• AKAGA (BUL)

AKAGA MUSIC velja za eno najpopularnejših zasedb Bolgarije, njeni člani pa so priznani kot utemeljitelji sodobnega bolgarskega zvoka.

Glasba Akage je edinstvena zmes fusion-jazza, funka, folka, reggaeja, soula in celo hip-hopa. So prva bolgarska pop skupina, ki je v svoj zvok vključila vodilno trobilsko sekcijo.

Skupino so leta 1992 ustanovili študenti na Državni akademiji za glasbo. Odtlej so izdali že sedem albumov, zadnji je izšel v lanskem letu. V prvih letih ustvarjanja je Akaga koncertirala predvsem v domači Bolgariji, ob tem so izdali tudi svoje prve tri albume, njihova priljubljenost pa je vseskozi močno naraščala. Med leti 1994 in 1998 je bila Akaga tudi uradna zasedba Bolgarske radiotelevizije.

Danes je Akaga priznana zasedba, ki nastopa kot osrednje ime na prestižnih jazz festivalih kot so Bansko, Apolonia, Nishville, Klaipeda, Montreux ipd.

• HAPPY OL' McWEASEL

Noro zažigalen festivalski zaključek na Večerovem odru z Weasli!

Happy Ol' McWeasel je sedemčlanska folk punk rock skupina, nastala leta 2007, ki z mešanico punk rocka in folk glasbe že več kot 10 let razvnema tako domače kot tuje odre. Udaren vokal, močna ritem sekcija ter prefinjenost in navihanost violine, banja in harmonike je zagotovo kombinacija, ki premakne slehernega skeptika.

Zasedba je poznana po edinstvenih in energičnih koncertih v živo, na katerih ne manjka odrskih skokov in akrobacij, niti množičnega nazdravljanja s publiko. Z gotovostjo lahko rečemo, da skupina trenutno velja za eno najbolj vročih rock skupin v Sloveniji, o čemer pričajo številni koncerti doma in v tujini.

Happy Ol' McWeasel so prodrli tudi na japonski trg in pod okriljem glasbene trgovinske hiše The Tower Records ter založbe Uncle Owen Records Utd izdali dva albuma - leta 2012 No Offence, leta 2015 pa Heard Ya Say!, kaj kmalu pa fantje napovedujejo tudi nov album.

Uspehov pa ne nizajo le na odrih temveč tudi v svetu filma. Leta 2014 je hollywoodski studio Century Fox za CBS-ovo TV serijo The Crazy Ones, v kateri glavni vlogi odigrata Robin Williams in Sarah Michelle Gellar, kot soundtrack uporabil prav njihovo priredbo tradicionalne irske pesmi Danny Boy.

• HAPPY OL' McWEASEL

Awesome feet-stomping, stage-burning, final festival day gig at Večer stage with the “Weasels”!

Happy Ol' McWeasel are a seven-man folk-punk-rock band formed in 2007, who have been setting both national and international stages on fire for more than 10 years with their mixture of punk-rock and folk music. Get-in-your-face vocals, a thumping rhythm section and the sophisticated, yet kinky interplay of the viola, banjo and accordion is surely a combination that will have even the most ardent sceptics stomping their feet.

The band are known for their unique and high-energy live gigs filled with stage dives and acrobatic manoeuvres, with venue-wide cheers and drinks thrown in for good measure. It is safe to say that the Weasels are one of the hottest Slovenian rock bands at the moment, as shown by their numerous concerts in Slovenia and beyond.

Happy Ol' McWeasel are big even in Japan, where they released two albums under the record and trade label The Tower Records and the record label Uncle Owen Records, respectively – the album No Offence saw the light of day in 2012, followed by Heard Ya Say! in 2015. According to the lads, a new record is already in the works.

Live gigs are not their only talent it seems. In 2014, the Hollywood studio Century Fox used their rendition of the Irish classic Danny Boy on the soundtrack for CBS’s TV series The Crazy Ones, starring Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar.
