Covering all mainland capital cities and some of the larger regional towns, they’ll be playing tracks off Aurora, a follow-up CD to their 2009 ARIA nominated album Tell It Like It Is.
Lead by pianist/composer Mark Isaacs, the band features great Australian instrumentalists - James Muller on guitar, Matt Keegan on saxophone, Brett Hirst on bass and Tim Firth on drums.
“I’m really looking forward to immersing myself in whatever we create each night while exploring the new compositions.” Isaacs said. “It’s always an exciting process with this band.”
