World Cup commentary with live instrumental improv

June 30th, 2006 · No Comments


You can head to any pub in England to watch the World Cup, but if you want to have a little fun to you can head to the Vortex Jazz Club in Dalston. They are holding the World Cup Jazz Balls where the commentary is replaced with teams of musicians improving throughout the game. A laff, I’m sure.

The club has held several of these occasions already and plans more (ring them for the latest details), but a lively crowd (and pair of bands) is guaranteed for Saturday afternoon when England’s footballers clash with the Portuguese. Next Wednesday night (England’s semi if they get through) promises to be a sonic experience and a half as the bands expand to a quintet versus a sextet (we presume there’s been a pre-match sending off for ungentlemanly keyboard playing in the tunnel). If England get to the final there might be a pair of dance orchestras in there.
