Founded in 2006, 5/8erl in Ehr’n has developed its own musical style: “Viennese soul.” The constellation of double bass, acoustic guitar, Wurlitzer, and accordion makes for a special timbre; the mix of jazz, soul, and blues for a unique flair. Since its debut album “Es muss was wunderbares sein” (2008), the group has played to countless sold-out audiences and garnered three Amadeus Austrian Music Awards. In April 2017 they released their 5th album “Duft der Männer” on Viennese Soulfood Records.
5/8erl in Ehr´n are: Max Gaier (vocals), Bobby Slivovsky (vocals), Miki Liebermann (guitar) , Clemens Wenger (accordion, piano) and Hanibal Scheutz (string bass).
