BANDS & Djs

gentlemen & gangsters

Gentlemen & Gangsters

We’re so happy to finally have them in Vienna. They will jazz up our friday party and we can tell you – it’s gonna be a sizzling night.
Gentlemen & Gangsters play hot jazz with all the flair and sophistication of true gentlemen, coupled with the ruthless brutality of hardened gangsters. Like a devious conspiracy from a bygone era, this shady syndicate of jazz kingpins plot for world domination from their secret location in a run down part of Gothenburg. Armed with drumsticks instead of knuckle dusters and trombones instead of tommy guns these deranged masterminds spread mayhem, joy, and decadence wherever they go.

Maurer Big Band

Jump back in time with our local big band favourites – the Maurer Big Band. One of Viennas oldest big bands searched the archives and dug up some almost forgotten, swinging sleepers to excite the dancing crowd. Hop till you drop to some rarely heard tunes and the smash hits from the golden age of swing.

The Locations

vsx-location-overview

SCHWARZBERG – Welcome Party – Thursday

Schwarzenbergplatz 10, 1040 Wien

The now called “Schwarzberg” (previously known as “Ost-Club”) is a well established institution in Vienna. In 1945 some GI’s founded the very first Jazzclub in Austria there. Today it’s a music venue & wine bar. 2 separate, wooden floors and the cosy atmosphere make this the first choice location for our welcome party at VSX2014.

HAUS DER BEGEGNUNG – Hot Jazz Night – Friday

Gatterburggasse 2a, 1190 Wien

The (directly translated) „house of encounter” – a lovely medium sized ballroom with very nice (and slippery) wooden floors, perfect for slides, balboa shuffles, and to dance all night long to the hottest swingin’ Jazz of Gentlemen and Gangsters.

KUPPELSAAL – Big Band Saturday

Karlsplatz 13, 1040 Wien (5th floor – way up under the roof)

Visiting the awesome “Kuppelsaal” (dome hall) the first time you’ll need a couple of minutes to realize what’s going on. This location is simply stunning and amazing – it reminds one of an upside down Noah’s Ark with it’s special wooden rooftop architecture.
Belonging to the TU (Technical University of Vienna) the “Kuppelsaal” is a huge location where normally major celebrations of the technical university take place. Its curved roof is all made of wood, warmly lit and creates an amazingly cozy atmosphere. The floor is wooden too, of course, and quite slippery, so bring leather soles and maybe some spare sneakers.
It’s one of Vienna’s most amazing dance locations ever and we are very proud to have our main party with Vienna’s finest SwingDJs and the Maurer Big Band there – you don’t wanna miss this unique experience!

BADESCHIFF – Goodbye Party – Sunday

Donaukanal close to Urania and Schwedenplatz

A boat lying in the Danube Canal in the heart of the city, with wooden floor and a deck to get some fresh air and enjoy the lights of the city by night. It has a floating pool attached hence the name “Badeschiff” meaning bathing ship. A nice restaurant and swimming location at daytime it’s perfect for some dancing and feeling a bit sailory at night. “Badeschiff” is maybe the loveliest venue for our regular social dancing in Vienna, “Swing the Boat” is taking place every second Sunday so we wanted to make sure you get a taste of it too! You don’t want to miss this!
