Jackal Tour Dates Announced!


Jackal is this amazing little trio I am honoured to be a part of! It’s a modern jazz & fusion outfit that I like to think of as a celebration of form and freedom. The compositions are meticulously crafted soundscapes that feature the unique personalities/voices of each musician as they explore the sonic landscape. It’s fun and challenging….. It’s FUNCHELLING!


The Phats Sunday Sessions!

Featuring some of Brisbane’s most in-demand musicians, the Phats are a versatile collective bringing together elements of funk, pop, jazz, hip-hop and soul.


These Sunday sessions are a chilled out affair, a nice break from the nightclub scene.

Come down and relax with 3 of the Phats during the Sunday Sessions.
