The Jac return to the Wellington Jazz Festival for two sets of the cinematic, high-energy, genre-bending music that has made them Aotearoa's #1 progressive jazz octet.
"I don't like jazz, but I loved that!" - a happy punter
“On par with any global contemporary jazz bands...an exquisite slice of NZ jazz and one that deserves to be heard” - The Dominion Post
"If you could close your eyes and see a herd of deer running along a mountainside, weaving in and out of each other, this is what their music is like, for me." - The Sun (Bay of Plenty)
The Jac, has performed extensive tours in Aotearoa NZ, Australia and South Korea, collaborated with international world music sensation Black String and Wellington new music ensemble STROMA, and released two critically acclaimed albums. With members spread across Wellington, Montreal and Melbourne, this opportunity to see them performing live in the intimate upstairs loft of The Third Eye is not to be missed.
