featuring NICHAUD FITZGIBBON, GEORGE WASHINGMACHINE & DAN BARNETT
Formed in 1984, Chris Ludowyk hand picked the cream of Melbourne's jazz talent to form the "Society Syncopators", now known as "The Syncopators". Within a few short years, the band arrived at the pinnacle of Australian jazz. With their versatility (the guitarist plays banjo, the bassist plays tuba, the clarinettist plays alto and tenor sax and the trombonist plays bass and piano), they cover a wide range of styles and material. The vocal harmonising talent of the front-line also lends itself to the performance of 'popular jazz' material a la 'Mills Brothers' and 'Boswell Sisters'.
