The Lagerphones 4th Japan Tour
The Melbourne-based, six-piece ensemble The Lagerphones, whose party jazz sound pays homage to everything from traditional jazz to rock to Dixieland, returns to Japan for a 15-date tour of mostly free shows.
The Aussies, who are supporting their new album ATARA-CD, have built an enthusiastic following in Japan, return for their fourth tour in less than as many years. For the first time they will perform shows in Kyoto and Osaka in addition to Tokyo.
