Immerse yourself in a series of participatory performances where random words become lyrics and everyday sounds become melodies, as performers create compositions in real-time based on your suggestions. Download the Tinmendoapp and arrive armed with a fully-charged smartphone to get involved in this exciting, multi-faceted residency with the highly-acclaimed Amsterdam-based Tin Men and the Telephone.


A 21st-century gig in which multimedia gadgetry and a sense of mischief combined to create something fresh and unexpected. Roe and his friends were reminding us — in captivating style — that jazz can be fun and profound at the same time.”

***** The Times (Ronnie Scott’s 2017)


Please ensure that you download the Tinmendo app to your phone before the performance and that your phone is fully charged.
