Chris Jagger's 'Atcha' concert in Kufstein, Austria, was one of the author's best concerts ever
It's was a special warm up-gig for 'Atcha's' following Europe tour. The audience of about 150 people
had an unforgettable experience.
Chris opened the concert warmly and after his second
song, the great "Channel Fever", he invited the audience to come closer to the stage for
The concert itself was Rock, Blues and Zydeco, some very fast country style, but also a
lot of great lyrics and some impressive ballads as well. The whole concert was full of
energy, which 'Atcha' gave to the audience.
Most impressive was the charme of the band !
Chris introduced his songs in rather good German, and danced and played the washboard
amongst the audience. Wow!
Charlie Hart played wonderfully on both Fiddle and Accordion, working together perfectly
with Chris and the audience. Charlie seemed to be a little shy, but felt comfortable

Ed Deane was incredible on guitar !
His guitar, supported by Paul Emile on bass and Malcolm Mortimer on the drums, was more
By the way, thanks for the great conversation and fun we had !
Chris sings about his family, 'Crazy': brother likes to get up on the stage and raise the hullabaloo...
Chris also asked the audience for a keyboard player to play with him. He found one, of course, but
where is the live CD of this great experience ?
Chris, thanks a lot for this great show !
