Australia’s Premier Jazz and Blues Show Band
The cream of Melbourne’s Jazz musicians combine to create an extraordinary repertoire
of music from the 20’s to the 60’s covering both Jazz & Blues styles.
Although their repertoire stems from the roots of traditional Jazz, they play everything from
classic jazz through to mainstream and rhythm and blues. This guarantees a much broader
audience and wider appeal than that of a ‘straight’ jazz group.
The Syncopators have toured extensively and successfully in Europe, Asia and the
South Pacific and regularly appear on TV specials and feature films.
They have recorded widely over their long career and are well known for their hot live
performances displaying mastery on their instruments and versatility in both acoustic
and electric styles as evident in their ‘The Bells ‘ (The Australian Jazz Awards) award winning
live CD at the Spiegel Tent in Melbourne 2009.
Their talent shows no end, as well as performing hot instrumental numbers they are just as
comfortable singing and harmonizing popular vocal tunes.
Individually they have performed and recorded with the likes of Jimmy Witherspoon,
Bud Freeman, Red Richards, Herb Ellis, Bo Diddley, Warren Vache’, Nora Jones to name a few.
The Syncopators are truly a great band who have gained a reputation as one of the best
groups of its type in the world.
