piano

Born in 1969 in St. P├Âlten, Lower Austria. I had 6 years of classical piano lessons, but after a few years I discovered that the Boogie Woogie rhythms of Axel Zwingerberger fascinated me more than Mozart or Beethoven. Still I enrolled into a music university for another year studying classical music. However, I slowly started to get into Blues & Boogie Woogie music more & more. Besides the Boogie Woogie pioneers like Albert Ammons or Pete Johnson, I also liked the band sound of the Mojo Blues Band. My vision was to be a member of such a band playing Chicago Blues & Rhythm & Blues. Still it was very hard to find professional Blues & Boogie Woogie musicians in Lower Austria. However, in 1999 I finally joined the 50's revival Rock n' Roll band, "De Icco & the Jailgang". I also played live concerts with the "Paul Zagler Band", "Manfred Deix & the Good Vibration Band", etc. In 1996 until 2001, I was the piano player & stage partner for the Cabaret star, Alexander Bisenz. By the end of 2002 I joined the Mojo Blues Band and fulfill my vision.....
