Juggenaught are a Birmingham based Quartet, led by upcoming pianist Piera Onacko. Incorporating soundscapes and open passages with heavy grooves and structured bass lines, the band draw from avant-garde and experimental influences to create a visceral ensemble sound.
Following appearances including Cheltenham, Lancaster and Marsden Jazz Festivals, Spice of Life and Symphony Hall, Juggenaught are continuing to make a name for themselves on the UK jazz scene. Early 2022 will bring a new EP featuring the recent addition of baritone saxophone to the band.
“I have heard Juggenaught on several occasions and love both Piera’s compositions and the way the band interacts with each other.” – Tony Dudley-Evans, Programme Adviser, BMusic/Cheltenham Jazz Festival
