Well-versed trio The Necks are often pinned as a jazz mini-ensemble, other times characterised by their not-quite avant-garde, minimalist, ambient sound. However you describe them, this group comprised of Chris Abrahams (piano), Tony Buck (drums) and Lloyd Swanton (bass) have come to be known as one of the great cult bands of Australia.

They specialise in lengthy pieces, those which unravel themselves to reveal mesmerising, deep grooves only made possible by longstanding and well crafted chemistry. With sixteen albums to their name and a new release reigniting the flame of anticipation, The Necks are back with a sound worth reacquainting yourself with.

They have received a long string of praise in the wake of their live shows, and are coming to our own Powerhouse Theatre for one night only.
