passion for music

The Festival’s visionary founder Claude Nobs had the idea to systematically film every artist who ever performed on stage since the beginning of the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1967. This archival collection is at the heart of the Montreux Jazz Café concept. Guests enjoy fine dining along with the exclusive experience of legendary concerts on multiple screens all year long. This cultural heritage is so priceless that in 2013 UNESCO decided to include the entire audiovisual collection—which is still growing!—in the “Memory of the World” Register.

Sophie de Quay & The WaveGuards
03.10 in Geneva

For two years now, the Sophie de Quay & the WaveGuards band has performed more than 100 concerts throughout the world: Switzerland, France, Belgium, Romania, Spain, Lebanon, New York and even South-East Asia. Thanks to their audacity, sensitivity, enthusiasm, spontaneity and openness on the world, Sophie, Simon and Tim show their authenticity on stage and rely on Pascal Auberson, their godfather and mentor, to “experiment” their music with them, or on Patrick Bruel who has been following Sophie since the beginning of her musical career. He even recently invited her to join him on stage for a duet during the Caribana Festival!

No need to introduce them anymore! With more than 700 shows to date, Geneva based Time Machine is recognized today as one of the best and most entertaining live Swiss bands, especially after its numerous successes at the Montreux Jazz Festival!
Much more than a simple cover band, Time Machine puts on a dynamic and festive live show based on the best 70’s and 80’s disco-funk and soul hits. A must see!
