In June 2012 the Michael Fridrik Trio began to play their music. It is about prewar Blues & Boogie played in a non-academic way.

Boogie and Blues - they are father and mother of all modern music sounds. So the MFT plays it with fun and joy.


Michael Fridrik (center) is the piano player. He started training hard on the Bösendorfer piano when he just was a small kid. Michael's been playing live about 15 years now. Since back then he has played in different blues bands. Michael has balls and a real fast right hand!


Max Schonka (left) is the drummer of the band. He has been playing in bands for more than 20 years now. With Timo Brunnbauer (right) he played together in the well-known Austrian Juke Joint Blues Band from 1997 to 2009.


Timo (Blindfinger) is the guitarist and singer of the gang. He is also part of Austria's best Chicago Bluesband, the Roosevelt Houserockers. He has performed with lots of big names in Blues biz - as a supporting musician or an "opener": he has met Johnny Winter, Corey Harris, Lurrie Bell or Paul Lamb in recent years. With harpman Paul Lamb (UK) he toured in 2013 & 14 & 16.
