Join us for a Jazz High tea featuring The Syncopators

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 by excelling at the music they love and loving the music they excel at, they are recognised as one of the leading classic/mainstream jazz groups in Australia by critics and jazz fans alike.

Arguably they are regarded as the leaders in their field in the world. This, plus their superb musicianship, stage presence and keen sense of humour invariably draw standing ovations worldwide.

Quote from jazz superstar James Morrison

“…. this band is about that wonderful feeling you get when music is played for the sheer joy of it, the feeling you get when you just have to smile and move to the music. With a line-up of some of Australia’s best swinging players…. you couldn’t ask for more”.
James Morrison, AO, 2009
