Papa Legba's Blues Lounge populated comes from southern Hesse Darmstadt on the edge of the fen, a crisscrossed by innumerable streams former marshland, whose warm, moist air in the summer of myriads of blood-sucking mosquitoes. Although there are no alligators, but the resemblance to the Mississippi Delta is obvious. And here as there, the ideal climate for the Blues leave to thrive.
Preferably, the band played without amplification. Just as the blues at the beginning of last century in the Mississippi Delta has been played - by Robert Johnson, Fred McDowell, Son House, and Sony Boy Williamson. And so is the sound of blues harp, tin guitar (dobro) and double bass is the best effect, no electronic tricks and gadgets. Jürgen Queissner to sing, Reiner Lenz and Thomas Heldmann partially three voices like the legendary Big Three Trio of Willie Dixon.
Although familiar with the three musicians for decades and appreciate, they decided until about three years ago to found a purely acoustic trio Blue. Since then, Papa Legba's Blues Lounge, thousands thrilled at the Munich Student Festival Stustaculum at the Ingolstadt and Schwetzingen jazz days, when Tucher Jazz and Blues Festival in Bamberg, the Blues Festival "Blues, applesauce, apple sauce," the Rose Festival in Kronach or the Stoffel Openair in Frankfurt, in addition to countless pubs, clubs, at parties and festivals.
