Again start of spring ist the ideal time to set the stage for a local scene thriving with creativity: 15 Concerts and Performances – Jazz and Improvised Music, Songwriting, Sound Art, Pop, Indescribable Stuff – that is ZOOM!

JazzWerkstatt Wien is known for quality and diversity – let us say it with Duke Ellington:

„What is music to you? What would you be without music? Music is everything. The scope of music is immense and infinite.”

chuffDRONE on JazzWerkstatt Records!


Welcome to chuffDRONE – CD Presentation will be on Jan 30 at Porgy&Bess. Judith Ferstl and Judith Schwarz at the signing of the contract with JazzWerkstatt Records.

Here is also part of a Jazzwise Magazine Review about Jazz&the City in Salzburg:
“In a programme full of Gerhard Eder’s inspired musical choices, two newcomers stood out as particular revelations. In a relaxed, informal lunchtime set, the four-fifths-female and very young chuffDRONE (Austrian, no clue about the name though) soared and smiled and improvised with absolute confidence and empathy though their own fresh, open, not in the least conventional compositions – a band to watch if ever there was one.”
