Event Preview: New Regency Orchestra @ EartH (London; Tuesday 14th December 2021 + more dates in 2022)

new regency orchestra earth

Beware of the front row for this night. With a twelve-piece horn and eight-piece rhythm section, some serious vibrations will be coming your way!

New Regency Orchestra is a new collaborative project curated by Lex Blondin and co-led by musical director and African diasporic multi-percussionist Crispin ‘Spry’ Robinson. Presenting an emphatic take on the Afro-Cuban music that became a burgeoning scene in New York in the Seventies, the big band collective aim to propel it into the modern day. Expect to see some of our London-based most talented jazz and Afro-Cuban musicians on stage.

They will be performing for four dates at a new monthly residency at EartH in Dalston, which kicks off on 14th December.  The following shows will bring some more heat to our winter season with the remaining performances on January 11th, February 15th and March 15th.

“We’re going to hit the refresh button every time. We’re going to come with new tunes, new edits, new soloists. Basically there are no limits. We want to surprise people and get creative. We might throw a grime MC right in the middle of it.”

This is a venue with a great sound system just to amp this up more. And with Gilles Peterson backing this band, it’ll be exciting to see what they produce. You can be sure it’ll be experimental, large and dance-floor heavy.
