chuffDRONE

chuffDRONE combines five charismatic musicians, each of them with his or her own approach to Jazz. Five mindful team-players who dive into each other’s musical performance with full commitment. With head and heart they compose controlled outlets for uncontrollable eruptions, they orchestrate silence and transform ecstasy into rhythm. chuffDRONE unites energy with poetry, mischief with perfection. By counting on the power of the collective, borders between composition and improvisation disappear and the different instruments merge into one charged, pulsating sound, whose attraction a listener can hardly resist. For several years now the young quintet chuffDRONE a has been right in the middle of Austria’s experimental jazz-scene and had the opportunity to play at renowned international festivals like Jazzfestival Buenos Aires, 12 Points Festival (Aarhus, Denmark), Jazz in the Ruins (Poland), Jazzfestival Saalfelden, or Kick Jazz at Porgy & Bess (Austria), a.o. In their current line-up you’ll find – besides the founders Judith Schwarz, Lisa Hofmaninger and Judith Ferstl – since 2018 Jul Dillier and Robert Schröck to complete the strong collective.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
