The Beat Freaks The Beat Freaks

It was at the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries that the first mentions of the „Difference Engine” - the progenitor of today's computers - appeared. No one had thought then that almost 200 years later it would fascinate four young artists from Szczecin (Poland), who would draw inspiration from the rich current of Steampunk culture. 

Progressive visions straight from the era of steam engine and engineering development combined with musical sensitivity and lyricism create a mixture as surprising as it is thrilling. The rhythm that is the basis of existence and progress has become the starting point for the world of melodious stories and unbridled improvisations, to which the musicians of The Beat Freaks invite.

The band was formed in 2014. They made their debut album “Leon” as well as music for the film “Zamoyski”. Musicians combine their experience gained in various musical formations to jointly develop a unique musical expression.

In October 2019 the band releases their second album “Stay Calm”, consisting of 13 original compositions.

Musicians boldly reach for elements of free-jazz, without forgetting about beautiful melodies and thrilling themes.

The Beat Freaks often refers to the rich tradition of Polish-Jazz and the Slavic romantic soul, while playing with both the form and rhythm of the songs.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
