Smash It Up
SMASH IT UP is an intoxicating & exciting mix up adventure show of your favourite songs. From fun funk covers of iconic tunes, to re-creating mashups with a sensational live band and horn section, you will hear songs in ways you never expected!
SMASH IT UP specialises in re-creating mashups, a technique which involves the blending of two or more pre-recorded songs, where the vocal track of one song is overlayed seamlessly over the instrumental track of another song.
There are thousands of mashups that have been created by DJ’s and music producers, but this show takes the mashup to another level – a Smash Up!
Using well known iconic songs that people know and love from artists including Gloria Gaynor, Donna Summer, Adele, Britney Spears, and The Eurythmics, and putting them together with more recent artists such a Billie Eilish, Tones & I, Jonas Brothers, Dua Lipa and Harry Styles, these songs have been re-created beyond the typical ‘mashup’.
SMASH IT UP is an incredible live performance experience that highlights the level of musicianship and creativity that these electrifying performers can bring.
From funk covers to re-created mashups, SMASH IT UP can perform as a 5-piece band and scaled up to a 14-piece big band (including horn section), making it the show for all venues, festivals and corporate events.
Created by Kara Ciezki in 2022.
