Veronika Vítová

Born in Prague, Veronika has loved music all her life first playing the piano as a child and singing for many years with Bambini di Praga. What was once a hobby has now become her life. Having studied singing with Professor Vratislav Kadlec and Filip Gondolán in the past, she worked as a flight attendant for almost 9 years before finally realizing that music is her passion and has devoted herself to it fully. As a student at the Jaroslav Jezek Conservatory, she studied jazz under the direction of Miriam Bayle and singing technique with the great opera singer Hana Pecková. She currently collaborates with many outstanding jazz musicians. Veronika performs at jazz clubs in Prague and the Czech Republic with her quartet as featured in the Tribute to Bill Evans project. She is a regular guest of the Neratovice Big Band orchestra, the Vaclav Hybš Orchestra, Magnum Jazz Big Band, a member of the soloist chamber of the Musica Malinconico orchestra devoted to early music, is part of the Kühn Mixed Choir, and has also been featured in the show Kudykam by Michal Horacek and Petr Hapka. Having recently attended the prestigious International Jazz Workshop in Banff, Canada under the leadership of Dave Douglas, she is currently working on her own compositions with lead guitarist Petr Zelenka and drummer Martin Novak in the experimental free - improvisational project Soundcolor. She teaches private singing, intonation and music theory.

Alice Bauer

Born into a musical family in Prague (brother Varhan O. Bauer is a composer and conductor of the Okamžitý Filmový Orchestr - OFO), she fell in love with the piano at an early age. Later studied at the Jaroslav Jezek Conservatory in parallel with her studies at Charles University in Prague, but was then lured into singing and jazz which is now her number one priority. Alice's activities revolve not only around jazz and blues, but also original projects, such as the Jazzika band and Cosmic Passengers / Hi-Fi.

Has recently been collaborating extensively with Jan Kořínek and the Groove band, with whom she recorded the album Our Kind of Blues, and, virtually from its inception, has been a key member of the OFO (Worchester Scandal - as a pianist). Alice has sung a number of her brother songs in films, documents, books, and music, amongst others, in addition to the quasi baroque aria in Milos Forman's Goya's Ghosts with the very same orchestra. She is also a member of the Original Prague Syncopated Orchestra (OPSO) led by Pavel Klikar, still going strong as a world-renowned ensemble and one of the few bands on the planet to interpret jazz from the golden age of the 1920s and 1930s and transpose it into an uncannily faithful 20th century-style with improvisation, arrangements, techniques and vocal performance. Alice happily and skillfully translates her own written texts from and into English which has become a second mother tongue, a language without which her music is incomplete. An example of her work in Czech can be found on Ondrej Ruml’s debut album "Metamorphosis".

Michal Strnad

In 2011 he graduated from the Jaroslav Jezek Conservatory where he studied jazz singing. But his musical journey was not straightforward. At age of 12 he started to play guitar. His teenage passion for rock music has then resulted in revealing the world of jazz at the age of 17. He has participated in several jazz workshops and taken private lessons with Roman Hampacher and David Dorůžka. Then he studied social work and psychotherapy in college, at that time he sang in the half-amateur choir „Apsora“ under the direction of Ida Kelarova, where singing became his new passion. After that he took private singing lessons with Filip Gondolán and was accepted to a jazz department of the Jaroslav Jezek Conservatory. There he studied singing under the direction of Miriam Bayle and Hana Pecková. In addition to Skety, Michal plays and sings with his bands Slightly Bended (pop/jazz/latin) and Backbeats (pop&rock covers), sings regularly with the Magnum Jazz Big Band and has been featured in the show Kudykam by Michal Horáček.

Štěpán Janoušek

Born in 1989 in Klatovy where he became avidly interested in music, first passively and then actively as he taught himself the flute and harmonica. Participated in the art school of Jaroslav Klička choir in Klatovy and the choir at Karafiát Elementary School Čapkova a few years later. He ventured into a new musical dimension when, at the age of eleven, Štěpán took up the trombone and joined the School of Music under the direction of František Kubáně. A year later he became a member of the Youth Brass Orchestra at the same school.

At twelve, he was determined to pursue his studies at the noted Pilsen Conservatory of music, but armed with an increasing awareness of jazz, he opted to study trombone at the Jaroslav Jezek Conservatory in Prague in 2005 from which he graduated in 2011. His formative years at the conservatory included appearances in many bands such as Green Smatroll, the College Big Band conducted by Milan Svoboda, and the Mocca Malacco quintet. Has also been a member of the Czech Radio Big Band since 2010. His studies afforded him the opportunity to attend many festivals in the Czech Republic and abroad including the Next Generation Festival in California and the International Junior Jazz Festival in Usti nad Labem, where he was awarded the prize for best soloist of the year in 2009. Štěpán is now in his second year of studying singing at the Jaroslav Jezek Conservatory.

Petr Wajsar

Petr Wajsar / born 40th 13th 3068 / October 25 as the reincarnation of Bodhisattva, he is a virtual time bomb in Czech show business. His real identity lies behind masks, leaving physical existence behind, yet occasionally revealing himself in human form to the outside world, such as his current mimesis as that of a musician and arranger/composer. Among his more reputable media activities is the musical "Pornstars" which he wrote together with Petr Kolečko and Tomas Svoboda earning him a nomination for the Alfred Radok Award for 2010. With a string quartet Epoque and the singer Gabriela Vermelho he formed the group eWAVE, he is the backbone of the giant vocal-instrumental ensemble Mandelbrotovy Kostičky starring conductor Lukas Prchal and showwoman Ester Kočičková. Currently as a singer and bass player he is enjoying success cruising Czech clubs and festivals under the auspices of the dance-jazz band HI-FI. In addition to his composing, arranging, playing, singing and assorted corrupt activities, he is applying for the position of conductor of the Society of Prague Volunteer Arsonists' Chamber Choir. For Czech composers and performers he organizes frequent concerts featuring the works of students. Collects submarines. In 2008 he received the OSA award as most played young composer of classical music in 2008.
