Big Foot Mama

Big Foot Mama is in every sense the most followed Slovene rock band in the past 20 years. They were originally established in 1990 as a high school band with affinities for rock'n'roll music (The Rolling Stones, The Cult, The Black Crowes). In January 1991 the band adopted the name Big Foot Mama and started recording their own albums. After their third album Tretja dimenzija [The Third Dimension] (1999), they were considered the rock/pop band of the decade, breaking sales records in the rock category and selling out some of the biggest venues in the capital of Ljubljana such as Križanke and Tivoli Hall (Hala Tivoli), which had previously been considered as unconquerable for Slovene rock bands. Their last album from 2007 is ambiguously called Važno, da zadane [As Long as it Hits]. The band has been touring and performing in all venues possible across Slovenia, from small clubs, pubs to big festivals. It sticks to rock lyrics in Slovenian and its slang alterations. In the year 2010 they celebrated their 20th anniversary with a documentary film about the band’s career, called Tist' dan v tednu [That Day of the Week]). Currently the band is working on their 7th album that's due to come out in 2012. They already launched 2 new singles: Pot iz trnja [The Path out of Thorns]) and Umazan dež [Dirty Rain].

Big Band KK

Although Big Band KK has existed since the eighties (and was formerly know as Big Band Krško), it was practically and formally established in 1994, when Aleš Suša took over as the band's leader and conductor. Playing various kinds of music, from swing and Latin to fusion and jazz-rock, the band has long been one of the better non-professional big bands in the region and a number of successful instrumentalists have embarked from under its wings. Still, the band's musical high point was the 2013 release of its first album titled Depeched, on which it present covers of seven Depeche Mode songs. The album has garnered an unexpectedly positive response from critics and listeners, which led to the band's invitation to play on the festival Jazz Montreux, a rare feat for Slovene musicians.
