Seit mittlerweile mehr als einem Jahrzehnt auf Europas Bühnen zuhause, sind die BLUESDOCKINGS heute stilistisch wohl am ehesten im Bereich des "Lounge Jazz" anzusiedeln.

Bei ihrer Musik handelt es sich jedenfalls um eine eingängige, funkig-groovige Spielart des Jazz, die ebensogut als unaufdringliche Hintergrundmusik wie auf einer Konzertbühne funktioniert und dazu noch richtig in die Beine geht, ohne dabei den künstlerischen Anspruch zu vernachlässigen. Hier wird gegrooved was das Zeug hält und neben einigen Eigenkompositionen und Klassikern aus dem Genre werden auch Stücke aus der Rock- und Popgeschichte dem unverkennbar eigenen Sound und Stil der Band entsprechend arrangiert.

ENGLISH:
Founded in Austria in late 2005 by drummer David Hippel the Bluesdockings have been on the scene now for over ten years.
After a few years of success in their home country they relocated to London making waves on the British blues scene playing famous venues like the Bull's Head in Barnes and working with many renowned Blues Players of the UK.
A Germany-based period followed before in 2017 they finally got back to their roots geographically as well as musically.

So nowadays they are based in southern Austria between Mozart's birthplace in Salzburg and Mahler's composing-hideaway in Carinthia. As their name suggests they're docking onto the blues by playing music that took and takes this genre a step further. Playing instrumental music somewhere in between Blue Funk, Acid Jazz, Soul, Blues and Surf Music the Bluesdockings like riding the groove to the limit. No matter whether the track is an original or a reimagined song from another genre.

Still this music somehow serves as well as background music as it works on a big stage - always making it hard to keep your feet from moving though.
