Mo at the Metropol in Vienna

Mo Metropol

On 2/16 at 8pm there is a live concert of Mo & band with Andy Baum as special guest at the Metropol in Vienna, Austria. They both started their music careeers at Vickerl Adam´s Hallucination Company, where Falco and Hansi Lang made their first steps to stardom, too. Update: nice concert. Mo is a really good musician, but when he interprets classics like Ben E. King´s "Stand by me" he is exceptional and gives me goose bumps while listening! Really great!
