Event Details

Luke Thompson (vocals) & Chris Martin (piano): Having played together for more than 20 years, this duo has progressed from Lego to He-Man to Music, and although the toys have become more complex, the joy of playing is still the same. Drawing inspiration from Bobby McFerrin & Chick Corea, Michael Franks, Paul Bley and the immortal Saturday morning cartoons of the 80's, Luke & Chris will reflect on growing up in Port Adelaide as 2 of 13 grandkids of the Thompson clan.

Dutchman Remco Keijzer and Australian Lucian McGuiness normally reside hemispheres apart, but brave long haul flights and carry-on restrictions to join musical forces whenever possible. The challenge has been to develop material for the band during these brief assemblies. The result is exuberant, sometimes brazen music that blends the jazz flavours of Sydney, Amsterdam and New York. The Keijzer McGuiness Quintet reunites in March 2009 for a national tour to launch their first album, The Seed Habit.
