The music of Le Rex reveals a spectacular kaleidoscope of crispy popgrooves, balkanese horn riffs, intoxicating and frisky rhythm'n'blues parts and the sweet bitterness of leaden ballads. Even though the five musicians play without any electricity, they definitely are electrifying at all times. After recording two CDs with transportable equipment at different locations, the first capturing the French summer at the beaches of the island Corsica, in cow fields and forest with cicades, the second recorded all over Switzerland, playing street music and clubs, scrap yards, on farms, rest stops etc., they will record their new material in Chicago on this occasion. Le Rex' breath-taking soloists and adventurous music fascinates not only on their road trips, but also brought them to festivals and club tours all over Europe and the States.
