Jazz at the Sägewerk Bad Hofgastein


The organizer of the top event is the Sägewerk in Bad Hofgastein, which has been an institution in terms of jazz concerts and small arts for many years.

Sepp Grabmaier converted the former sawmill many years ago into a unique event location. Initially an insider tip, it has been well known for several years as a meeting place for jazz lovers. The Sägewerk offers a colorful program throughout the year - from concerts to cabaret.

ENJ Society feat. Oliver Kent

 

With the ENJ Society of musicians Michael Erian - saxophone, Daniel Nösig - trumpet, Milan Nikolic - bass and Howard Curtis - drums, a highly innovative group brings its own sound to life. In the new compositions, the ENJ Society pulls its musically fine strings from bebop and waltz to swing and presents, among other things, beautifully shaped, intense ballads. The quartet expands into a quintet for Snow Jazz Gastein and brings the Viennese pianist Oliver Kent on board.
