What we offer

Our goal is to make you and your guests happy. We play private events like weddings and parties and also in clubs and festivals. We have our own sound system for up to 100 guests and lights too if needed. If your event has more guests, we have good connections to professional sound technician for events up to 1000 people. Our advantage is in our flexibility to adapt to different situations. We can rock out and give gas when the time is right, and we also have the awareness, experience and talent to play at lower volumes and more in an acoustic / lounge / style for those times when the band is more of an ambience element and not the main focus, as example when guests want to talk to each other. Our repertoire covers Pop, rock and roll, Blues, Folk, Funk and original music. You can choose to book the band in modules: Solo one man band or solo acoustic, duo, trio or 4 piece band. I have several original songs which are played on Radio Swisspop and international radio. We can play a mix or originals and cover songs from other artists. Just tell us your wishes.
