2nd Saas-Fee Raiffeisen Concert Series

From today until next 28 August Saas-Fee/Saastal Tourism together with the Raiffeisenbank Mischabel-Matterhorn, the main sponsor, is once again offering music for (almost) every taste with the Saas-Fee Raiffeisen Concert Series this summer. The idea: a concert cocktail of very diverse musical styles. The objective of this concert series is to appeal to a broad audience; the
concerts are intended to be as diverse as the guests in the Saas Valley. And the best part: admission to all events is free!.
This year guests will enjoy entertaining evenings with songs from the roaring sixties, Spanish and Latin American rhythms, rock in Swiss dialect, swing, jazz and blues as well as show and party music. Four concerts will be performed in Saas-Fee and one in Saas-Grund. Weather permitting, the concerts will be held in the village square or the post office square in Saas-Fee and in the old village square in Saas-Grund. In adverse weather the events will be held in the Saas-Fee gymnastics hall and the Saas-Grund conference hall. The concert series begins on 7 August with the Beatles cover band The Beatles Unlimited. The band's appeal is underpinned by authentic costumes, original instruments and equipment, the quality of their music, their lively performance and excellent acting.
On 12 August the band Alma brings Spanish and Latin American flair to the glacier village.
The following concert on 21 August brings Bernese rock to Saas-Fee. The cult band Span is back on the Swiss concert scene with a new line-up and plenty of musical energy.
Next the band BrassBuffet is serving up a spicy combination of jazz, swing, blues, soul and other musical styles on 24 August (Saas-Almagell, marching performance) and 25 August (Saas-Grund, concert).
At the end of the concert series on 28 August, the stage will be cleared for the Amorados Show Band, Germany's outstanding gala, show and party band.
