After their highly acclaimed double album "Gris Gris" viennese groove-machine Shake Stew will release their first ever live-album (A)live! on September 18, 2020.

"We present this album at a most challenging point in time, when we are all feeling the loss of social interaction in many aspects of life.
We are deeply convinced that everything we create and play is meant to exist in relation with the presence of other people, who influence the direction the music takes. The spirit behind this album is to emphasize the existential need for our music to be performed live, and the fact that it can only live and thrive as a collective phenomenon in an organic exchange with the audience. The emotions and sounds created in these moments are never private. Each and every person in the audience contributes to the process, in a constant interaction with the musicians. Therefore, we cannot simply execute our music on stage; we strive, with the help of everyone present, to bring it to life. Time and time again. This is why we play."

Shake Stew Vienna, Austria

Austrian band Shake Stew has become something of a phenomenon. With their premiere at Jazzfestival Saalfelden 2016 and their debut “The Golden Fang” they seemingly exploded into the scene out of nowhere. Since then their high energy mixture of hypnotic afrobeat and jazz grooves has made them enormously successful not only on home turf but across Europe. Their 6th album LILA is out in October 2023! ... more
