Too Hot to Handel

On April 22, 2010, squib-box presented Too Hot To Handel: a concert of Handel & Hendrix baroque’n’roll plunderphonia.

The performance took place at The Handel House Museum, London, which is located on the upper floors of 25 and 23 Brook Street. 25 Brook Street was the residence of George Frideric Handel between 1723 and 1759. 23 Brook Street which now serves as an exhibition and events space and where the concert took place was the home to rock legend Jimi Hendrix 1968-1969.

squib-box celebrated the genius of these two musical legends, simultaneously. The performance included baroque and rock n’ roll mash-ups, wigs, fugal improvisation, guitar virtuosity, period costumes, laptop wizardry and psychedelic arias.

Adam de la Cour – voice/guitar
Alexander Hawkins – harpsichord
Federico Reuben – live electronics
Javier Carmona – drums
Dominic Lash – double bass
Steve Potter – oration/traffic control
