Marcus Füreder better known by his stage name Parov Stelar, is an Austrian musician, producer and DJ. His musical style is based on a combination of jazz, house, electro and breakbeat. He is known as one of the pioneers of electro swing. Marcus Füreder first appeared as a DJ at nightclubs during the mid-late 1990s. He got involved in producing and publishing in 2000. Having released his first maxi singles on Bushido (still using his real name and his stage name Plasma), Füreder founded the record label Etage Noir Recordings in 2003. A year later, now with the stage name Parov Stelar, the EP Kiss Kiss was immediately picked up by the influential Austrian radio station FM4. KissKiss, soon followed by the LP Rough Cuts, provided him with a breakthrough on the international electronic music scene.Parov Stelar was among the first who produced electronic swing music in Europe.With his album Shine the BBC named Parov Stelar as one of the most promising producers active in Europe today.[5] His specific approach to music production, combined with a proven sense of sound aesthetics, led to a reaction from audiences and colleagues all around the world, giving him a reputation as the founder of a new genre: Electro Swing.In November 2005 Parov Stelar had his first appearance together with a Live-Band. This kick-started a concert series in various European cities and prompted appearances at music festivals like Glastonbury, Eurockéennes, Rock Werchter, Solidays Sziget and Zurich Open Air as well as performances in Istanbul and Mexico City. The cast varies from the Parov Stelar Trio up to the full cast of the Parov Stelar Band consisting of Parov Stelar (Programming), Cleo Panther (Vocals), Marc Osterer (Trumpet), Sebastian Grimus (Saxophone), Willie Larsson Jr. (Drums) and Michael Wittner (Bass).He won three Amadeus Austrian Music Awards in 2013 (Best Live Act, Best Electronic Act, Best Album), one in 2012 (Best Electronic Act), one in 2014 (Best Live Act) and one in 2015 (Best Electronic Act).

The party kicks off at the first song and doesn't fade until long after the band has left the podium.

It was too expensive for the time they performed -only one hour and a half. Plus they didn't play the most famous songs e.g. the sun, lost in amsterdam etc. Mainly new songs to promote the new album. The performance was very nice but we left a bit dissapointed.
