The Vampires Nightjar Tour @ the Playhouse
Immerse yourself in an evening of distinctive melodies and rhythms with The Vampires, an instrumental ensemble celebrated for what the Guardian UK calls their “genre-hopping creativity”. Having captivated audiences from the UK to Europe and their native Australia, The Vampires have received critical acclaim, an ARIA nomination, and stand out as the first instrumental act to be shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize, boasting a lineup of some of the most acclaimed and sought-after musicians of this generation.
Nightjar, their latest album, introduces a fresh collaborative endeavor with renowned pianist and keyboard player Chris Abrahams. A member of the legendary improvised minimalism trio, The Necks, Abrahams enriches The Vampires’ music with an expansive and scintillating approach, adding another exciting dimension to their sound.
Jeremy Rose: tenor saxophone; Nick Garbett: trumpet; Noel Mason: bass; Alex Masso: drums, electronics
