Rocking the Classics is a unique arrangements of well known Classical music ‘hits’ provides a fantastic evening’s entertainment for all ages.
The creator of this show started to experiment in 2008 with rock arrangements of well known classical pieces. Taking the music of Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Tchaikovsky etc into another area. One aim is to bring these well known “classics” to a new audience, people who wouldn’t go to a traditional classical concert but would enjoy the arrangements from Steve.
To begin with he formed BAROK. Steve on guitar, 2 x keyboard players, a bassist and drummer, complete with period costumes.Next came the idea of adding a couple of singers who could handle the demands of well known operatic works but deliver them with a rock/ pop attitude. Took a while but eventually we found our amazing singers. Male and female.Ok, what next?
Ballet dancers of course.Steve works closely on Barok with his wife Deena, a well known tv actress in the uk, with a wealth of experience in theatre. Cut a long story short, Steve got his ballet dancers. They are brilliant dancers and totally crazy, a good mix for Barok.
‘ROCKING THE CLASSICS’ is available as a one man show with Steve on guitar/vocal using his own custom backing tracks. He can also provide visuals that accompany the show by ‘plugging into’ media at the venue.
The addition of two fantastic vocalists to the show. Male and female.
As above but with 4 x amazing versatile ballet dancers.
