The Syncopators

One of Australia’s leading jazz groups. This 7-piece band has an extensive repertoire from traditional swing to jump jive.

Formed in 1984 by ex-leader of New Harlem, Chris Ludowyk handpicked the cream of Melbourne’s jazz talent to form the Society Syncopators, now known as ‘The Syncopators’. 

With their versatility (the guitarist plays banjo, the bassist plays tuba, the clarinettist plays alto and tenor sax, and the trombonist plays bass and piano) they cover a wide range of styles and material. The vocal harmonising talent of the front-line also lends itself to the performance of popular jazz material a la Mills Brothers and Boswell Sisters.
