The Wurlitza are returning to Plymouth next Saturday when they perform to the soundtrack to Piccadilly at Devonport Guildhall.
Piccadilly is a film and live music experience which is set in London in the 1920s. Which takes place in the early club land scene of Soho and the immigrant district of Limehouse, a tale of dancing, love, jealousy and revenge. The piece captures the division between high and low society.
The five piece band from South East Cornwall first performed November last year at the Grade I listed venue, performing Diary of a Lost Girl. The silent film music composers are excited at the prospect of returning for their second performance. This time their show will be in aid of Open Hearts Open Borders and Plymouth’s Aid for Syria Appeal, which supports Syrian refugees who have fled to Plymouth for safety.
Wurlitza offers audiences a new experience through their performances by providing soundtracks to silent films which include elements of jazz, classical and contemporary music. With each performance carefully choreographed and taking into account the mood and themes of the various scenes.
The performance of Piccadilly will take place at Devonport Guildhall on Saturday 16 April at 8pm, with doors opening from 7:30pm. Tickets are only £10 each and are available by calling 01752 395028 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
