Bio

“Lyrical melodies, hard-hitting polyrhythms, EST/Tigran-style progressive grooves and no shortage of Aussie humour…” 

- Jazzwise UK

Brekky Boy are an Australian electronic jazz rock trio who chuck things at each other on stage and occasionally play in 4/4. Giving up the dream of competing in the World Surf League, Brekky Boy decided to have a go at jazz. Their latest EP ‘Seita’ was not nominated in the 2024 Grammy Awards but received praise from uncles and aunties alike. 

The Montreux Jazz Award nominees have toured the world in search of the best hot dog at festivals SXSW (US), Montréal International Jazz Festival (CA), Montreux Jazz Festival (CH), London Jazz Festival (UK), Jazzahead (DE), Saalfelden Jazz Festival (AT) but are yet to find the winner. 

In 2023 Brekky Boy performed at the same time as Snarky Puppy in Ottawa and 44% of the crowd didn't leave. In 2024 they will support Snarky Puppy in Sydney and are hoping that number goes up to 45%.

“Few greater joys exist than hearing something that surprises the hell out of you – like music did when you were 16. Brekky Boy does that.” - John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald

 

"With celebrity fans and a unique sound, this band doesn’t need labels." - Nick Galvin, Sydney Morning Herald

 

"A sublime Sydney jazz trio that remind me of Minneapolis’ The Bad Plus." - Dan Condon, Double J

 

“Brekky Boy righteously had one of the most well-attended sets at the OLG stage so far.” - Luke Pearson, Exclaim! Canada
