Groove Baby: Groove Into Space
Saturday 3 March
All orders will be subject to a fee of £1.50 except if your tickets are free or if you are a member
In a nutshell
Come on a jazz and funk fuelled family adventure into space!
A big family favourite in the London Jazz Festival, Groove Baby returns to the Rich Mix with another exciting and entertaining show especially for 0 - 5 year old's and their grown-ups!
Created for families with children up to the age of 5, this programme is a pleasing mix of storytelling, interactive music-making and movement (for the little ones) with outstanding moon jazz, interstellar soul and space funk (for everyone).
Download the free Groove Into Space APP from Rumpus Animation so you can take part in our interactive STAR-SCAPE during the show (that’s right – use your mobile phone in the show!). Available on both iTunes and Play Store.
Strap on your space suits and get ready to moonwalk, sing, play along and feed your need to hear top music all at the same time. Specially designed to be a midpoint between kid shows and adult concerts this show has something for everyone (in the universe).
What to Expect
Groove Into Space is designed to be a midpoint between children’s entertainment and ‘regular’ adult concerts. The show follows an original narrative told by the band as a story interspersed with a mixture of original tunes and (space) jazz classics. This will be mixed with moments of physical and musical interactivity using basic props such as body percussion and mobile phones. All mixed together creating a fast paced and engaging theatre experience.
The Groove Baby Organ Trio are a searing rhythm machine featuring Laurence Corns on guitar, Cameron Reynolds on Hammond organ and Chris Nickolls on drums. The GBO3 return to the Rich Mix after sell-out shows in 2015, 16 and 17 London Jazz Festivals which saw the young and not-so-young shaking their stuff.
The trio’s lyrical, funky compositions are inspired by the funk greats such as James Brown, Funkadelic and Sly Stone, and Blue Note legends Grant Green, Lonnie Smith and Jimmy Smith.
Groove Baby present jazz, world and contemporary music concerts. Designed for parents and carers with babies/toddlers, they have a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in which singing, dancing, crying and playing along are all welcome.
