Friday 1 September
Sagrada Familia + Mike Rivett (Sydney Fringe Festival)
Reigning from the suburbs of Sydney this seven piece grind out a fresh flavour rather than regurgitating their influences. Hip-Hop and Jazz meet between the sheets in an energised sound full of heavy beats and liquid harmony. The New Soul brand could apply but this is not the result of that often heavily produced genre. Raw at the edges this is a band growing before our ears.
Mike Rivett will be performing a solo set of saxophone, piano and electronics. This highly esteemed musician explores a vast electro-acoustic world of jazz, dance floor and experimental genres. Rivett has performed all over the world, after graduating from the Manhattan School of music, where he was taught by Jazz greats David Liebman and George Garzone.
