We had the pleasure to perform at the Vienna Sugar Blues Festival 2023 at Sargfabrik. It was a rare experience, since literally everybody in the audience kept dancing thru out most of the evening. That sparked us, the musicians enormously and created exceptional fun and joy for everyone in the ballroom. Also looking forward to contributing next year!

Carla K is a fresh new face on the scene of jazz singers. Her amazing voice immediately surprises even the most experienced music lovers. Despite her youth, Carla performs with unparalleled expression and passion. Embedded within the groove of Jo Leupold and a distinctive band with Alfred Wittmann (sax), Joe Schirl (bass), Martinus Bassus (bass) and Hari Kreuzer (drums) a unique sound unfolds to enthusiastic listeners.
