Author Topic: The "Private Investigators" from Austria - give them a listen ... ;-)  (Read 207 times)

Hey there,

Recently I came across a "Dire Straits"-cover band in my area (Upper Austria), which consists of very experienced musicians and music school teachers with masterclass degrees.
I'm usually quite picky with cover bands - but in this case I'm amazed and pleasantly surprised at the authentic sound and feeling the guys bring across. In my opinion this is very close to the original - especially instrumentally - but I also like it vocally!
I contacted the drummer - he said that they played drums, bass, keyboards and rhythm guitar in one go during the recording in order to keep it alive - afterwards they added solos and vocals ...
The guys will be performing some concerts in Austria in the summer - let's see if they sound as good live ...

Some snippets from "Calling Elvis", "Down to the waterline" and "Sultans of Swing": https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6Hy7i6-03I1ti1gOxSaYrw

By the way: Don't confuse them with other cover bands with unfortunately the same name, circulating on Youtube - these are their only 3 clips available.

Any comments from you, guys?

Gold, really good. Great sound.
