Jazz Meets Dancehall is our first gig in the ‘Musical Exchanges’ series that In The Moment are running in association with Culturefest 2022.  This is the festival running alongside the Commonwealth Games here in Leamington and Warwick.

Jazz and Dancehall are like old friends. They may not see each other for a while, but all the mutual respect and affection is still there. Interplay is welcoming back two fantastic guest musicians – Annie Whitehead (trombone) and Claude Deppa (trumpet).  Claude is from South Africa originally, and Annie has worked with many South African musicians including Brotherhood of Breath.  So we will celebrate the presence of South African music in British Jazz, and also the impact of Caribbean music via the infectious dance rhythms of Reggae and Ska. There is space for dancing as well as sitting, so if you want to move you can move!

Family-friendly pricing

In The Moment are keen to attract more family groups to its events and so for the first time are offering a discount to under 18s.  They are also offering a free ticket for a carer to accompany someone with a disability. Check the ticket link for details.

Music improvisation workshop

Also associated with ‘Musical Exchanges’ is a series of workshops that link to the music in the performances.  So Adrian Litvinoff and Alan Wakeman of Interplay are hosting a music improvisation workshop on August 13th, also at the Nelson Club in Warwick. More details of this and the other workshops will be available very soon on In The Moment’s Facebook page.

In The Moment gratefully acknowledge the support of Warwick Town Council in making these events possible.
