Not content to rest on their laurels! British funkjazz group Jamiroquai headed by front man Jay Kay got a full STEEL ARENA dancing and singing. From the first minute of the concert, the stadium was alive.
The city of Košice is the starting point and entry gate to a region with six UNESCO locations and four national parks. All these are accessible within two hours from the city. It is an ideal combination for longer stays. Almost no destination in Europe has similar parameters, which creates great potential for cultural/sightseeing tourism.
The unique TRIANGO project from Peter Breiner returned to Košice to the Historic Town Hall yesterday. As part of the opening ceremony of ECOC 2013, the Slovak trio of top musicians: Peter Breiner (pianist and composer), Stano Paluch (violinist) and Boris Lenko (accordionist) offered their fans a dose of great music. The TRIANGO Project conceals a sparky embrace of the passion of dance-halls in Buenos Aires, as well as jazz improvisation.
In the late hours of Saturday the band Peter Bič Project pleased its fans – with songs from their old album as well as new ones. The evening passed off in a great atmosphere. The band started the concert at exactly 21.00 and really got things going in the club – people had a great time, dancing and singing. There was a large number of fans and the club was packed. “We played pretty much everything. We usually play a few covers, we have a lot of them, but today I thought it would be a special gig where we play as few covers as possible – there were only three of them in the end – and the rest were our songs. It is very nice that people still don’t know the songs from the new CD and so they are pleased to have fun with us,” said band leader Peter Bič.
Connecting People – this is one of the most important missions of culture, which was done perfectly on Saturday evening by the young Serbian musician, accordion player Petar Marić. Whilst to date very few people had heard of him in Košice, since the ECOC 2013 Opening Ceremony weekend he has become an unforgettable figure, and not only for the people of Košice.
