General Information

Year of Foundation:  1996

Rock n Roll, oldies, evergreens with that certain something, cool and professionally played with a lot of energy and enthusiasm. That is DIE PRÄSIDENTEN, or at least how their fan base views what they consider to be the best cover band in Burgenland since 1996.


And recently the five musicians from Eisenstadt can do something else. Imagine five good looking men in black suits white shirts, narrow ties vintage instruments with a lot of glitter paint and old wood. Think of the sound of Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Frank Sinatra, Miles Davis and Etta James. Fingers are snapping, and hearts are swinging…



In the 2015 lineup with the two jazz fuelled new-comers Alexander Sieber on guitar and Philipp Jagschitz on keyboards the standing crew of Peter Szenczy (drums and vocals), Manfred Kröpfl (saxophone, harmonica, flute and vocals) and Kurt Grath (bass) now offer something new. An evening filling program of jazz and swing, but with that presidential sound. 


Die Präsidenten move weddings and dance floors to dance, turn company parties into rock n roll events, birthdays into unforgettable evenings with the favourite songs of the birthday child from the past decades. And they can turn any event, if so wished, into a jazz club filled with the sounds of New York, Chicago and New Orleans.
