Theo Parrish Rare Live show – London
Tickets: £14.00, 15.50
Times: 7pm - 11pm
Soundcrash joins forces with Red Bull Music Academy and Lovebox festival to announce two live shows with Theo Parrish, in London and Manchester. The shows will fall days ahead of his headline performance on the Red Bull Music Academy stage at Saturday’s Lovebox, as part of his Teddy’s Get Down tour.
The word legend is overused. Theo Parrish is a legend in the full meaning of the word. Over the past two decades he has come to be regarded as a true great in electronic and soul music. A graduate of the Detroit underground, Theo is famed for his own seamlessly genre-hopping productions as well as for his impeccable and inscrutable skills as a music selector, with sets swerving dangerously between house, funk, disco and techno and more.
Theo, whose organic-sounding machine-based dance music incorporates live instruments, human voices and looped recordings, returns to the live arena with full band for the first time in 10 years. The line-up features soul/funk singer songwriter Amp Fiddler (keys), Akwasi Mensah (bass), Duminie DePorres (electric guitar) and Myele Manzanza (drums) alongside Parrish on beats and keys. They will be revisiting Sound Signature classics old and new.
Theo comments, ‘Whatupdoe, greetings from Detroit. London, Lovebox, Manchester, see you at the Red Bull Music Academy stage this summer, it’s going down.’
