Jason Yarde celebrates the reboot of his large ensemble full of multi-instrumentalists; ACOUTASTiC BOMBASTiC and the release of their debut album.

Jason Yarde's ACOUTASTiC BOMBASTiC is an ensemble, formed out of a dream, that saw a handful of musicians exploring an epic array on instruments in a vast room. Now a reality, it features some of the most marvellous multi-instrumentalist and musical mavericks the UK has to offer. They'll be playing a selection from the Random Wishes and Abstract Dreams Suite alongside brand new music that allows the audience various opportunities in shaping the music - from what’s played to who plays it! The 10-14 piece lineup will include Eska, Seb Rochford, Julian Siegel, Orphy Robinson, Shanti Jayasinha, Marcina Arnold, Emma Smith, Neil Charles and Harry Brown. Nikki Yeoh will be covering the piano chair and there will be a few special guests including Daniel Louis on steel pan!

'A remarkable project from a hugely important British musician. A large ensemble roaming around an array of instruments with the audience taking a hand in what is played, who plays it and on what instruments! An interactive event in a fantastic intimate venue.'
