Groove Baby: Groove into Space

Saturday 18 November
Main Space
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 fueled family adventure into space!

Go on...

Groove Baby returns to the EFG London Jazz Festival with another exciting and entertaining show especially for 0 - 5 year old's and their grown-ups!

Following their sell out show 'Groove Into the Woods', the Groove Baby Organ Trio will take families on a mysterious journey through space meeting a host of kooky aliens along the way.

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). 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).

As part of the concert, the audience will join in the music making to create a magical musical star-scape. Please download the Groove Into Space APP from Rumpus Animation. Available on both iTunes and Play Store. It's FREE!

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 interactive music making using basic props such as body percussion, hand percussion, mobile phones and toys. There will be eclectic moments of noise and music creating a fast paced theatre experience.

Who's Involved

The Groove Baby Organ Trio are a searing rhythm machine featuring Phil Stevenson on guitar, Cameron Reynolds on Hammond organ and Chris Nickolls on drums. Also known as Root Down, this trio return to the festival after their sell-out shows in 2015/16 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, playing along and crying are all welcome.
