Michel Montecrossa and his band the Chosen Few this year bring to the Spirit of Woodstock Festival in Mirapuri the brand new songs of their 'Love, Unity & Climate Change Concert Tour 2012'.
Michel Montecrossa, Cyberrocker, Topical-Song Writer and Founder of Mirapuri created more than 2200 songs and 50 symphonic compositions. The extraordinary work of Michel Montecrossa is constantly moving further. Fusion of all song-styles, symphonic music and music movies unite to form his unique Cyber- and Topical-Music.
When Michel Montecrossa is not in the studio working on new productions he is on the road together with his band ‘The Chosen Few’ (Mirakali, Diana Antara, Mirachandra, David Butterfield, Artis Aldschalis) presenting with his live-concerts – forty and more every year – a Cyber-Rock and Topical-Song Vision come true.
Michel Montecrossa and his band are living in Mirapuri-Coiromonte, Italy. Their music is a continually evolving message, a Cyber-Rock and Topical-Song Action dream come true. Every month they perform live at the Music-Hall of the Omnidiet Resort and Business Hotel in Mirapuri as well as at the Michel Montecrossa Rock Vision Diner in Gauting near Munich, Germany. They lead a life of friendship and experience, artistically expressing the impact of life and future possibilities.
Michel Montecrossa and the Chosen Few continuously create new songs, new lyrics, new styles of performance. Every concert is a new Cyber-Rock and Topical Song Journey. It is fascinating to experience them and get the feeling of Cyber- and Topical-Music which is not isolated in an alien world but part of a consciousness-expanding outlook on things and a practical way of life being more than an alternative to present conformity.
Michel Montecrossa started the Spirit of Woodstock Festival which takes place every year in July / August in Mirapuri-Coiromonte in the North-Italian Mountains together with the Mirapuri Rainbow Gathering and Mirapuri’s one and only original Bavarian Oktoberfest in Italy.
During the Festival Michel Montecrossa and The Chosen Few sing and play along with international guest-bands for a happy and enthusiastic audience.

Music for me is life: it is fire, burnin' strong and hot. The dream that touches deep the heart and the energy, that turns you on and makes you happy and feel good. It's great to play futuristic cyberrock and to dive into atmospheres of romantic trance songs. As a singer I express love and the experience of life. Music is for me the key to new ideas, strong feelings and the push to go higher.

One Step Further

Germany
Hardrock from Germany
One Step Further

Die Hardrockformation ONE STEP FURTHER aus Limburg (Hessen/Deutschland) wurde ursprünglich in den späten 1980er Jahren gegründet und zählte seinerzeit rund drei Jahre lang zu den Aushängeschildern der heimischen Musikszene. Kurz nach dem Gewinn des „Da Capo-Bandcontest“ der renommierten Woodland Music Studios im Jahr 1991 trennte sich das Quartett, um sich sage und schreibe 17 Jahre später wieder zusammenzufinden.
Seit 2008 pflegt ONE STEP FURTHER einen sehr individuellen Stil, der straighte Riffs, groovende Rhythmen und eingängige Refrains zu einem stimmigen Gesamtbild vereint, welches durch den Einsatz von variablen Cleanvocals und Growls abgerundet wird. Vor allem aber die Tatsache, dass Elemente aus nahezu allen der inzwischen unzähligen Genres des Rock und Metal einfließen, hebt die Musik aus einer breiten Masse hervor.
Spätestens mit Veröffentlichung der CD-EP „Troublespots“ im Jahr 2010, welche mit überaus positiven Kritiken von Musik-Fachredaktionen und Sendestationen bedacht wurde, hat ONE STEP FURTHER einen Weg eingeschlagen, der die Band zunehmend ins Licht der Öffentlichkeit führte und auf dem es der gestiegenen Erwartungshaltung an die weitere Entwicklung gerecht zu werden gilt.

Bouncin' B. C.

Germany
Street Punk from Germany
Bouncin' B. C.

Bouncin B.C ist eine (Street-)Punkband aus dem Großraum Landshut. Da die Band ihrer niederbayerischen Herkunft gerecht werden will, bezieht sie sich sehr deutlich auf ihre Heimat, die Hallertau, dem größten zusammenhängenden Hopfenanbaugebiet der Welt. Sie steht zu ihren Wurzeln und bezieht sie in den Sound des Streetpunks mit ein, der von einer Prise Rock'n Roll und dem frühen amerikanischen Punkrock begleitet wird. „Wir wollen uns nicht auf den Drei-Akkorde-Punk beschränken!“, ist die Attitüde der Gruppe. Zu den Bands, die „Bouncin B.C.“ bezüglich des Songwritings im Laufe der Jahre stets beeinflusst haben, zählen beispielsweise die Punkrockveteranen Social Distortion und The Ramones, sowie weitere etablierte Bands, wie Born to Lose und Far From Finished.
Das Bestreben liegt dabei darin, die richtige Mischung aus schnellem, tanzbarem Punkrock und eingängigen Melodien an den Zuhörer weiterzugeben. Dabei bildet das Publikum einen wichtigen Bestandteil der Live-Shows.
Auf der Bühne geht es der Band hauptsächlich um Authentizität und darum, dem Publikum das Gefühl zu geben, dass sie ehrlichen, direkten Punkrock spielt. Die Identifikation mit der Szene, sowie der Vorsatz, die Subkultur aufleben zu lassen, verknüpft „Bouncin' B.C. mit ihren musikalischen Wurzeln. Jedes Mitglied der Gruppierung trägt diesen Gedanken weiter und sie bleiben sich trotz steigender Lebenserfahrung treu, was sie auch an ihre Zuhörer weitergeben.
Die Texte handeln hauptsächlich von sozialkritischen Themen, aber auch vom Feiern, vom Spaß haben und von persönlichen Erfahrungen.
Beispiel aus dem Inhalt des Liedes „Sojabarbey“ vom kommenden Debüt-Album: (…new fashion every year, present the bones my dear, size zero BMI, hungry until you die…)
Die Hauptmotivation ist der Spaß und die Liebe zur Musik, das Kennenlernen Gleichgesinnter und das Vermitteln ihrer Message. Die Band spielt nicht zusammen, um damit den Lebensunterhalt der einzelnen zu bestreiten, sondern kreativ zu sein und anderen Personen die Ergebnisse zu präsentieren.

Band Members: Ferd Hamal (Vocals) • Bouncin Ecki (Lead Guitar) • Johnny B. Gugg (Rhythm Guitar) • Stan Bämpfn (Bass) • Dres Hellfucker (Drums)

One-man-acoustic-country-folkpunk since 2009, influenced by Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan and Neil Young as well as by punkrockers like Social Distortion or Flogging Molly. One voice, one acoustic guitar, three or four chords, catchy sing-along-melodies and lyrics from the heart. This is Rock'n'Roll in its most original way.

A Sleepless Mind

Italy
Indie-Folk from Italy
A Sleepless Mind

Una manciata di parole per tratteggiare un intero mondo, intimo e reale, nel quale essere catapultati come spettatori indiscreti, tra linee melodiche alla chitarra che delineano il fluire delle emozioni: questa è l’anima di a sleepless mind.
L’amalgama di emozioni e la vocazione lo-fi sono plasmate dal connubio di due anime dissimili. Accanto al cantautore compare infatti il tocco di Mario Bartilucci, voce e chitarra dei Baton Rouge, band di Saronno attiva in Italia e all’estero nell’universo blues.
L’album di debutto “I Can’t See The Time Of Nothing” è stato presentato nel corso di un breve tour a Edimburgo, lo scorso aprile.

Poetry Fact

Germany
Progressive Rock from Germany
PoetryFact

The band's story begins in 2007 in Leverkusen Poetry Fact, as a couple of 16-17 year old boys decided to make music together and act as Red Hot Chili Peppers cover band. But when they realized that despite or perhaps because of constant change of band members, nothing sensible came about and there is no success hired, Tim decided, Sandro and Thomas to put something unique on their feet. The instruments were distributed quickly and fairly spontaneous. Tim began playing guitar and was determined to singer; Sandro, who played a bit more in his spare time, was put behind the drums and bass Thomas went on to easily.
Poetry Fact had a few teething problems. As it turned out, the songwriting was not easy with little experience, what did the band come quickly to criticism. But instead of being discouraged them experimented Tim, Sandro and Thomas simply continue with various styles of music, they played with tact switch, the songs were longer and caught three se for Progressive interested skirt, then what should ultimately be the style in which The band developed. Otherwise, however, any classification of Poetry Fact is difficult, because the band puts much emphasis on an entirely independent and unique sound have to, which settles from all others. The three guys do not want simply to adjust but above all let their own ideas and their own personal experiences into the music.

PICO – das sind eigene Ska-Funk-Kompositionen. Elemente aus Reggae, Ska, Jazz, Rock, Funk und portugiesischem Fado, versetzt mit afrikanischem Einfluss verschmelzen zu einem wirklich individuellen Stil-Mix. Portugiesischer Sprechgesang wechselt sich ab mit melodischen Passagen und knackigen Bläser-Riffs, funkig-rockigem Crossover, Reggae, Ska und Fado. Durchweg tanzbare Rhythmen, spanische, portugiesische und afrikanische Einflüsse – das ist keine bayerische Band. Die fünfköpfige Münchner Band – alles langjährige Musiker – spielt in dieser Formation seit 2006 zusammen.

Metal from Germany
Skipdown

Im November 2009, haben sich vier Musiker entschlossen, sich aus ihren nahezu 10 Jahre alten Bandgefüge zu befreien, um das nächste Kapitel aufzuschlagen... Ein Jahr schlossen Sie die Pforten zur Außenwelt um sich einzukerkern, Songs zu schreiben und aufzunehmen. Am 11. Dezember 2010 war es dann soweit, ihre erste EP wurde live im WU5 in Dresden vorgestellt. Vor ausverkauftem Haus wurde Skipdown live geboren und vom Publikum begeistert aufgenommen. „Pathetic Fanatic“ wurde das Erstlingswerk kurzerhand betitelt. Am ehesten ist das was sie da machen als Neo-Thrash oder Groove-Metal mit einem gehörigen Schuss Wahnsinn zu beschreiben. Skipdown besteht aus Sille der die Drums bearbeitet, Fred der an den fünf Saiten zupft, Matt der dem Ganzen seine Stimme gibt und die Riff-Gitarre bedient und Mr. Brewer für Shred- und Riff-Gitarre zuständig.

Vortice Di Nulla

Italy
Progressive / Psichedelica / Sperimentale
from Italy
Vortice Di Nulla

I Vortice di Nulla nascono nel 2004 quando Ivano, Luca e Francesco decidono di formare una band di rock strumentale e psichedelico. A loro si unisce Valerio e il gruppo inizia subito a comporre i primi brani, lunghi pezzi melodici che vengono interrotti bruscamente da sfuriate noise. Col passare del tempo il sound della band si fa più ricercato e grazie al secondo demo, "I'm with Tortillas, throwing storse in the water" la band entra a fare parte della scuderia dell'etichetta indipendente milanese Trazeroeuno records. Nel 2008 si unisce ai Vortice di Nulla Matteo come tastierista, mentre nel 2009 le strade della band e di Valerio si separano consensualmente. A questo punto alla batteria arriva Mattia, il suono dei Vortice di Nulla subisce un'ulteriore evoluzione ed i pezzi diventano più aggressivi ed immediati. Nel 2010 la band registra "The roundabouts mania", disco che ottiene ottimi riscontri dalla critica e da riviste specializzate. Sul finire dello stesso anno entra a far parte del gruppo anche Daniele alla chitarra e a synth. Nel 2011 la band ha registrato l'ep "Psychedelic Caballeros" e attualmente è impegnata nella stesura di nuovi brani da registrare nel 2012.

The Sunpilots

Progressive Rock from Germany
The Sunpilots

Born in Australia to a classically trained Sri Lankan mother, Raj Siva-Rajah was a boy caught between two worlds. From the age of 8 he began mastering the classical Carnatic music of the east, while falling in love with the progressive rock sound of the 70’s. In 2006 Raj met lead guitarist Bob Spencer and soon after The Sunpilots were born.
The Sunpilots released their debut album Living Receiver in late 2008 to rave reviews in Europe, Australia and the US including a MusicOz award, an “Indie Album of the Year” and two “Indie Album of the Week” awards from music press. Since then the band has completed 5 high-profile tours, achieved a #1 most added song on Australian radio, music video airplay on Video Hits (VH) and Channel V in 8 countries and has earned a reputation from street press to Rolling Stone as a must-see live act. This success was recognised when The Sunpilots won RadioAustralia’s ‘New Artists 2 Radio’ (NA2R) award and performed at the Australian Radio Awards to a national audience.
Now based in Berlin, The Sunpilots have played over 180 shows and 23 festivals across Europe since September, winning over crowds in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the UK, France, The Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Poland, Hungary, Slovenia, Latvia, Lithuania and more. With performances reviewers have described as “electric” and “stadium-worthy”, the band is quickly becoming a festival favourite.
Online, The Sunpilots are turning heads around the globe. Fans across Europe and North America have been flocking to the band’s websites to connect with their music, leading to one of the largest YouTube and Myspace profiles of any Australian band. The buzz amongst international fans caught the attention of Apple, who have now featured two of the band’s tracks as iTunes ‘Singles of the Week’.
In North America, strong college radio support has led to The Sunpilots winning ‘Best International Artist’ at the Canadian Independent Music Awards and ‘Single of the Year’ at the LA Music Awards. The band was also one of 15 rock finalists in the International Songwriting Competition. Judged by the likes of Tom Waits, Robert Smith (The Cure) and Joe Satriani, the ISC is the most prestigious songwriting competition in the world.

Tequila Funk Experience

Italy
Rock, Folk, Blues from Italy
Tequila Fun Exprience

Inspired by bucolic atmospheres and themes that explore the most intimate feelings, Tequila Funk Experience propose an unpredictable rock held by folk and blues roots, which vocal harmonies and various features can rely on. As a long journey, their guitars adroitly bounce between vigorous and airy sounds while the intersection of dynamics creates bright, blooming and dreamy atmospheres. While going beyond various psychedelic paths, they never miss a choral sense of unity that distinguishes them in paths that sometimes melt and mix with dream. Conceptually, Tequila Funk Experience care about specific topics such as “green revolution” and “zero impact”.

Karenina

Rock, Folk, Blues from Italy
Karenina

I Karenina sono all’esordio, ma in realtà non lo sono: stranezze dovute a un cambiamento di stato, ma non di forma, a una ragione sociale che muta, ma che non altera le componenti fondamentali che danno vita a un progetto in pieno sviluppo da quasi due anni. Triste Colore Rosa è stata la crisalide dalla quale è nata la farfalla Karenina. Ilprocesso, veicolato da un cambio di nome e ufficializzato a ottobre del 2011, è dovuto all’arricchirsi della musica del gruppo di sfumature nuove, in parte distanti dall’universo di “Scomparire in 11 semplici mosse”. Musica che prenderà forma completa nel disco “Il futuro che ricordavo”, in uscita a inizio 2012, anticipato dal singolo e videoclip “Colore”.

Band Members: Francesco Bresciani (Vocals, Guitar) • Francesco Zini (Bass) • Giuseppe Falco (Guitar) • Ottavia Marini (Piano, Vocals) • Enrico Brugali (Drums)
