The City Blues Connection & The Rhythm & Blues Big Band with their unique show & theater production Anna Liza
It is a very special pleasure for us to be able to present something very special with "Anna Liza"! Together with musicians, some of whom have been working together for many years and others, City Blues Connection's "Anna Liza" show features a blues production that is unusual in many ways: from country blues Dobro, blues harp and double bass over Blues in the style of New Orleans Blues of the 1920s with traditional solo trumpet and solo clarinet, over raw Chicago blues with electric slide guitar, blues with soul influences and rich brass sets to the "brute" Blues Rock offers the entertaining show an unprecedented versatility that will captivate and surprise the audience.
Modern "electric blues" alternate with traditional songs played exclusively on acoustic instruments. At the same time, songs with sparse instrumentation as well as titles with "Full Blown" -Big Band Sound offer particularly varied listening experiences.
Last but not least, the band also offers a lot of vocals with as many as five lead singers:
From the wonderful, from the softest soul-sound to the "rock-tube" all covering voices of Andrea "Anschi" Graf, Claudia Chaloupka and Livia Winder up to the raw blues shouts of Norbert Egger and Uwe Seemann.
Here you will find exceptionally versatile blues!
The production ranges from autobiographical compositions to blues classics ("How Long" in the Medley, "Fishing Blues" and "Sunday Kind Of Love").
The lyrics range from classic blues lyrics to - how could this be different in the times of a Donald Trump - to the politically committed blues.
