Parties

Let's be lazy at night!

The Lazy Blues parties will be just as lazy and relaxed as the event name suggests. No big fuss, just lots of love for the blues.#
All parties will be at Tanzstudio Medina, Kleemannstraße 6, Stuttgart-Bad Cannstatt
We will have live music on all three nights and the best DJ's-tunes between the live sessions.
Heads up! There will be no party passes! So it’s all or nothing. :)

We will provide you with tap water and coffee. Please feel free to bring your favorite drinks and some snacks, not only during classes but also at the parties!

Several dancers have severe nut allergies. Please leave all nuts and peanuts at home, so we do not have to take anyone to the hospital!

 

Bands

Friday party with Hart & Handel

Hart & Handel are famous for bringing back to life blues as it was played decades ago in the bars and pubs of the American South. With their smokey, grounded, and passionate tunes, this Stuttgart gem regularly draws the blues-loving crowd to the local jazz clubs.

Saturday party with Rufus

Rufus is one of BluesKitchen Stuttgart's favorites. His voice perfectly teams up with his old guitar and his steel guitar slide to play rough delta blues, ragtime-inspired urban blues, and folk songs by Skip James, Son House, Leadbelly, Charlie Patton, Reverend Gary Davis, and many more.

Sunday party with Marie-Louise

Music as beautiful as the sound of her name: Marie Louise is a Stuttgart local. Her German and English songs are full of poetry and inspired by elements of soul, folk pop and jazz. She was awarded with the Songwriter Award of the Pop Academy Baden-Württemberg and has released two highly acclaimed albums. With her powerful and warm voice and her ukulele or guitar, Marie Louise conjures up images and inspires the audience with stories and emotions.

Our DJs

DJ Tracy

has already been part of Octoblues(at)BluesKitchen. Tracy practically eats, sleeps and breathes blues. As a DJ her mission is simple: to bring the party wherever she goes and have you up and dancing with a big smile on your face. With a music collection that’s as wide as it is deep, she’ll always have a surprise for you. Tracy’s love for blues shines through in every set and her style is unmistakeable. (If it reaches deep into your soul, she’ll play it.)

DJ "Grandpa Slowhand"

from Kiel on the Baltic Sea has a penchant for blues music for a very long time now, and especially for the very slow blues. After initially only local occasions he has gained international experienceand and played among others at the Prague Blues Exchange, at the Ljubljana Blues Exchange, at the Valentines Blues in Warsaw, at the Bear Blues Exchange in Berlin, at the Hummingbird Blues Exchange in Krakow and at the Vienna Sugar Blues. He very much loves to see you dancing and dreaming to his music.

Local DJs Maria & André

will play BluesKitchen's favorite lazy songs.
