SAM BOON QUINTET
Song: All In
Location: City Oval Bowling Club, Lake Wendouree

The Sam Boon Quintet comprises some of the most sought-after session musicians in Aus. Having all met when studying together at institutions such as the VCA and NMIT around 10 years ago, each member has forged a strong individual career in their own right with members having toured and studied extensively including in New York and the USA, Europe, The UK, and Asia.

With over a decade of professional experience as a multi-instrumentalist, musical director, composer, and arranger, Sam Boon has forged a diverse sound, collaborating with some of Australia, and the world’s great acts.

After several years of touring nationally and internationally as a founding member of Melbourne’s own Saskwatch, Sam was invited to arrange and lead the horn section for platinum-selling artist Guy Sebastian’s first-ever stadium tour of Australia. Since then, Sam has played for the likes of TLC, The Rubens, Vance Joy, Big Words, Fulton St, Mia Wray, The Damien Ellis Quartet, and Adam Simmons’ Creative Music Ensemble.

As an arranger, orchestrator and composer Sam has had works premiered at the Melbourne Recital Centre as part of the Melbourne Festival and his original orchestrations and arrangements forming the entire program of the 2019 Ballarat Carols by Candlelight.
