Surprise Chef - ‘Education & Recreation’ Album Launch
Over the last four months we’ve played everywhere from Birmingham to Brooklyn to Ballarat, dealt with covid, food poisoning, floods, fatigue, date changes and venue changes. We’ve been through a lot on the road, and still have managed not to miss a single show. It’s a cruel twist of fate that we’ve met our match on one of the final shows of the tour.
We’ve been looking forward to returning to Sydney to finish up the Education & Recreation tour for months, and having to pull out last minute is deeply disappointing to say the least.
The good news is we have a new date confirmed for Friday Jan 13th at Oxford Art Factory.

Coburg's finest, Surprise Chef return to blow the lid off OAF and launch their brand new album "Education & Recreation" on Big Crown Records. Supported by the incredible Ella Haber playing live with selections from Casey & Eddy Diamond to get you limbered up from doors. The bands only syd show and one not to be missed.
Surprise Chef’s cinematic soul is based on evoking mood; their vivid arrangements utilize time and space to build
soundscapes that invite the listener into their world. The quintet’s distinct sound pulls from 70s film scores, the funkier side of jazz, and the samples that form the foundation of hip hop. Humbly blurring genre lines and seamlessly weaving elements of yesteryear with today, they push the boundaries of instrumental soul and funk with their own approach honed by countless hours in the studio, studying the masters, and perhaps most importantly, the ‘tyranny of distance’ that dictates a unique perspective on the music that guides them.
Their first two albums All News Is Good News and Daylight Savings amassed a die-hard fanbase and brought their sound from Melbourne, Australia to every corner of the globe. The band now has a home on Big Crown Records, joining a lineage of contemporary and classic sounds that have influenced Surprise Chef’s music since the band’s formation in 2017.
Surprise Chef work out of their sharehouse studio, dubbed The College Of Knowledge. The 100-year-old house is the
namesake of the artist-led grassroots independent record label that has served to release the band’s now-coveted
pressings, alongside other key releases from Melbourne’s emerging scene of left-field instrumental funk and soul.
