THE VAMPIRES EAST COAST TOUR 2020.
“Impeccable wit and relentless congeniality” Downbeat (US). “shared love of reggae, Afro-beat and jazz” (SMH). “seductive genre hopping creativity” The Guardian (UK).
Fresh from their European tour, The Vampires are back in Australia with 12 shows along the east coast, promoting their sixth release Pacifica.
The Vampires are trailblazers for a generation of creative talent from Sydney, having gained critical attention worldwide in the jazz community and beyond. Creating a distinctive sound that is undoubtedly their own.
Combining influences from around the world, the band has developed an original sound that has been compared to such diverse sources as Mulatu Astatke, Blue-Note Jazz, Electric Miles Davis, The Art Ensemble of Chicago, Bob Marley and Henri Texier. The ARIA nominated and Australian Music Prize shortlisted band has played at major jazz festivals in Australia and Europe, toured and recorded with internationally celebrated guitarist Lionel Loueke, released six albums and toured regularly since they started playing together in 2005.
