Lovestruck Balladeers

The Lovestruck Balladeers are the band the mob boss hired to play his daughter’s wedding. Hailing from the American Midwest, Northeast, and Canada, these players, with their crumpled suits and otherworldly faces have collectively committed themselves to bringing old music into the 21st century with all the energy of a train disaster. They might whip out a lost melody from a forgotten mandolin folio, or they might play a Mexican waltz. They might push into a renegade re-arrangement of a swing standard, or get down with a country rag. They are the five scorpion sons of a West Virginia dance hall, a Little Italy tourist attraction, and a Oaxacan birthday party

Mr Lob

I am a Melbourne based Dj and Music Collector and have been active on the Melbourne Dj scene since 1999. My live Dj sets are generally an eclectic blend of Funk, Soul, Jazz, Hip Hop, Reggae, Afrobeat and Latin, while my Dj mixes tend to be more genre specific. The one thing you can say about my style is that whatever I play it has to have a real funky, jazzy and soulful sensibility. Dj Mr Lob

Gottfried Di Franco

Gottfried di Franco stands for a kaleidoscopical, meaningful and euphoric musical language. With their compositions saxophonist Stefan Gottfried and guitars Gabriele di Franco create besides through composed passages as much space as possible for creativity, spontaneous joy of playing and improvisation and hold up these immanent values in jazz far from shallow instrumental virtuosity. Stylistically, they meander subtly between their idols Joe Zawinul, Wayne Shorter and Lee Konitz, an admiring fascination for impressionistic music and their naive curiosity for free improvised music. Gottfried and di Franco combine their musical ideas, their visions as well as their stories which are being told out of the perspective of two young aspiring musicians who perceive the world with wide-opened eyes. Since they got to know each other musically in Vienna more than three years ago
