BIO

ABOUT THE BAND

OH YEAH, WE ARE the KUHN FU
4 guys, 4 nationalities, 1 GROOVE!
we intended to write the USUAL band bio here:
when we started, where, why and WHAT ICECREAM we prefer bla bla
the real story is probably as boring as most band bios.
it is true we all studied jazz. we are all well educated western/eastern, upper/lower middle class men.
people who listen to jazz say we are a rock band. people who listen to rock music think we play jazz. kind of a dilemma.
to all the LOST SOULS,
LOSERS, SLACKERS. we aim FOR YOU!
anyway some namedropping now:
Christian

Christian Kuhn

 

THE KUHN’ founder, composer and inevitably the HEADLESS LEADER of this organization, very german though there is some spanish blood in him. tender age of 33, at times stressed, but someone has to be!

Ziv1

Ziv Taubenfeld

 

from Israel. if Buddha would be reborn, it would probably be in the form of Ziv Taubenfeld. this man CAN’T GET ANGRY. besides being buddha he plays the bass clarinet. very low, very high, very loud. he likes free jazz!

Esat

 

Esat Ekincioglu

 

from Istanbul. An OLD WISE MAN trapped in the body of a fragile little TURKISH BASSPLAYER. he plays the acoustic bass but turns THE AMP LOUDER than any electric bassplayer. best of both worlds!

Lav

Lav Kovac

 

 the intuitive Serbian. We don’t know if RATIONAL THINKING ever occurred to him. It probably would disturb the constant flow of creating and hitting things, because, err you know, he is a DRUMMER.

 

CHECK US OUT LIVE IF YOU CAN!
if not,
watch a video. If you do, same instructions as for Rolling Stones LPs count.
PLAY THEM LOUD! this is supposed to be Jazz for the Hips not the brain

Take Care and THANKS for reading

yours

KUHN FU
