“Saturday 18th of April saw a conglomeration of the closest thing we have to Brisbane Jazz Music Royalty, presenting a showcase of Burt Bacharach tunes – the evening appropriately called –‘Jazzarach’!

Pitch perfect vocals where presented by Irene Bartlett, Francesca De Valance, Rachel Head while the musicians were favourites, Dave Spicer on keys, Peter Walters on Bass and Lachlan Hawkins on drums. All of this illustrious group are of course lecturers at the Queensland Conservatory of Music in their respected fields with exception of Lachlan who recently graduated but more than held his own with this impressive line up. This performance was polished, professional and world class-Burt would be proud! Look forward to having ‘ Jazzarach’ back!”

Lisa McKay, Brisbane Jazz Club


“Lachlan is a talented drummer and percussionist who is very focused, goal driven and a pleasure to work with. He is a reliable colleague, having worked with him in each others productions and together in the ensemble SoundStruck Percussion. His performance experience is extremely extensive and I highly recommend him as a drummer, percussionist, composer and teacher.”

Tsoof Baras (Brisbane percussionist, composer & teacher)

“We had the pleasure of the trio playing for us at our Inaugural Police Commissioner Lecture and Awards Dinner on the 9th of December 2013. The trio were professional, understanding and reliable.  The music was fantastic and we have received many many positive comments in relation to their performance.  Thanks again, we will be booking you again!”
