Special info:

Due to the measures taken by the Swiss Federal Council in order to restrict the spreading of the corona virus that came into effect on 27th February 2020 and are ongoing, currently any kind of events are banned and concert locations ordered to close until June 8th 2020, while events with more than 1'000 attendees are not allowed to take place until 31. August 2020.

This means that all concerts during this time period cannot take place as previously planned. We are working hard on confirming replacement-dates for all shows, so you can still enjoy your favourite artists, only on another day. We are keeping you updated about each postponed show date individually in the corresponding artist & show information pages as well as via our social media channels. Please refer to these for the accurate status on the concert you wanted to attend.

Stay healthy, follow the recommended hygiene procedures and don’t lose your love for music!

Thank you, your team at Just Because.

Prinz Grizzley

Pop, Rock

Blues, honky tonk, and melancholic country probably aren’t the first things people anywhere would associate with the mountains of Austria. But that is exactly what the audience can expect when Chris Comper hits the stage as Prinz Grizzley.

He performs music from the heart. A heart heavily influenced by “mountains, forests, stubbornness, warmth of heart, religiosity and part of a very simple life”. It is a mix of Austrian alpine culture expressed through the sounds of Americana. It isn’t too surprising that it works. There has been a long standing tradition in the US of absorbing aspects of immigrant culture and building it back into the sounds that would eventually become so iconic. Now it’s possible for that process to be reversed and for the result to feel just as organic. Heartbreak, loneliness, and melancholy are universal experiences that just happen to be enhanced by a certain honky-tonk swing, the sound of a pedal steel guitar, or a voice from someone who has just seen too much.

Prinz Grizzley has since released an EP ("Wide Open Country") and a debut LP ("Come on in"). He has also built up a considerable following on the European market by performing a slew of festivals and tours in Ireland, England, Germany, Switzerland and Italy. In 2018 he also performed on the SXSW in Austin Texas, on the Americanafest in Nashville and was the support act for Seasick Steve´s "Can u cook" whole Europe and UK tour!
