Big Band Schladming

The Big Band Schladming was founded in 2004 as a big band of the Ernst Ludwig Uray Music School in the city of Schladming. This ensemble has been under the direction of Helmut Ambroschütz since its foundation. Over the years the band developed and presented itself with regular concerts, most of them in Schladming, but there were always guest appearances (among others at CCW Stainach, in Tamsweg,...).

Highlights were certainly the concerts in the last few years, where a focus was always set (a "Rat Pack" (Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis jr.) Focus, Music of Ray Charles, etc.

The style of the band is very diverse and ranges from big band classics to absolute novelties in this genre.

With hits from Vico Torriani, Caterina Valente and Peter Kraus, the Big Band Schladming takes you into the golden 50s and 60s. With hits like "Tipitipitipso", "Siebenmal in der Woche", "Sag mir was Du denkst", "Bei mir bist du schön", a Udo Jürgens Medley, and much more, we hope it will really heat you up. This is live music of a special kind. The Big Band Schladming is looking forward to a special evening. Keep swinging!

Anton "Su" Fuchs

Joe Cocker interpreter Anton Fuchs, alias "Su", gave his heart to music at a young age. Already with 10 years "Su" shone from the stage.

He founded his first youth band and soon realized that in songs of Joe Cocker, Brian Adams and Bruce Springsteen was more and more fun. Soon he noticed that his smoky voice is just perfect for "Joe Cocker songs" and so he specialized only in his idol. At "Status Quo" in Gutenberg he even amazed Rossi and Parfit.

Cologne did not remain safe from him either and so he took 1st place at the preliminary round of Europe's biggest talent competition and 2nd place at the final. As the first Styrian to participate there, this result was really something to be proud of. He inspired the audience in such a way that at the final eight thousand people suddenly shouted: "We want to see Anton".

"Su" is today one of the best Joe Cocker interpreters and everyone who has heard him is convinced: "Close your eyes and you think Joe Cocker is on stage".
