The Rockhouse is an event hall in the Salzburg district of Schallmoos at the foot of the Kapuzinerberg. The building was originally used as an ice cellar and wine store. After extensive renovations in the early 1990s, the Rockhouse was opened as an event location. The house is run by the Rockhouse Salzburg association.
The house was built in 1842 by Joseph and Elise Gansl. Part of the structure, including the vaults, still dates from this time. In the 1980s, a discussion began about the deficits in Salzburg´s cultural landscape: no infrastructure, too few opportunities to perform, no rehearsal rooms, no adequate funding in the music scene, and no concerts by interesting international bands due to the lack of a stage. From this discussion the Pro-Ton association was founded, which in 1985 received a unanimous opinion from the cultural committee of the Salzburg municipal council for its rockhouse project.
In 1990 the local council decided unanimously to convert today´s Rockhouse Salzburg. Wolfgang Descho and Michl Matschedolnig were in charge of creating the concept, and in 1991 the Rockhouse concept and the renovation plans were presented. The Rockhouse was finally opened on 10/14/1993, and Wolfgang Descho is the managing director of the Rockhouse Salzburg.
In cooperation with the regional broadcasters FS1 and Radiofabrik, the Rockhouse publishes the TV format Local Heroes - Rockhouse and the radio series Radio Rockhouse.
And here are my "rock"-editions of the week:

Bryan Adams - This Time David Bowie - Modern Love Huey Lewis & The News - Heart And Soul Rod Stewart - What Am I Gonna Do Talking Heads - Burning Down The House
Time for an extra: Hot Chocolate
1969 was a great year: The first man walked on the moon and the hippies celebrated Woodstock. At the same time, three guest workers and party stallions with Caribbean blood decided to found a pop band somewhere in the London ghetto district of Brixton. Not a bad starting point: the rhythmic potential of the Antilles gathered in one band. The only thing missing was a suitable voice until later in 1969 Errol Brown (Jamaican) found the band. He put the finishing touches to the band´s sound with his soulful timbre and distinctive skinhead. Hot Chocolate´s international breakthrough came in 1974 with the title "Emma", the story of a hopeful young mime who, despite her talent, remains unsuccessful and ultimately takes this as an opportunity to take her own life. The song reached #8 in the USA and was later sung several times by other bands (including The Sisters of Mercy and Urge Overkill). In 1981, at the height of their success, Hot Chocolate played at the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana. A year later the single "Girl Crazy" was released:
from my musical category "daydreamer" My motto: "Not always the often heard hits."
"Music was my first love and it will be my last ... ´cause in this world of troubles my music pulls me through."
(from 1976: John Miles and The Alan Parsons Project with "Music")
