The Prevaricators are a fresh jazz septet based in Leiden, the Netherlands. Covering a wide range of vintage and contemporary jazz styles, The Prevaricators deliver an entertaining performance in any setting. They combine a positive vibe with artistic depth, voyaging beyond the more conventional jazz entertainment.

Prevaricator ​[pri-var-i-key-ter]: a person who speaks so as to avoid the precise truth.

Prevarication [pri-var-i-key-shuh-n]: to behave in an indecisive manner.

So, who are the people behind The Prevaricators? Are they ambitious musicians who are impersonating professionals with a serious daytime job? Or is it the other way around? In fact they could never decide and pursue both their professional and artistic careers with the same enthusiasm.
