Fitkin Band - UK Tour
, United Kingdom
Fitkin's nine-piece band treats minimalism and contemporary musics in irreverential and exuberant fashion. Combining piano, percussion, guitar, harps, and brass section with Bee-Gees style countertenors, this composer-led band is characterised by infectious rhythms and intricate grooves.
The perfect setting for Fitkin's latest work 'Don't Take This The Wrong Way' - celebrating the emancipation of dance and social freedom in the disco era but from the twisted perspective of our current celebrity icon-tumbling era, featuring the wonderful Melanie Pappenheim.
Joby Burgess contributes an array of percussion including drum set, marimba, an assortment of toys and berimbau to this high energy and infectious ensemble.
