Our 100th concert – In between books session, featuring the Kiero Grande band. By 2019, the band has managed to establish itself on the Central European blues scene, although the “box” of blues has always been too difficult for them. Genre-wise, they are currently straddling the boundaries of rock, blues, punk and a bit of prog, but the extensive experience of the individual members from various projects allows them to adapt to these genre frameworks. Kiero Grande has already released two albums on his own. “Unorthodox” from 2016 and “Heavy Hands” from 2019. In 2022, the band collaborates with producer and sound engineer Greg Gordon from the USA, who has worked with Rival Sons, Triggerfinger, Ghost, Slipknot and even Slayer in the past. Together they are working on an audiovisual recording of the live essence of Kiero Grande in the current line-up, which is enriched by drummer Peter Garaj and keyboardist Pavol Hlaváč. The work is a bridge between previous albums and the upcoming one. Most of these tracks and a few others will be heard in a special version adapted for the session.
