Police Cancel Performance

If you were one of the people standing in a quiet restaurant in Basel expecting a concert, you may already be in the know. For those here to find out how the concert was, well, there wasn't one. Unfortunately, today at about 4PM a legal petition was delivered to Tibiz Basel prohibiting music louder than 75dB --about the same noise level as your household dishwasher. If you've heard Hedreich or Tanja, you know they each sing, uh, a bit louder than a dishwasher, thus the cancelled performance. Let's hope the performance takes place in some form in the future.

Grammy Nominated

In addition to hanging at number one with Polo, Hedreich is also a part of the Grammy nominated "Living Your Dream". The Michael Jackson tribute song has just been confirmed in 12 categories. Don't forget to check out the video in our media section. And if you happen to be in Basel, stop into Tibiz to get your groove on. Tanja Dankner and her band will be putting down the sound and Hedreich will be the featured guest of the evening. If you're in the area, it will be an evening not to be missed. And if you're not in the area, it may just be well worth the drive!

Hanging with Polo at number 1

The Swiss rock legend Polo Hofer decided to Gospel-and-Blues it up so he called Hedreich along with Freda Goodlet to put some soul into "Ds Letschte Hemmli". The song, which would probably be titled "You Can't Take It With You" in English, is in the number 1 slot on the Swiss charts. And when you get toward the end, I think you'll hear Hedreich's unmistakeable voice doing ad libs over the Chorus...

Congratulations Das Office and Powerplay

Hedreich took a few hours off from music making to get an up close and personal look at the new Powerplay studios. After a soft renovation, Powerplay presented it's new look to a host of singers, musicians, producers and Swiss music business elite. The staff at Powerplay and Das Office combined powers to create an event that only Claudia Boggio could have masterminded; Studio 1 converted to an intimate club with some of Switerland's hottest new bands playing, the reception area converted to a bar, and a HUGE grill and salad buffet...altogether they created a fine evening of music and magic befitting the grande dame of the Swiss studios. Even "Mr. Powerplay" himself, Jürg Peterhans was on hand for the festivities. And of course, no musician can be around music and really be off duty. So if you see Hedreich and the Flash playing with a Cajon and shakers instead of a kit, you can trace it back to this evening!
