RnB Classics on Sunday 26th September 2021
This September, Paradox Orchestra invite you to come down and ‘Get Ya Freak On’ at Manchester’s O2 Ritz as they present RnB Classics, an unmissable night of all of your favourite tunes from the golden era of the early 00s, reimagined in a way that you have never heard them before.
Paradox Orchestra are a brand new ensemble, a 30-piece powerhouse comprised of some of the UK’s most in demand session musicians who have worked with everyone from Little Mix to Craig David, Liam Gallagher and Louis Tomlinson.
You will be taken on a journey back to the start of the millennium as you indulge in a blockbuster back to back two and a half hour set of some of the era’s biggest hits from the likes of Destiny’s Child, Sean Paul, Kelis, Outkast and The Black Eyed Peas.
Promoter Mikey Sluman said; “We can’t wait to bring Paradox Orchestra to the people of Manchester, a city that has one of the most vibrant music scenes in the world. The orchestra is made up of musicians who have worked with the likes of Kano, Elizabeth Troy, Celeste, Sugababes, Marc Almond, So Solid Crew, Naughty Boy…the list is endless! It’s a top, hand picked orchestra with only the best musicians in the industry. I can promise you will be leaving the O2 Ritz having been dancing nonstop all night and having enjoyed one of the best parties you’ve had this year. Having been a resident of Manchester for over 6 years I know how much the people of this fine city have missed a good night out and I can guarantee they are going to love this show.”
RnB Classics is the first show from Paradox Orchestra, one that has been in the pipeline since 2018, brought to you by a team of professional orchestrators, DJs and arrangers, all of whom have been deeply ingrained in the session, classical, pop and jazz music industries for the last decade.
Musical Director Laurence Mason said; “It’s been really exciting orchestrating all of this incredible music for the show, I’ve been transcribing our original mixes by our resident DJ, Tom Langur by ear to create a bespoke set of parts for the orchestra and five of the most outstanding vocalists to perform. This is going to be a really unique gigging experience brought to you by some amazing musicians. The crossover of pop, jazz and classical is going to take the audience on such a high energy journey, the way Tom has mixed the songs is really unique to our production. Everyone is going to be leaving the show wanting to come back again and again!'
