This evening was a showcase of young Australian jazz talent. Shannon has emerged a a virtuoso of what surely must be a challenging instrument, having been 2007 Young Australian Jazz Artist of the Year. The Vampires are quickly becoming an icon on the Australian jazz scene with their unique blend of soulful jazz, old-school reggae and South American music. Nick was runner-up in the 2010 National Jazz Awards at Wangaratta.
