Bohjass is Tim Pledger's longest running band. Bohjass began in 1986 as a trio called Bohemian Jazz. Over the years Bohjass has played in many locations including a long standing residency at the Glengarry Castle Hotel in Redfern Sydney and many country NSW tours. After moving to Melbourne in early 1993 with his band Sufi Dervish, Tim reformed Bohjass after teaming up with musicians at NMIT in Collingwood in 1994. In 1995 Tim entered VCA under the direction of the legendary Brian Brown and met up with like minded improvisors including Belinda Woods, John O'Hagan, Will Guthrie, Cam Macallister, Will Poskitt and many others. In 1997 Bohjass won the VCA Atheneum Award as best Ensemble in the Improvisation stream. Bohjass has played in many venues over the years including the Sydney Opera House and  Bennetts Lane Jazz Club and has appeared at many festivals including Folk Rhythm and Life, quite a few Fringe festivals, Jazz Fringe festivals, The Quiet Music Festival, many High Vibes Festivals on High St Northcote and most recently at the Falls Festival at Lorne.
