Kéknyúl Hammond Band - soul/jazz Funk Live Act in Budapest

Kéknyúl Hammond Band Short Info

The music of the band Kéknyúl roots in the soul and funk
music of the 70s, mixed with urban dance music. The sound is defined by two members
basically: Matyas Premecz (keys) and Andy Hefler (vocals).

Matyas Premecz is a well­-known organ player in Hungarian pop culture, with such bands
as The Qualitons or Barabás Lőrinc Eklektric, but his name is always mentioned together
with his trademark Hammond organ, and that’s exactly why Kéknyúl was founded: to be
able to fully exploit the possibilities of the instrument.

Andrew Hefler was born in Los Angeles and has moved to Hungary in 1993. He’s an
outstanding figure in the Hungarian cultural scene being a renowned actor, director and
singer.

But the band and its sound is not complete without the other six members, and their new
album, coming out this December, will be based on this conception. Mark Badics (drums),
Istvan Bata (bass), Andras Jasz (alto saxophone), Attila Bognar (trombone), Csaba
Puskas (trumpet) and Zsolt Csokas (guitar) equally took part in writing the new album and
uniquely among today’s Hungarian bands, all members have vocal parts as well.

The complex music of Kéknyúl (on their new album, Crowded Universe one can also find
rock and psychedelic influences) attracts rockers, alternative teenagers and elderly jazz-
lovers as well. The band is definitely among the best club­ and festival bands of Hungary.
