Originally from Brisbane, Lachlan McKenzie has resided in Sydney since 2021. Since this move, Lachlan has had the opportunity to perform with leading Sydney musicians/groups such as James Morrison, John Harkins, Andrew Robertson Big Band, Hammerhead, Andrew Dickeson, Aaron Blakey, ANJO Youth Big Band, and Dave Panichi Big Band. Lachlan recently toured his quartet to Osaka, Japan to perform at the 25th annual Takatsuki Jazz Street Festival. Lachlan’s trumpet playing and music is influenced by a wide range of artists and music across the jazz lineage, all the way from Kenny Dorham to Ambrose Akinmusire.

For this rare Brisbane performance, Lachlan will be joined by local legends Damian Sim (piano), Elliott Parker (double bass), and Aaron Jansz (drums).
