The Necks

2023 Artists

“…Entirely new and entirely now… They produce a post-jazz, post-rock, post-everything sonic experience that has few parallels or rivals. They may teach us to listen in a new way, but they communicate a fierce energy and warmth at the same time. Their music is a thrilling, emotional journey into the unknown. Like seeing a world in a grain of sand, The Necks permit us to hear a whole new world of music in a sliver of sound.”

Having recently been recognised for the Distinguished Services to Music at the Apra Art Music Awards, The Necks have carved out a long and esteemed international career unparalleled any other Australian jazz act. The New York Times have called them “One of the Greatest Bands in the World”. The experience of experiencing The Necks in a Victorian Gothic Revival Church is one not to be missed.
