The Recliners

“The Recliners deliver a sparklingly enjoyable time”

We are a fun and unique acoustic quartet who serve up satirical originals and covers in a classic blues and classic early r&b style. Featuring trumpet, piano, bass and drums.

Highly suited to festivals, outdoor markets and events, we are based in Brisbane city. We can also cut down to The Lazy Boys - a jazz standards acoustic group for quieter background music gigs.

Vyvyan Black: Vocals, Trumpet, Blues Harp
Burak Ulugüney: Piano, Keys
Erik Van Der Weyden: Fretless Bass
James Pryce-Davies: Drums
