On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the stage, there will be a concert with Storklane on 31 October 2021 in the Werkstatt Chur. Since the beginning of the seventies, the name Storklane Rock & Bluesband has stood for earthy, powerful rock and blues music. The band was founded in 1971 by the brothers Heinz and H.R. Karst. Mario Giovanoli on the flute and Andrea Caprez as bassist were taken on board as comrades-in-arms. Rehearsals took place in Chur at Storchengasse 17 in the cellar vaults of the house, where legend has it that the painter HR Giger operated a ghost train at a young age.
The influence of The Jimi Hendrix Experience and The Cream on the Karst brothers was then and still is unmistakable today. At the concerts, of course, the band still has the music of The Cream, The Jimi Hendrix Eperience, JJ. Cale, Alvin Lee the Rolling Stones, Crocodile, Joe Cocker and others in their luggage. Even today, the band inspires not only the older "jungebliebenen" semesters. Fortunately, there are always younger people who appreciate "handmade music" at the Storklane concerts.
The current formation consists of Heinz Karst: Guit./Voc. H.R.Karst: Drums, Mario Giovanoli: Sax/Flute, Walti Schmid: Bass/Voc. and Riccarda Caflisch: Voc. It is pleasing that all four members of the founding formation of 1971 are still in good health and with Heinz Karst, H.R.Karst and Mario Giovanoli their three are still in the band.
