Why does Rich Mix matter?
'I have been to Rich Mix for a deaf people's concert a few years ago and it was one of the greatest nights ever. The way the night was presented and engineered was brilliant. It felt like an inclusive and community minded venue. I never even knew there were such places promoting such interesting and enlightened community programs. I have been a fan ever since and look forward to taking to that stage.'
