It was like a penalty kick. Overnight, we were overcome by the desire to expand the program by a late-night show for the most persistent members of the audience and to finally integrate the notorious Marenzikeller into our jazz festival. And almost at the same time, one of Austria’s most iconic live bands reunited after ten years.
Hence, it immediately suggested itself to knock on Café Drechsler’s door and order the unparalleled melange of jazz, funk, soul, trip hop, breakbeat, drum’n’bass, and an ounce of minimal. Without sugar, but unplugged and with an energy and joy taken in playing which has been unmatched in acoustic club music. More compact, stronger, more concrete, and even more to the point than ever.
The three cunning swashbucklers of Café Drechsler also bring with them their new CD with the auspicious title And Now … Boogie! (Universal Music). Intensive and “one big rhythm thing” (Uli Drechsler on Café Drechsler).
But let’s leave it to drummer Alex Deutsch to explain this band’s charisma: “We are one of the few bands that do not need a rehearsal room, for we never rehearse.” Thus, everything is live.
And as you may have always wondered: the band name Café Drechsler derived from 50 cups of Melange (the Austrian expression for coffee with frothy milk) at Café Drechsler located at Nachmarkt in Vienna. Yes, old Herr Drechsler already knew what he was doing.
