Fakejazz Orchestra Bands, Artists & Musicians

Fakejazz Orchestra is a Kinston-based, jazz-adjacent duo comprised of Nicholas Lennox (saxophones) and Henry Lawrence (drums). Despite their minimalist instrumentation, this unlikely pairing conveys a dynamic and mighty sound, offering fresh interpretations of jazz, funk, and rock standards. With this project, Lennox and Lawrence harness years of prior collaboration to create a new experience that is at once tightly calculated and highly exploratory. Taking inspiration from small horn-based ensembles such as Moon Hooch and Too Many Zooz, Fakejazz Orchestra brings a full band’s worth of energy with half the players, one note at a time.
