The group Nové struny („The New Strings“) has been active since the end of 2013 and following the initial swing and tramping air of their repertoire, the band evolved their original musical style that is represented by their own works. In our music, a listener may sometimes detect traces of totally different genres that reflect the various musical tastes of the group members and thus our music becomes a kind of unique.
The project OSVOBOZENÉ DUŠE („Liberated Souls“) is focused on the Czech music from the period of 1900 - 1950. There are two shows: The first revives the works of componist Jaroslav Ježek, and lyricists Jiří Voskovec and Jan Werich from the era of Osvobozené divadlo („Liberated Theatre“) and the other interpretes also the movie scores of the first Czechoslovak Republic. Our repertoire consists of the hits that are known through all the generations and that we introduce with our own words on stage. The programme recalls these three outstanding personalities within the context of their era, telling their life stories. It can stand not only as a musical gig itself but also as an educational concert. Our interpretation provides a genuine chambre line-up with piano, vocals and melodic instrument. Both shows may represent two independent programmes as well as a coherent whole.
The band VorazBand is a guarantee of good music and fun for all ages. It is made up of experienced musicians and plays mostly world blues classics. The band plays blues with energy that makes the audience dance, with drums, bass guitar, guitar, keyboards, trumpet, saxophone, trombone and vocals. The blues provided the direct basis for jazz, ragtime, rock and roll, rock and roll and other styles of Western European popular music, influenced many classical composers and was an indirect basis for pop music. The progressions of blues chords and notes are widely used in most popular styles of 20th-century American music.
Together with the poet and lyricist Aleš Misař, we have been cooperating since 2004, when I played in a band with his brother Adam. Aleš wrote lyrics for couple of our songs. We both liked the colaboration and thus have made up some projects together. In summer of 2009, they recorded a musical poem Titan. We created a theatrical-poetic-musical group Vějíř („The Fan“) and performed in a few art cafés with its programme. In 2019 the children´s songbook 12 months have been published. This year 2020, the project of theatrical-musical poem 671: Vendula Vogel should be accomplished the performance of which is to be recorded on CD.
