“A distinctive gumbo that was more eminently accessible, grooved harder and created a bigger sound than seemed possible.” - All About Jazz
"If jazz music is about continuously reinventing and staying on your toes, then The Vampires Meet Lionel Loueke' is a phenomenal jazz record. ****" - Downbeat

Sydney-based world-roots-jazz quartet, The Vampires are touring Australia in March. They will be joined by bassist Alex Boneham for his first Australian performances since 2014 when he moved to Los Angeles to study at the Monk Institute with the likes of Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter. Combining risk-taking improvisation, sophisticated compositions and an uncanny sense of dialogue between the sax-trumpet frontline, the band has developed a style of its own that effortlessly combines influences from all corners of the world. Recently, the band collaborated with one of the jazz world’s most talked about guitarists Lionel Loueke for their latest release 'The Vampires Meet Lionel Loueke’, which was nominated for an ARIA Award.
