Together with the Chur concert venues, the city brings three young music groups on stage. In September and October, the bands "Nesta and the Blondes", "AM$" and "The Exploding Trees" will be in the spotlight.
Three bands from Chur in the spotlight
In September and October, three young bands from Chur will be in the spotlight. The grunge-pop band "Nesta and the Blondes" will kick things off. Andrea Corona, Michelle Früh, Benjamin Richner and Lorenzo Corona share a passion for snowboarding and music. They will play at Cuadro22 on Sept. 23. Young artist Lenny Ammann is known on stage as "AM$." He raps in English, French, as well as in dialect and convinces with melodious hooks. On September 24, he will present his music at Loucy Bar & Eventhall. The band "The Exploding Trees" was founded a year ago and consists of musicians from Switzerland, Austria and Germany, which are held together by the Chur-based artist Arnaud Pas. After countless street concerts in Chur, their explosive mix of rock and reggae can now be experienced live on stage at Palazzo Chur on October 15.
Nesta and the Blondes, AM$ and The Exploding Trees now have the opportunity to increase their stage presence and gain visibility. In addition to the opportunity to perform on a Chur concert stage with professional infrastructure, they will be advised by a music industry professional and receive valuable expert feedback.
New funding scheme of the city of Chur
The trigger for the funding scheme was the public discussion of the city's target image "cultural spaces". In the context of this, it was pointed out several times that there was a great lack of performance opportunities, especially for young bands. For this reason, the city council has set up the pilot project "Newcomer Stages & Live Support", a new support scheme for these young artists, so that an appropriate capacity of stage space can be "bought" annually from event organizers in Chur.
