Beautiful tones of Pop & Blues

Churchpenny Allstars, Ivery

Café Carina / Kramladen Wien, Austria 20230609

While Fiesta Forever rock the Arena, the Gürtel has several possibilities to offer this Friday. The wish to see two different gigs results in a kind of personal Gürtel Nightwalk, as luckily the Café Carina is just a stone’s throw away from Kramladen

There, show number one of this evening is from Alternative Pop Singer-Songwriter Ivery. Since she played at Cafe 7*Stern, she has added a beautiful Gretsch guitar to her live equipment of keys, keytar and effects and has put on dungarees. She frames her set with „Lost Dreams“ at the beginning and „Believer“ as final song. Between, the first composition „Little Bluebird“ has its place as well as the latest singles „Danny“ and „Wild Love“. From the video shooting she can tell, that performing on the roof of a car is not that easy that one could be thinking. 

After this beautiful start, Lia Nell would follow at Kramladen, who has been other Gürtel stations like Coco Bar before. But our way continues to Café Carina, where support act Berta Flat just finish their last tones of Psychedelic Jazz fusion. Talking about guitar heroes, there are Jimi Hendrix, BB King, Wino, Slash or John Frusciante. And after a short break, Leander Kirchpfening and the Churchpenny Allstars are up with their fantastic Blues Rock. 

They are three real characters, who harmonize greatly on stage. No frills but lumberjack shirts and gorilla feet refer to their lates EP „Gorilla Lumberjack“ featuring songs like „Little Sparrow“ and „Little Red Riding Hood“, shot at the same place as „Pretty Ugly“. Their set furthermore includes early hits like „Golden Flakes“ from „Pigeon Paradise“ or „Boogeyman“ from „Hit Machine“. For another encore, they are offered schnaps, but they obviously love to play anyway. So they convince once more with their Rock and performance like at Café Carina before where they will return in September and Aera, where they will be in November
