Lachlan's obsession with music began at the age five, inspired by piano lessons from his mother. Soon enough, though, Lachlan's interest would turn to drumming which has formed his passion for the past fourteen years.

When he is not performing, Lachlan teaches drums to students of all ages, and has recently completed his Bachelor of Music for which he received first class honours.
Lachlan is inspired by drumming greats such as Elvin Jones, Buddy Rich, John Bonham and Brian Blade.
Peter Boyages is truly a veteran of the bass clef, as an accomplished bass guitarist, double bassist, and trombonist. He is gifted with an incredible ear for harmony, and lays the vital foundations upon which the rest of Sydney Live Jazz thrive.
Peter's musical tastes are varied, and he draws upon artists as diverse as George Benson, Michael Jackson, and Herbie Hancock to name a few.
Despite being a relative latecomer to the world of music, Sydney Live Jazz's male vocalist of choice, Tom Stevenson, is definitely making up for lost time. Tom has featured prominently in a number of high school and university productions, in addition to featuring as a solo artist in jazz venues throughout Australia.
Tom has a passion for crooning, and a strong jazz and music theatre repertoire. Nevertheless, Tom isn't afraid to tackle pop, disco or rock tunes, and delights in performing and being on stage.
Tom lists his artistic influences as Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, and Michael Bublé. Tom further draws influence from music theatre personalities Hugh Jackman and John Barrowman.
