An innovative production, Jazz Tennis at Rich Mix merges the unexpected disciplines of competitive sport and harmonic music with inspired effect.
Who are they?
The internationally acclaimed jazz quartet in fact go by the name Paragon and their work is widely influenced by everything from Stravinsky to pop anthems of the eighties.
What is it?
It’s pretty much what it says on the tin. Jazz and tennis are the basic ingredients, but the show is rather an eclectic compilation of music and performance art, with only a hint at actual sport yet lashings of comedy. Paragon offer a rather less costly, and perhaps more inventive take on Wimbledon. So if these are key in your list of priorities, then Jazz Tennis at Rich Mix might be right along your baseline.
When is it?
Picking up racquets and saxophones on the final day of Wimbledon, the Jazz Tennis at Rich Mix is gig, set, match to round off the royal event on the 3rd July.
Watching Jazz Tennis at Rich Mix will include an afternoon and evening of live music, dancers, a bar, a public tennis court, video highlights, as well as the all important strawberries and cream.
Jazz Tennis at Rich Mix Bar takes place from 12pm – 11pm, Sunday 3rd July 2011.
