“The Prisoners of Jazzkaban” are a four piece Funky-Jazz group that spawned from the depths of their University performance class. Lachlan performs on guitar and vocals, with Simon on Tenor Sax, Elliot dropping the bass and Mitch hitting things with sticks. The group aim to express and articulate their creative intent by using Jazz harmony, a keen awareness of musical interaction, and a persistent drive for ‘the lolz’, which will result in acceptance and applause from all present… Come and be entertained if you dare, and embrace the Jazzkaban experience.
