Lives in Vienna: more than 10 years

Vienna might be known as THE city of classical music. For sure it is. However, there is a long tradition of whatever is called contemporaneous music: Jazz, Funk, Soul, Blues, Folk, Klezmer, Ska, R`n Balkan etc. Pointless to list names of the relevant Viennese musicians….

The Porgy and Bess (after the Gershwin’s opera) is mainly a Jazz Club but offers all of above mentioned music styles, and more.

This is a place for high quality music in a small club style atmosphere with food and good beer. Famous global musicians and bands perform here (again, pointless to list names). It often happened to me that an unplanned visit ended in an unforgettable musical experience.
