Andreas Gabalier, der neue Star bei "Madame Tussauds" Wien - Austria

by Diatonic News
Andreas Gabalier Madame TussaudsAndreas Gabalier ist bei Madame Tussauds Wien verewigt Seit Monaten wünschten sich die Fans eine Wachsfigur von ihm, und am 5.10.2010 war es endlich soweit: Andreas Gabalier war zu Gast bei Madame Tussauds Wien und enthüllte seinen Zwilling höchstpersönlich.

Er ist ab sofort im Musikraum des Wachsfigurenkabinetts in einem interaktiven Setting zu bestaunen.

Der Steirer, der 2018 bereits wieder auf große Hallentournee geht, ließ es sich nicht nehmen, trotz stressigen Terminplanes persönlich im Wiener Prater vorbeizuschauen. Vom Ergebnis zeigt er sich begeistert: „Es ist ein sehr eigenartiges Gefühl, neben sich selbst zu stehen und cool, mit 32 Jahren einen weiteren Bruder zu haben“.

Gabalier wurde bereits im Februar zu einem dreistündigen Sitting in Graz eingeladen. Knapp 250 Messungen und 180 Fotos wurden aus jedem Winkel aufgenommen, um die Wachsfigur so realistisch wie möglich darzustellen. Das zweite Sitting im Mai, diesmal in London, half, präzise Feinarbeiten des bereits bestehenden Tonkopfes mit dem Original abzugleichen. „Es ist erstaunlich, dass alles noch immer so Old-School vermessen wird“, so Gabalier über den langwierigen Entstehungsprozess.

Zu sehen ist die 200.000 € teure Wachsfigur in einem Original Gabalier-Trachtenoutfit, seine Harmonika wurde von der Firma Strasser zur Verfügung gestellt. Auch die Pose wurde von ihm selbst ausgewählt. Sie zeigt ihn lässig mit einem Bein auf der Harmonika stehend. Das Setting wurde aufwendig gestaltet, um die Besucher mit interaktiven Highlights zu überraschen: schnaufende Hirschköpfe mit leuchtend roten Augen, versteckte Videobotschaften und eine Harmonika machen das Erlebnis perfekt.

„Es ist uns eine Ehre, solch einen österreichischen Superstar mit zahlreichen Rekorden in unserer Wachs-Familie begrüßen zu dürfen“, so Arabella Kruschinski, Geschäftsführerin von Madame Tussauds Wien.

Ein weiterer Meilenstein seiner Karriere wurde erreicht. Andreas Gabalier ab 6. Oktober: neu und nur bei Madame Tussauds Wien - ready to Volks Rock’n’Roll.

Geno Delafose (born February 6, 1971 in Eunice, Louisiana) is a zydeco accordionist and singer. He is one of the younger generations of the genre who has created the sound known as the nouveau zydeco. His sound is deeply rooted in traditional Creole music with strong influences from Cajun music and also country and western. His father is the famous zydeco accordion player John Delafose.

Delafose was born and raised in Eunice, Louisiana. At the age of eight, he joined his father’s band, the Eunice Playboys as a rubboard player and continued to play with the band until his father’s death in 1994. He also appeared on the several of the bands recordings. He switched to the accordion in the early 1990s and started to play as an opening act for his father.

In 1994, he debuted with album French Rockin’ Boogie on Rounder Records. The name of this album also became the name of his band with whom he still plays with today. He released two more albums from the label, before signing with Time Square label to release Everybody’s Dancin’ in 2003. He has also appeared on the compilation album Creole Bred: A Tribute to Creole & Zydeco released in 2004 on Vanguard Records.

He has been nominated for a Grammy Award in the “Best Zydeco Or Cajun Music Album” category for his Le Cowboy Creole album (2007).He lives in Duralde, Louisiana near Eunice where he operates his Double D Ranch raising cattle and horses. He also holds fan appreciation parties annually.

This Bunch Of Stranded Canadians Having A Singalong Is Just The Cutest

by Diatonic News
Excerpts from www.pedestrian.tv report:
written by Sam George-Allen

This bunch of cheery Canucks who found themselves stranded at an airport thanks to a delayed flight. Did they moan and passive-aggressively include the airline’s Twitter handle in their disgruntled tweets? Of course not; they’re Canadian.

Instead, when the charmingly-named Sheldon Thornhill found himself stuck in Toronto after his WestJet flight to St John’s was delayed for ages, he brought out his accordion. His mate Sean Sullivan whipped out a guitar. And just like that, the two middle-aged musos had the whole gate singing and dancing.

And not to your standard ‘Wonderwall‘ either – the two blokes are well-versed in Canadian traditional folk songs, and that’s what they played.

Sullivan revealed to CBC News that this wasn’t the first time the pair had entertained people stymied in transit. He also said that even the captain of the delayed flight joined in the singalong.

What’s purer than a gaggle of good-natured folk from the land of the maple leaf singing ‘Sweet Forget Me Not‘ to the sound of an accordion and a guitar in an airport terminal? Turns out: nothing. Happy holidays, you bunch of angels.

Gesamtleitung: Servais Haanen
Kursbeschreibung:


Bereits zum neunten Mal geht Servais Haanen 2017 mit seinem internationalen Festival „Akkordeonale“ auf Tournee (www.akkordeonale.de).

Servais Haanen
Zum siebten Mal bietet BURG FÜRSTENECK in Kooperation mit ihm Workshops aus dieser wunderbaren Welt an. Geleitet werden die Workshops auch in diesem Jahr von einem großartigen Team. Jede/r Musiker/in hat einen ganz eigenen Zugang zum Akkordeon. So kommen diverse Instrumententypen der Akkordeon-Familie und unterschiedlichste musikalische Einflüsse zum Einsatz. Wer die Vielfalt der Akkordeonmusik nicht nur hören, sondern selbst spielen möchte, sollte sich diese Gelegenheit nicht entgehen lassen!

Bitte geben Sie bei der Anmeldung Ihren Workshopwunsch sowie Ihre Zweitwahl an, falls Ihre erste Wahl belegt ist. Die gleichzeitige Belegung von zwei Workshops ist nicht möglich.
•Erfinder, Organisator und musikalischer Leiter der Konzertreihe "Akkordeonale".
•Ausnahmeakkordeonist, musikalischer Querdenker, Meister feiner Klänge - mit dem diatonischen Akkordeon hat Servais sich als einfühlsamer Musiker und Komponist profiliert, der es versteht, die musikalische Idee auf den Kern der Aussage zuzuspitzen.
•Kennzeichnend für seine sensiblen und poetischen Kompositionen sind minimalistisch-respektive Strukturen und magnetisch-mitziehende Melodien ohne jede Kitsch-Attitüde.
•Er lässt sein Akkordeon in Sphären vordringen, in denen es bisher nichts zu suchen hatte...
•Eine von Servais liebsten Beschäftigungen ist seine vielfältige Ensemblearbeit mit außergewöhnlicher bis unmöglicher Besetzung.
•Seit 1988 leitet er international Ensembleworkshops für alle Altersstufen, Stile, Niveaus und Instrumente.

A Cajun Christmas w/ Steve Riley & The Mamou Playboys - USA

by Diatonic News
Steve Riley And The Mamou Playboys
When: 15-Dec-2017 - 8 p.m. - 10 p.m.
Where: Performance Center

Cajun Christmas Shows are happening again this year featuring Steve Riley & The Mamou Playboys with the Huval School of Music & talented artists such as Chris Stafford, Melete Woods Terry& Alena Fields Savoy! Santa will be at every show (two hours prior to showtime) and available for photos with your family! Yes, free photos with Santa!

Advance Tickets - 1st Row, 2nd Row, VIP Tables and other seats available NOW at 337-789-1538. Tickets at Vermillionville in Lafayette, LA range from $10-$35. The shows will benefit The Marine Toys for Tots.



ABOUT THE BAND


Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys began over twenty years ago with a reputation for excellence. Their stunningly clean and cohesive performance of Cajun French music from the backwaters of Southwest Louisiana propelled them into the world music limelight early on. And, by their third release, they'd garnered them a Grammy nomination in the worldwide field of traditional folk music, another in 2004, and then another in 2009.


From the day they started, they have gone from strength to strength. Never before in Cajun music has a comparable wealth of skills been brought to the same table. When all that heart and all that skill focus on the revelry of a hot two-step, then turn on a dime and deliver an a cappella ballad, then play something that sounds like Howlin' Wolf fell in lust with a Creole girl, you've found the most Cajun music you can find in any one spot.

You've found Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys!

JAMIE BERZAS & CAJUN TRADITION



It seems that in these times when Cajun is the ‘in’ thing, it is difficult to sort through all the imitations, fakes and the exploitations of Cajun culture. There is, however, one band–The Cajun Tradition– that was around long before Cajun was popular outside of Acadiana. This band, comprised of five individuals playing down-home Cajun music, has upheld the tradition and excitement of Cajun music throughout its career.


The Cajun Tradition has established a tradition of excellence in the performance of Cajun music as demonstrated through the electric reception given to them wherever they play. The group is exciting and dynamic, fun to watch and easy to dance to. Their roots are in the Cajun culture, and it is this heritage that allows them to create the best of what is both traditional and unique in Cajun music.

Tim Le Net & musiciens // S. Cavez & B. Montanaro - France

by Diatonic News
Double plateau musical : Trad-Jazz - Musique du monde 20:30
Des rives de Vilaine à Gand… histoires d’accordéon

Cette rencontre musicale est l’occasion d’écrire la partition d’une nouvelle histoire instrumentale.
Tout d’abord, Tim Le Net se prend pour un « mécascriptophile » (à vos dictionnaires !) qui s’entoure de deux jazzmen talentueux pour teinter ses compositions musicales d’une nouvelle palette de couleurs. Ses deux dactylographes sont aussi performants sur une Olivetti qu’une Remington !
Quant au duo Cavez/Montanaro, c’est à un voyage entre des vents du Nord et des sons de l’Est qu’il nous convie. Elle est belge, il est franco-hongrois, ils sont compositeurs et vivent dans un univers musical aux multiples influences. Avec leur parfaite complicité et leur naturel presque déconcertant, ils produisent un jeu de velours où les sonorités sont tour à tour mélodieuses ou mélancoliques.
Une soirée où la musique sera sans frontières et libre.

Where: Performance Center
Enjoy live music by Leroy Thomas & the Zydeco RoadRunners. Admission is $10

LEROY THOMAS & THE ZYDECO ROAD RUNNERS

Leroy Thomas was born in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and raised in Elton, Louisiana by a family of Zydeco musicians, including his father, Leo 'The Bull' Thomas, the only Zydeco musician to lead his band from the drums. At the age of eight, Leroy decided to become a drummer like his father, building his set out of five gallon paint buckets and playing it with tree branches for drumsticks and cardboard tubing from Christmas wrapping paper as a microphone. In his early teens, Leroy used his determination, imagination and resourcefulness to purchase and learn to play his first accordion. At the age of 18, he joined his father's band, and for 15 years they toured the world playing music together. In 1998, Leroy decided it was time to form his own band, and Leroy Thomas & the Zydeco Road Runners was born. Today, they favor what Leroy refers to as 'Old School Zydeco,' having performed in over 33 states as well as overseas, and recorded 8 albums.

Terry & the Zydeco Bad Boys in concert - USA

by Diatonic News
Terry & the Zydeco Bad BoysWhen: 10-Dec-2017 - 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Where: Performance Center

Come dance the afternoon away at Vermilionville's Performance Center with Terry & the Zydeco Bad Boys.

TERRY & THE ZYDECO BAD BOYS

Terry Domingue Accordion and vocals- Since the age of four Terry would stand at the foot of any stage mesmerized by the band playing at the local trail rides he would attend with his father. At age eight, this self-taught accordion player got his first accordion and has been playing since. Growing up around his grandparents Terry had no choice but to learn Creole French. To keep tradition alive he continues to sing many traditional zydeco songs in French as well as writing many new ones of his own.

Chris P. Ardoin Bass and background vocals- Born into a family of zydeco legends such as Amedee and Bois-Sec Ardoin this gifted musician has never picked up an instrument that he cannot play. If you're brave enough to challenge him to Name that Tune, you will quickly learn that he is a walking encyclopedia of Zydeco music and musicians. When he is not entertaining you on stage he is sure to have you in stitches laughing at his impersonations of zydeco legends.

Chuck Bush Bass/Guitar and Background vocals- Chuck has been playing bass and guitar for quite some time. He's better known as playing his unique style with the 'Cornbread' man himself, the late great Beau Jocque. He's also played bass with traditional-playing accordionist Andre' Thierry. With his funky bass lines and singing during Terry's short intermissions you are sure to find yourself having a great time.

Kendrick Domingue Scrubboard and background vocals- Don't let one of the newest bad boy fool you. While he may be new to the band, he is a true cowboy with strong Zydeco roots. After riding and roping all day it is not unusual to find his horse and best friend, Cotton-Tail, in her trailer outside wherever the Bad Boys happen to be playing. Whether he is in cowboy boots or his Sunday best, his quick arms that provide that choppy old zydeco rhythm & his big smile are sure to charm you.

Lil Terry Arceneaux, Drummer- As the newest member of the band, he has brought energy and rhythm of an experienced drummer and true entertainer. Never at a loss for rhythms or words, he will have you stomping your feet and begging for more.

Für weihnachtliche Klänge bei der Liabsten Weihnachtsweis am 24. Dezember im ORF Landesstudio Tirol sorgen heuer „RET Chamber Brass“, „Die Saitenhupfer“, „Oberländer 3Xang“ sowie „Jung und frisch“.

Jung und frisch

Trotz ihres jugendlichen Alters sind diese drei hübschen Musikantinnen aus dem Ötztal bereits „Mei liabste Weis“- erprobt! Sie erfüllten schon zweimal - 2009 und 2011- Musikwünsche bei dieser Live-Fernsehsendung. Auch der Auftritt mit adventlichen Stücken bei der „Weihnachtsweis“ ist für Katharina Kuen (Harmonika), Anna Rausch (Violine), sowie Maria Schnegg (Harfe) keine Premiere.
