The four enthusiastic musicians revive and interpret older pieces in their own, unique style. They refrain, however, from employing any technological means, relying strongly on their traditional musical skills. In their current program '80er Perlen' ('Gems of the 80s'), the band deals with the style of music that shaped their generation. Among others, they perform songs by Madonna, Münchner Freiheit, Cameo, Billy Ocean, or Don Henley, drummer of the Eagles.

The audience will enjoy songs such as 'Wieder Dadada' ('Dadada Again'), 'Dinge Sind' ('Things Are'), or 'Umarm Dich Mal' ('Hug Yourself Once in a While').

Kati Krüger Cabaret with Kati Krüger

Saturday, 06/16/2018, 7:30 pm

In her new cabaret program 'Habt Acht! Das Neue' (roughly: 'Attention/Watch Out! What's New'), Kati takes her audience on a trip through her life as... well... a bad person?!
She confronts humanity's great questions, such as: Is there really no meaning of life or should I just go ahead and join the army? Is human dignity inviolable and if so, why hasn't the Austrian army taken notice yet? No matter, just as long as the uniform fits! What drove her to join a fitness club after being invited to her first class reunion – and why she is no longer welcome there; why you should never let Kati babysit your children, and why her romantic partners keep winding up in the city's hospitals – hear all about this in Kati's new program! It may just be by pure chance if one or the other situation seems somewhat familiar to you; however, that should nevertheless give you pause...
It was during her acting studies in Vienna when Kati Krüger discovered her love of cabaret. She has been working as a solo cabaret artist since 2013 and has even performed her program on the stage of the Quatsch Comedy Club in Berlin. She currently works as a writer for German television where she performs in front of the camera, as well. Kati lives and works in Cologne.

Austropop – according to wikipedia, this term describes a music style which developed in Austria in the mid 1960s. It should be pointed out, however, that austropop is less a specific music genre but merely denotes the common geographic origin of such very diverse genres as rock, hip-hop, and alternative music...
Meidling3 thus considers as austropop the music of the 70s and 80s, the music they grew up with and whose performers influence their work until this very day – a music that hasn't lost its timeless significance even in our times. Wherever Viennese dialect mixes with English lyrics, whenever the accordion encounters the electric guitar, the members of meidling3 feel right at home.
Meidling3 was founded in 2007 – in Meidling, Vienna, of course – by Thomas Hahn (lead vocal & percussion), Chris Cermak (keyboard & backing vocal), and Michi Cermak (guitar & backing vocal), all of whom look back at a long career which started at the end of the 1980s and which saw them performing in diverse ensembles. In 2011, Harald Mandler (guitar & bass) joined the band as a permanent member. Mandler, just as the rest of the founding members, is, of course, a Meidling native!
As early as 2013, meidling3 enthralled the audience of the Favoritener Kultursommer (Cultural Summer of Favoriten). This year, the entire band will be expanded by drums and saxophone.

50 Jahre Summer of Revolution 50 Years of Summer of Revolution

Friday and Saturday, September 07/08/2018, start always 7:30 pm

Our theme-based weekend '50 Years of Summer of Love' was received enthusiastically by the audience. As a continuation of our program of the previous year, we will organize another weekend, this time on the subject '50 Years of Summer of Revolution', dealing with the sometimes dramatic events of 1968.
The year of 1968 was shaped by massive political and social upheaval, such as the Vietnam war, the Prague Spring, or the student uprisings in Germany and France. Based on the broadcast series by music expert Karl Warlischek, we will shed light on the year's historic events and the various ways they took an influence on the European and American music scene.
