Old House Playground is a three piece contemporary blues/alt-rock band with roots in the songwriting culture of traditional Greek folk music.

The band consists of Tryfon Lazos on guitars and vocals, Andreas Venetantes on drums and percussion, and Jago Furnas on bass and backing vocals.

In 2009, Tryfon and Andreas together with Conor Loughran (ex bass player), moved from Athens to Manchester to experiment with new musical paths and forms of expression.

September 2014 finds the band with a new bass player. Jago Furnas moved from London to Manchester to join the band and his musicality has proved inspiring. Sugar House’s production has also been key in moving forward. Their latest EP, 'The Great Escape' was released on 22nd June 2015, is the result of this ongoing commitment, and strips down the band’s sound. Melodies are more exposed, there is a fluency to the band’s work, old boundaries have been broken, and new forms created. The new songs have been given airplay around the world and received excellent reviews around blogs and online music press.

The band’s new single “21st Century Glory” is to be released on the 16th of November as digital download but can be heard during the New Music Show airing daily at 8am and 8pm on Jamsterdam Radio.
