Lebowskis is a musician-run cooperative dedicated to presenting a diverse program of original, creative jazz and improvised music.

The co-operative’s mission is to nurture Melbourne’s improvised music scene by offering artists complete creative freedom in a welcoming environment. 

Conceived in 2004 by Eugene Ball and Stephen Magnusson, Lebowskis’ first residency was Friday nights at the Fitzroy Bowling Club.

It was formed with the intention of providing more performance opportunities for musicians playing original jazz and improvised music, and has stayed true to this ethos ever since.

Lebowskis events now occur every Sunday, 5-7pm at Cross Street Music Hall.

If you are a performer of original, improvisation-oriented music and would like a spot in the program, contact Lebowskis; they are always looking for new groups!
