The Bennetts Lane BIG Band

The Bennetts Lane Big Band formed in 2001 with the aim of developing a forum for contemporary compositions for extended jazz ensemble. The band now has an extensive repertoire of original compositions from composers within the band, and occasionally commissions works from writers beyond the ensemble.

The ensemble features some of the Australia’s finest improvising musicians and composers/arrangers, and has performed with featured artists including Satoko Fujii (JPN) and Gian Slater (AUS). The band has performed at the Wangaratta International Jazz Festival, Melbourne International Jazz Festival and the Stonington Jazz Festival, and plays on the first Monday of every month at Bennetts Lane Jazz Club in Melbourne.
