Tables and chairs will be cleared to make room for a dance floor!
Riffz2000 create instant organic remixes in front of your very eyes and ears, an improvising beat making rhythm section playing along and reacting to ripped samples from the library of our collective musical consciousness.
With a mash up of riffs from the ages, every riff ever could be in play. Pop, Soul and R&B are all mashed up with live crossfades and a bunch of made up stuff. Part beats/part memory jogger – all head nodding.
Riffs are the backbone of society, uniting the human condition, everyone has brandished a tennis racket or broom handle at some point in their life to play along to their favourites.
