Let's be lazy at night!

The Lazy Blues parties will be just as lazy and relaxed as the event name suggests. No big fuss, just lots of love for the blues.

All parties will be held at abz – which means: one location for both, classes and parties.

We will have live music on all three nights and the best DJ's-tunes between the live sessions.

We will provide you with tap water and coffee. Please feel free to bring your favorite drinks and some snacks, not only during classes but also at the parties!

Several dancers have severe nut allergies. Please leave all nuts and peanuts at home, so we do not have to take anyone to the hospital!


Friday & Saturday - party with Stefano Ronchi

As a first in Lazy Blues' short history award nominated guitarrist and singer Stefano Ronchi will play two evenings – for the laziest of blues experiences.

 

 

Stefano Ronchi

Stefano “Slidin’ Wolf” Ronchi is an Italian blues guitar player and singer living in Berlin. His way of composing and arranging is grounded in old black folklore music from the 20’s and 30’s, from Delta Blues and Piedmont Blues, through old Spirituals, stomp and “swamp” sounds.
Passionate about slide guitar, he looks at the tradition with his personal, modern and respectful attitude. He is constantly touring around the World, playing in blues clubs, Festival, and blues dance events as solo artist or collaborating with other great musicians and bands, such as Tony Coleman, The Baseballs, Dan Nash, Marcos Coll, Marko Jovanovic, Micha Maass, The Lonesome Millionaires, Jessie Gordon, The Roaring Rag Beastie, and many more.


Sunday party with Linda Kyei and Rufus Herbertson

On Sunday's party we'd like to present an one-off collaboration of two of our favorite blues musicians:
Linda Kyei and Rufus Herbertson.

Linda Kyei

Linda started making music very early - taking music lessons at the age of 3. Steeped in Chrisitan tradition the singer, whose roots go partly back to Ghana, has been a member of several choirs. At the age of 14, Linda was already heading her own Gospel projects and started composing her own music. During some workshops (among others by Melva Houston) she discovered her love of Soul and Jazz.

 

Rufus Herbertsson

Rufus is one of BluesKitchen Stuttgart's favorites. His voice perfectly teams up with his old guitar and his steel guitar slide to play rough delta blues, ragtime-inspired urban blues, and folk songs by Skip James, Son House, Leadbelly, Charlie Patton, Reverend Gary Davis, and many more.


Our DJs

Of course, all our parties won't stay silent, once the musicians have left the stage.

These are our DJs who will spin their laziest tunes.

Flouer Evelyn

Many years ago Flouer fell in love with blues dancing, and ever since she has been fascinated with blues movement, history, and music.
DJing has turned into a passion for her, the meditative process of discovering and organizing music & the thrill of watching a room of dancers thrum are some of her favorite things to do.
She has created musical experiences for dancers all over Australia, Europe, Canada, and the US, as well as DJing regularly at events in her home town of New York City.  
Thanks for listening- now get up and dance!

Eran Tobi

All the way from the desert in Israel, through the bays of Istanbul, the backyards of Berlin and up to the northern lights of Iceland, the energetic as well as the smooth tunes of Eran's mix of music has captivated the ears, eyes and heart of dancers. You can be sure that not only your feet will want to dance!

Dáire Mac An Bháird

Dáire likes his music like he likes his whiskey; aged and mellow. He was born under a bad sign in Holland and has both lived, taught and DJed blues all over Europe. A mover and shaker in more ways than one, he is one of the founders of blues in Delft, Holland and co-organises Crash! The Delft Blues Festival.
He has boundless enthusiasm for teaching, and is always researching and expanding his knowledge of blues music and dance, both on and off the floor.
He wants to see you get into your dancing body, be present with your partner, and find your individual expression of the music.

DJ "Grandpa Slowhand"

"Grandpa Slowhand" from Kiel on the Baltic Sea has a penchant for blues music for a very long time now, and especially for the very slow blues.
After initially only local occasions he has gained international experienceand and played among others at the Prague Blues Exchange, at the Ljubljana Blues Exchange, at the Valentines Blues in Warsaw, at the Bear Blues Exchange in Berlin, at the Hummingbird Blues Exchange in Krakow and at the Vienna Sugar Blues.
“I love to see you dancing and dreaming to my music so I'm looking forward to the Lazy Blues in Stuttgart”, says Jörg.
