Steamboat Switzerland is a Swiss RIO/Avantgarde trio which plays ver experimental kid of prog rock/experimental music based on Hammond organ (not classical sounding at all, extremely experimantal for me !!).  To be honest I've listened only to one of their album...and I didn't like it toomuch. I expected something a la ELP which it surely isn't. However I suppose RIO fans can be interested.
I don't know about this style too much but I'm sure this band should be included on PA. In fact they are really "too progressive" for my ears Wink.
 
line-up:
 
Dominik Blum (organ), Marino Pliakas (bass), Lucas Niggli (drums, percussion)

None of the samples there work for me (and I have my ADSL connection back now). There are also samples here: http://www.marinopliakas.com/mp3.html but they only play for a few seconds. Based on them I agree the ZART should evaluate this first. I'll ask them.

I've seen these guys live about 9 years ago. there was 10 people in the audience, six of them working for the club  owner.....  >> so only four entrance  and little more at the bar  >>> you can bet that the Steamboat never sailed in that area again .
 
drummer plays on one side of the stage, facing the would-be Emerson keyboardist and center-back stage is the bassist playing from behind his double tablature holder his handwritten book. the thing was rougly 75c; wide, so opened , he needed two holders....

I've listened to their "Wertmüller" (2005) and felt they should be a clear case for inclusion in RIO/Avant. Clap
If Teams need more of their samples, I'll send them soon. Wink
