David Theak

Theak-tet was founded in 1997 to provide a platform for original improvised music compositions. Theak-tet achieves musical synergy by working together as a unit as this allows a freedom and communication not often possible with thrown together groups. The group plays original, harmonically inventive, melodic compositions that provide a platform for flowing improvisations.

Previously nominated for Australian Jazz Groupof the Year, performance Highlights include Jazzclub Fasching (Stockholm, Sweden), Copenhagen Jazzhouse (Denmark), Apriljazz International Festival (Helsinki, Finland), Royal Garden Jazzclub (Graz, Austria), Brussels Jazz Marathon (Belgium), Unterfahrt Munich Germany), Kaiserkeller (Detmold, Germany), Basement (Sydney), Bennetts Lane (Melb), Side On Café (SIMA), Lansdowne Hotel (Jazz Groove Collective) , Sydney Uni Jazz Festival, Strawberry Hills Hotel (SIMA), Hopetoun Hotel, Manly International Jazz Festival. The group successfully toured Europe in 2004 & 2001 where they played to strong audiences in some of Europe’s finest jazz venues. In January 2000 the group also undertook a highly successful tour of Australia where the group performed to sell out crowds in Sydney, Melbourne, and regional Australia as well as being recorded live at Bennett's Lane, Melbourne ABC Jazz Track for National radio.
