Get The Blessing + Power Out – Gosforth Civic Theatre

20.10.2023, 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Get The Blessing + Power Out Gosforth Civic Theatre Newcastle upon Tyne

Get The Blessing are an energetic British formation from the ranks of Radiohead and Portishead that goes beyond rock, jazz and trip-hop with their unique kaleidoscopic sound.

Originally drawn together through a shared appreciation of Ornette Coleman and keeping the spirit of his ground-breaking free jazz alive, the Bristol quartet can be placed among a number of bands innovating British jazz with contemporary rock, dance and hip-hop influences.

The infectious beats of the foursome come from bassist Jim Barr and drummer Clive Deamer, rhythm section of the legendary trip-hop act Portishead. Deamer is also live drummer for Radiohead. The mutant, spacey jazz tones come from Pete Judge (trumpet, electronics) and Jake McMurchie (sax, electronics). Their most recent album, Bristopia, features guest appearances by Portishead guitarist Adrian Utley and can be considered the highlight of their oeuvre to date.
