Kinetika Bloco at the BRIT Awards

What a first performance for our 21st Birthday year – 4,000 LIVE audience at the 02 Arena and a TV audience of millions! We were honoured to be asked by Arlo Parks to join her band on stage at the BRIT awards this week. And even more excited when she won Breakthrough Artist. 12 of our brass and woodwind players were involved in the whole process and it was an amazing learning experience as well as a lot of fun. If you missed the show you can catch our performance here.

In a year that has devastated the music industry Arlo wanted to use her BRITs performance to platform young creative talent and she has also introduced us to Converse London. They are passionate about shining a light on young creatives and not only dressed us in shiny new Chuck Taylors but also have been hero-ing our players and mission on their social media.

We also got a mention in the Guardian – what a year so far!

“I’ve always said that if I got a platform I wanted to use it to uplift and champion talent where I found it. Kinetika Bloco are not only sweet souls but a hardworking and gifted bunch. I wanted to have them by my side at this career defining milestone and show them that the sky is the limit!” – Arlo Parks

The sky is indeed the limit – 21 years and counting!!
