Avzal Ismail, Neill Ettridge, Denis Lalouette, Brendan Ross
The group specializes in Smooth Jazz, both Modern and African, mainstream jazz, fusion as well as an extensive Latin / Afro-Cuban repertoire capable of exceeding the demands of any event, function or concert environment. As professional working musicians, they are sensitive to the needs of every individual client and will go out of our way to make their event a resounding success by supplying the right entertainment for the appropriate event. We do not believe in a “one size fits all” policy. Not only does the group’s repertoire cover a large range of contemporary, sophisticated styles, but Light Years is also particularly adept at handling background music of a more “complimentary” nature, where volume, and ambience are a prime consideration. The Group comprises as its core some of the most sought after musicians in the country. They are: Avzal Ismail: Keyboards, Neill Ettridge: Drums, Denis Lalouette: Bass, Brendan Ross: Sax and Vocals
