Excursions

Beats, Rhymes and Mirth.

Beats Rhymes Mirth

So this was Beats, Rhymes & Mirth Numero Uno: the precursor to Excursions. Designed as a hybrid of improvisation, jazz and hip hop. In the springtime in 2011 it set everything in motion for everything you see now. Was it ropey? Yes. Was it fun? Yes.

You can see Rob Grundel leading his trio Furniture (with Phil Wain on bass and Tadas Petrikas on drums) and David Waller co-hosting with his Marbles partner Ryan Millar.

Below are some videos that documented the night.

The herons. The herons. All of the herons.
