about the band
Jazz Fever is a close-knit group of best mates who formed a band almost 10 years ago while studying at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. All the musicians in Jazz Fever are full-time musicians who live and breathe music, not a bunch of “weekend warriors” like you might find in some other bands out there. They play together every week, and have gelled into a super slick unit by doing so.
Collectively they have performed in the most exclusive and high profile jazz and music venues in Sydney and Australia, alongside the best musicians and bands in the country, playing music at the highest standard.
- Female Vocals

The band can be customized to just about any size and budget, from duo to big band, capable of rocking the house or setting an intimate mood. They are firmly rooted in the jazz tradition yet able to traverse any number of music genres.
