Price: 10.00

The Schragged Out Sessions are back!! With Lionel Lodge and his Schragged Out Band

The infamous Schragged Sessions held at Cafe Schrag in the 7th district ran from 2005 to 2007, every Thursday eve. Since then the band has recorded and played many shows but not returned to the loose and open, living-room-feel of the Sessions until now!

On October 19th there were 2 bands booked into Reigen. Both bands came down with the flu and had to cancel. There was a last min call for a replacement band. Lionel Lodge and his Schragged Out Band were asked to do a Session. The night they opened up the songs and played in ways they hadn't since 2007. Playful, silly and strikingly musical. The eve was enjoyed by all so much that it has been decided to do another one, another Schragged Out Session! On December 8th 2016 the Schragged Out Band will set up, start the first song and then see what unfolds and where the music takes them. Some special friends will be called up to join in at times. All unrehearsed, All playing by feel, All in the name of Fun!

The Schragged Out Band are

Lionel Lodge vocals and acoustic guitar

Peter Beinhofer accordion and backing vocals

Franz Haselsteiner piano

Stephan Stoney Steiner violin

Alex Gantz electric guitar

Joe Schirl electric bass

Daniel Klemmer drums and percussion


Die Schrägged Out Sessions. Mit Lionel Lodge und seiner Schrägged Out Band

Die berühmt berüchtigten Schrägged Sessions im Cafe Schräg im 7. Bezirk fanden von 2005 bis 2007 jeden Donnerstagabend statt. Seit damals hat die Band zwei Alben aufgenommen und veröffentlicht und viele Konzerte gespielt, ist aber nicht mehr zu dem lockeren und freien Wohnzimmer-Gefühl der Schrägged Sessions zurückgekehrt, bis jetzt!

Am 19. Oktober 2016 mussten die beiden für diesen Abend im Reigen gebuchten Bands aus Krankheitsgründen ihre Auftritte absagen, also musste rasch Ersatz gefunden werden. Lionel Lodge und seine Schrägged Out Band wurden eingeladen eine Session zu spielen. An diesem Abend spielten die Musiker ihre Songs in einer Art und Weise wie sie es seit 2007 nicht mehr getan hatten, spielerisch, albern und auffallend musikalisch. Alle genossen den Abend dermaßen, dass man sich für eine weitere entschied, eine weitere Schrägged Out Session! Am 8. Dezember 2016 wird die Schrägged Out Band aufbauen, den ersten Song starten und dann sehen was sich ergibt und wohin die Musik sie führt. Der eine oder andere besondere Freund wird im Laufe des Abends zum Mitmusizieren auf die Bühne gebeten werden. Alles ungeprobt, alles nach Gefühl, alles nach dem Motto Spaß!
