Walberlafest: the main thing is that the beer tastes good

Walberlafest: the main thing is that the beer tastes good

Eager helpers had created a small tent city on the home mountain of kirchehrenbach, the walberla, almost overnight. Afterwards the helpers could only turn their thumbs and wait for the guests to appear at the most beautiful mountain festival of the franks. With the arrival of the kirchehrenbacher heimatfreunde and their maypole many spectators gathered indeed. After the "heimatfreunde" and the supporting "kerwasburschen" had put the tree upright, their children's dance group, the "ehrabocher staudla", entertained the visitors with french dances.

Gebhardt hits the barrel
The walberlafest was opened afterwards. Accompanied by the sounds of the kirchehrenbach music club, mayor anja gebhardt (SPD) buried the visitors. It was then up to gebhardt to tap the first beer barrel. They managed to do that with just a few strikes.

The mayor and her councillors were then invited to the concordia cycling club's marquee for an evening of official business. In the meantime, the spectators and visitors of the opening spectacle dispersed to the various tapping points and enjoyed the beer and bread.

Line dance party in weidhausen

line dance party in weidhausen

The parquet floor shook under the cowboy boots, stars and stripes hung on the walls and cowboy hat wearing people danced in the golden oak horn. What was going on? The dance group devils in line had invited to their first line-dance party and many groups had followed the call. Normally the devils meet in the inn hofmann in mittelwasungen, but the hall there was too small.

Flu viruses were ignored, masses of snow were shoveled aside and many kilometers were covered. Dance jerks from far away amberg, rudolstadt, roslau, kastl and the nearby "sockental" (gestungshausen) besieged all parking lots around the inn goldenes eichhorn in weidhausen.
The rustic decorated hall filled up quickly and on the dance floor there were about 160 line-dancers, when at 8 pm the "electric slide" started sound.

In perfect lines was shuffled, with much euphoria stomped and kicked full of verve. For all those who do not know "line dancing" here is the translation: people danced in lines, stomped on the floor with euphoria and kicked the air full of verve.

Travis return with a new album

Travis return with a new album

Travis is one of the few successful bands that have been releasing records for a long time, but have never delivered a really bad record. This is also the case here: the four musicians, active since 1990 and from 1997 with their first work "good feeling" on the way, let the time it takes for an album to develop to the full satisfaction of all the musicians.

The fact that you waited five years, became a father, live in liverpool, berlin, lancaster or commute between glasgow and new york, doesn't detract from the matter at hand. They take the space to be able – away from the tour business – to gain life experience as individuals again, which can be reported on as a band. The moment they come together, the old magic is back and travis do what they do best: write finely chiseled songs with ingratiating melodies on an acoustic basis.

They come from rock, but let it go from the first song "mother" approached in a leisurely manner. They are quiet numbers, now and then enriched with keyboards, which draw a clear picture of where they themselves stand. This album features compositions by bassist dougie payne and guitarist andy dunlop, who contributed equally to the eleven songs along with sanger fran healy. There is no change in song structure, on the contrary, additional aspects become noticeable, which the former sole writer fran healy probably would not have thought of.

Jazz-fruhschoppen in herzogenaurach

Jazz-Fruhschoppen in herzogenaurach

The courtyard was once again packed with people for the jazz fruehschoppen by thomas fink and friends, hosted by the volkshochschule's "kultur grenzenlos" working group had invited.
Thomas fink surprises and delights again and again with the already legendary jazz-fruhschoppen and with top-class musicians. The jazz-fruhschoppen has long been a cult event in herzogenaurach.
The word "friends is to be taken literally, the five musicians seem to understand each other blindly, a wink of the eye or a "just start" is enough, by thomas fink. But fink was "keyboardless" for six days, as he stated at the beginning, because he was in hospital. "But I'm fine again, you'll hear it", the jazz pianist prepared the guests for a high-carat program.

A bob and a clap
During the music, fritz mensching also really bleeds, because he is not only an excellent musician, but he really rubs the audience along and the people bob and clap. Max kienastl, with an almost inexhaustible repertoire, is a perfect match for this. The music of the likeable and former musician of the bamberger symphoniker spans from jazz to swing hits to opera and classical music.
The "general manfred hartlieb's temperament is hard to see. Connoisseurs say he is a "walking encyclopedia of harmony, a stylist of the first rank and one of the constants in the french scene. Thomas fink and manfred hartlieb have known each other since their youth, and hartlieb already presented himself as "the general" before and has remained so to this day.

Without a stack of notes
The drummer once met thomas fink by chance and is said to have claimed that he plays the drums better than fink. He proved it and apparently it really was, because since then he has also been one of the friends.
Thomas fink has been inextricably linked with the french jazz scene since the 1960s. His fans speak of the "french oscar peterson" with his powerful swinging jazz piano.
Already after a few beats the musicians manage to make contact with the audience and do not let go until the end of the show. But not only his musicians are his "friends". "You are all friends, fink shouted to visitors in the courtyard of the bakery lang. And among friends there is also no fixed program and no pile of notes. What is played is what pleases and sparks, because thomas fink knows what the audience wants to hear.

Sampling ruling: eugh sets narrow limits for sound copiers

Sampling ruling: eugh sets narrow limits for sound copiers

Bang-dange-dang-dang: for 20 years, electro music pioneers from the dusseldorf group kraftwerk have been arguing with pop music producer moses pelham over this two-second sound snippet.

Now the european court of justice has dealt with the matter and set narrow limits to the copying of music sequences, the so-called sampling. Even the use of very short snippets of music from third-party sound carriers requires consent, the court of justice ruled in luxembourg on monday.

However, the judges allowed one exception: the use of a sequence in a different and unrecognizable form is not a quotation of the original work. Thus the rights of the owners of the original work were not violated either. This could apply to the case, but now the federal court of justice has to decide this.

“There is poverty in the country”

In times when it is often said that the "gap between rich and poor is growing wider and wider", we need to be aware of this, social associations and clubs are on the rise. This is also stated by the local association lautertal of the social association of germany (sovd). Chairwoman barbara holzel reported at the general meeting that the local association had 14 new members, bringing the total number of members to 297. This is not entirely out of the blue. The local association attaches great importance to the care of its members, as could be seen from holzel’s report.
District chairman josef haas focused his remarks on the subject of poverty. He referred to "those who loudly believe that there is no poverty in the federal republic", as a "ruthless fool". He took a hard line with the politicians, who in his opinion are doing nothing to effectively counteract poverty in germany. "No one can get away with phrases and cheap words", haas summed up his disenchantment with politics in a nutshell.
The new elections were marked by continuity. Barbara holzel was re-elected chairwoman of the association.
In his opening remarks, lautertal mayor sebastian straubel (CSU) emphasized that it was the task of the district council to address social issues. For this reason, he said, the elections to the district council should not be overshadowed by the state parliamentary elections. He attested to the local association’s focus on people and their concerns. The general meeting was rounded off by the presentation of margrit hollenz, who spoke on the topic "music is medicine" spoke.

To the 13. Time live-earth-festival for a better life

The live-earth-festival for a better life takes place for the 13th time this year. Time on saturday, 29. June, from 4 p.M. Until after midnight.

If you want to experience a lot of great people, great ideas and great music, the festival in litzendorf is the right place for you, the organizers report. Because this is the goal that the preparation team around georg lunz sets for itself every year. Again this year there will be activities for children on the sports field in naisa starting at 2 pm in the form of a bouncy castle, box-climbing, non-alcoholic drinks and many information booths (bund naturschutz, gaia protection, greenpeace, sea shepherd and an action group of the franz-ludwig-gymnasium).

The team of the festival for a better life has set itself the goal not only to create a pleasant evening, but also to make a difference – towards a better world. This is appealing to more and more people, especially since the music at the live-earth-festival is also worth seeing this year. The band "bambuda from bamberg opens the festival with a world music fusion formation around the syrian-kurdish sanger and saz player ferat wali. The group moves between traditional kurdish songs, oriental pop, rock, funk or jazz-rock – absolutely worth listening to. The choir of the middle school in litzendorf also gives a taste of its abilities. Holy panda" has devoted itself entirely to rock’n’roll in the style of the 70s dedicated to perform the music of greats like bon jovi and iron maiden. Familiar soundscapes stand in the night with a touch of melancholy – that’s what "slam elefant" stands for, when they stomp through the alleys of the city. "Slam elephant" animates to dance and simply rubs along.

He himself has also made music before. "I used to play the accordion myself, but that was 50 years ago."When the band approached him and asked for his help, he had already had an operation. "I said i was going to lose weight because i’ve had an operation. Then they said, we’ll do it quickly so that you can still get on there as a fat pug."
