Tom Botting Exile Ensemble

Up-until-quite-recently-based-in-Sydney double bassist and composer Tom Botting returns to
one of New Zealand’s greatest pubs with a motley crew of Wellington’s finest musicians,
improvisors and foremost athletes in the new sports craze sweeping the nation, ‘Drink the
Beers’. Presenting a fresh bunch of large ensemble cinematic jazz odysseys, Tom promises that
this will be “a night of much jollity and frivolity. I mean, have you been to the Rogue? It’s
fricken AWESOME”.

If you’re thinking to yourself “yeah that’s all cool but who exactly IS this ‘Tom Botting’ and why
should I care?” then read some of these things: After relocating from Auckland to Sydney in late
2011, Tom quickly forged a path into the Australian jazz scene. His impressive abilities as a
sideman and bassist have led to playing opportunities with jazz luminaries as diverse as Roger
Manins, Dale Barlow, James Muller, Walter Smith III, Vince Jones, and The Jazzgroove
Mothership Orchestra. Tom placed third at Australia’s prestigious National Jazz Awards held as
part of the 2015 Wangaratta Jazz Festival and recently completed a PhD at the Sydney
Conservatorium of Music. Recent highlights include a tour to South Korea with Wellington based
8 piece ensemble The Jac, recording and releasing albums with The Earshift Orchestra
and metal-jazz group Scoredatura, touring with trans-tasman collaborative band Antipodes,
presenting his own music at the 2019 Wellington Jazz Festival, presenting new music for large
ensemble as part of Wellington’s Arthur Street Loft Orchestra series, and releasing a solo
double bass album in March 2020.
