Rob Deering – Music Face (CKP)

By | Published on Wednesday 20 August 2014

Rob Deering opens with an attempt to transport us from George Street to Woodstock. It takes some cajoling but, before long, a competent wolf whistler has been identified, the audience is clapping along and things start coming together nicely. Using a loop pedal to build layers of tracks, he takes us through some personal music history, including “bleepy dance music” – good for raves back in the day, good for running now (the running is for Parkinson’s research look up his justgiving page for more). His knowledge, skill and love for music really comes across, with plenty of laughs before a finale involving bubbles, bongos and a remote control helicopter. You won’t get that on George Street at any other time of year.

Assembly Rooms, until 24 Aug.
