This joy-filled class offers the opportunity for parents to sing, dance and shake along to songs from around the world and original tunes.
After tearing paths all across Europe and the United States in 2013, WorldService Project are quickly becoming one of the rising star bands of the UK. Led by pianist/composer Dave Morecroft, WSP’s music speaks through dark, playful building passages, winding through dissonance, complex rhythmic manipulation and downright silliness. Other times it draws on the language of 20th Century Classical composers layered over boisterous grooves more commonly found in albums by heavy rock artists. In essence, imagine a (loud!) four-way cage match between Frank Zappa, Loose Tubes, Stravinsky and Meshuggah. The result is high-octane experimental but accessible music with a smile on its face.
WSP are Dave Morecroft - keys, Tim Ower - sax, Raph Clarkson - trombone, Conor Chaplin - bass, Liam Waugh - drums
"…tight, deftly structured and grittily grooving music…" John Fordham, The Guardian
