Zephyrs Presents: The Vampires
Sunday 11 October 2015, 2pm, Windsong Pavilion
"Zephyrs Jazz invites you to our next concert, which will feature a band that Lloyd Swanton (of ‘The Necks’, ‘The Catholics’ and ‘The Alister Spence Trio’) has described as ‘an absolute must-have for festivals anywhere in the world’.
We agree. And we also think that The Vampires will be a perfect follow-on from our last (and sold-out) concert. So to be sure, get your tickets early, or at least mark the date in your diaries, for another of our Sunday afternoons of the best of contemporary Australian jazz heard live in a truly excellent Far South Coast performance space."
