A new season of music has been unveiled at Warwick Arts Centre for the autumn with an eclectic mix from Jazz Fusion and alt-rock to Bollywood Brass (yes new to us too). Whatever your tastes it seems covered with a quality line up.
Amongst the highlights of the season is Grammy-nominated pianist Chilly Gonzales who’ll be bringing his new show Solo Piano II to the intimate confines of the Studio on the 3rd December.
A virtuoso on the keys, with an inimitable talent for foot-tapping rhythms, he’s a musical maestro and a joy to see live. Past Gonzales incarnations have seen him as a producer, hip-hopper and the go-to guy for piano compositions (he’s worked with Daft Punk, Drake and Feist in the past). Classical this is not – Chilly has a habit of combining all-his incarnations in to a live performance.
Meanwhile Spiritualised take to the stage for their only midlands performance on the 4th November with cosmic, gospel-tinged psychedelic tunes of love, heartache and pain from frontman Jason Pierce.
If you’re looking for something upbeat then be prepared to dance into the night thanks to a setlist of jazz, hip-hop, funk and disco from DJ supremo Mr Scruff, who will be at the controls in the Butterworth Hall on the 24th November.
