And the snow came tumbling down!

Have you been out on the mountain, yet.? Have you experienced a bluebird morning which makes you feel like any worries are far behind you and all is right in the world..? Have you had the ski or snowboard this week that lifted your spirits, followed by an après where you danced your boots off and lifted other well known, local spirits (hello, Génépi!) as you said santé to your band, DJ, bar team and fellow mountain-lovers..? If you answered yes to any of those questions,  then you’ll definitely be making the most of your ski trip, season abroad or exquisite extension to your beautiful abode in the Alps.

What a wonderful, snowy start to 2019 it’s been – the stuff’s been falling thick and fast! The mountains, trees and forests look stunning, animal tracks can be spotted from your window, the roadside or when travelling to the top of your next run in a ski lift or bubble – or even when you’re headed for an off-piste adventure!

However, the roads and travelling conditions for musicians and DJs can be a little less dreamy, but travelling through various kinds of precipitation is all part of what our incredibly talented guys do to ensure you get your daily ski inspired party and relaxed hotel gig or private chalet musical experience. The professionalism of the Après Ski Bands artists is second to none!

Gigging the ultimate après ski party can be very chilly work, but the energy from the crowd, the music – and several on stage heaters or a roaring hotel fire – makes for an uplifting gig, each and every time.

Quality musicianship? Check. Snow covered back drop of mountains, slopes and multi coloured ski gear? Check. All the hits? Check. The skill and experience to create dance floor me mories for life? CHECK! The Après Ski Bands artists know their craft.

 

 

 

#What’sNew..? Silver Souled are here to play in the mountains!

As the ’18-’19 Après Ski Bands winter season continues to move forward in a snowy, mountainous melange of musical greatness, we welcome the legendary Silver Souled to the the Alps! Hailing from Bristol and formed in 2014, Naomi, Robbie, James, Martin and Matthew met and studied together at BIMM Bristol, attaining their degrees in Professional Musicianship. Their mutual love of all music from the 1960’s to present day R&B ensured this 5 piece were simply meant to be together. And take it from us, when you see a band perform for the first time and they make your whole body tingle within the opening bars of their first song, you know you’re witnessing something very special indeed.
From Stevie Wonder to David Bowie, Beyonce to Chaka Khan, Justin Timberlake to Otis Reading – this band’s full and varied style will knock your soulful socks off! Naomi’s magnificently powerful voice will grab you from the first note, right until the last.
Collectively, the band’s funky, soulful sound combined with a keyboard section to give a modern day twist on all genres, will boost the vibe on the classics and lift the up to date songs to the next level of a performance. Silver Souled are a uniquely gorgeous combination of musicians (and they are so very lovely, making them an absolute joy to work with..!) so what more could you ask for in the ultimate party band?!

Give your ears and eyes a treat this new year and check out Silver Souled at any of the following venues whilst they are with us in the mountains. And get ready for the body tingles – Silver Souled are here to make you and your après party sparkle!
