Led by drummer and composer extraordinaire John Rae and featuring a string quartet alongside rhythm section and horns, The Troubles play a chaotic brand of jazz that is an absolute must see.

Patrick Bleakley, John Rae and Lucien Johnson first came together in 2009 at the iconic Wellington music venue Happy and held a residency in New Zealand’s capital city for 4 years. The Troubles recorded a critically acclaimed CD on Rattle Records, ‘The Troubles”, available from the Rattle website and will be recording a new CD this year.
