The GoGo Symphony is inviting audience members to be part of its official music video and live recording October 27 in Washington DC. GoGo celebrities Juju, Mighty Moe, and Stinky Dink will be playing with them; and Sugar Bear will be performing with another surprise celebrity gogo band, whose identity will be revealed mid October. Comedian Chris Thomas will be hosting the event as well as performing a stand up comedy act.
The critically acclaimed GoGo Symphony mixes a classical orchestra over Washington DC’s
iconic gogo beats, creating symphonies people can dance and party to. It has sold out shows in the past with its rowdy atmosphere.
Renowned classical music critic and expert Greg Sandow has called the Go-Go Symphony
"Maverick" in the classical world, since it mixes the music of the DC clubs with the classical
music. He hopes this project will bring new more diverse audiences to classical music.
On the other side, Kato Hammond, author of the top go-go music news website "Take Me Out to the Go-Go," predicts this project will bring go-go music to a wider audience. He feels this project will be a "big deal" in the go-go world.
“The audience members will be key to the success of the video and recording, so we want them to look good and have a great time,” says GoGo Symphony founder, composer, and conductor Liza Figueroa Kravinsky.
The show will launch the GoGo Symphony’s two new singles being released in the fall,
coinciding with local radio play.
The festivities start at 6 pm, Saturday October 27, 2018 at the Union Stage, 740 Water St. SW, Washington DC (the wharf). Come early if you want to be in the video! For tickets, visit
