Having all grown up together in Perth, Western Australia, The Love Rats have a deep musical connection that spans over 10 years, resulting in a unique, creative sound.

The band lived and studied together at the prestigious James Morrison Academy of Music, where they studied under the tutelage of some of Australia’s most renowned and in demand jazz musicians.

Each individual member has a unique musical voice, informed by a broad taste in music, coming together as a collective to create an inspired sound.

The performance will feature a mixture of exciting original compositions as well as arrangements of classic tunes. This is a show to not be missed!
