Another day at the office?! Maybe for these guys! I went to see a jazz gig… I got a lot more than I bargained for!

Often, the audience’s clapping and whooping become another instrument in the band. With such levels of audience interaction, it’s no wonder the musicians got the giggles too! Great fun had by all!
At first glance, Andreas Schaerer gives us the impression that he’s any ordinary sexy jazz singer but underneath this cool Swiss exterior, lays a trombone, Jimi Hendrix’s guitar, a conductor and comedian!

When a band is this tight, they can afford to let rip. Their energy and passion were abundant.
