Welcome to Montreux

Bright, airy, and convivial: the stamp of Festival founder and local son Claude Nobs is on every square inch of the three distinct spaces of this brand-new fifth Montreux Jazz Café. Adjacent to the lobby of the Palace, Le Lounge, with its private salon ambiance, is the perfect place to enjoy the company of Montreux restidents and visitors from all over the world, any time of the day. To the non-stop rhythms of the greatest ever Montreux Jazz Festival concerts on the big screens, the Montreux Jazz Café reflects the intoxicating environment of the Festival both in its dishes and its décor. Amazing memorabilia is carefully displayed as though in someone’s home: a Jukebox here, and over there the kimono given to Claude Nobs by Freddy Mercury. All over the walls, emblematic photos from a half-century of musical history make this a new tourism destination showcasing artistic and culinary treasures. Finally, with its unbelievable line-up of traditional and exclusive cocktails along with a straightforward, festive menu, Funky Claude’s Bar is not only THE place to gather even in the wee hours, but also the new premier live stage in town.

Tobias Carshey
25.10 in Montreux

Semicolon follows his debut album Bye Bye - alluding to the semicolon tattoo trend. It reminds people who have survived a suicide attempt that their life goes on; the sentence has not ended yet. The semicolon is also used as a sign of solidarity with victims of mental illness. The often very subtle tattoo is intended as a conversation starter for bringing awareness to the topic. The singer has experienced the effects of depression firsthand and hopes this album title can contribute to the movement.
The songs are more earthy and ironic than their predecessors. Carshey takes his time with the music, giving the band more room to break out. Both energetic and intimate at the same time.
