Hedreich Nichols

Gary Scott Band

Lausanne, get ready

Well folks, 6 down 2 to go. Zürich’s 6 sold out shows were the biggest and best ever, shortly to be repeated in Lausanne. And if you were one of the lucky few to have been at the VIP after parties, you could just feel the celebration. Hedreich along with Tanja Dankner, Lesley Bogaert and the Gary Scott Band kept the party in high gear and the music went “on and on till the break of dawn”! More soon…

Singing with the Gary Scott Band

And in case you’d rather dance than sing, Hedreich is singing with a 10 piece band led by New Yorker Gary Scott. They’ve been playing at Seedam Plaza’s Event Dome where the dance floor has been constantly packed.

And in January they’ll be playing with Daniel Powter at this year’s Art On Ice in Zürich’s Hallenstadion. Afterwards they’ll be rocking the house at the VIP parties so the ice skaters and fans can dance till they drop—or until self-imposed curfews take them away from the glamour of the evening.

Art On Ice 2008

After the first all-nighter of the year, our Artist enjoyed a couple of bars of rests before gearing up for the 2008 Art on Ice performances, again with Gary and an international band including Swiss vocalist Lesley Bogart. “Working with Lesley was something I really enjoyed at last year’s Art on Ice so I was really looking forward to singing with her this time,” recalls Hedreich.

One of the evening’s highlights was their hot cover of Gloria Estefan’s “Wrapped” which drew great applause and brought Salsa dancers to their feet.The 3 evenings were par-tay par-tay with lots of guests up on stage. Romain Gazave, Kim Wilde, choreographer Marvin A. Smith with his sizzling dance compadres and even the organizers all joined the band for fun highlights.

On the final evening, Hedreich set the crowd on fire with her smoking renditions of Proud Mary and Natural Woman. And talk about hot, the guests were enthralled by Hedreich’s fiery, spontaneous dance number with Switzerland’s premier ice skater Stéphane Lambiel. The world and European champion is as magical on the dance floor as on the ice and our girl showed that—with microphone in hand–she had a few magic moves of her own! In case you missed it live or on Swiss TV, have a look back at the first February issue of the Swiss Illustrated. You’ll see our artist on a 2 page spread in full swing with the Swiss crown prince of the ice!! Check out the pics:

Melting the Snow

This year began in snowy luxury at the 5 Star Arlberg Hospiz in Austria. The sounds coming off the stage were so hot they could have transformed St. Christoph’s winter wonderland into a Jamaican “get-your-groove-back” beach party. The Gary Scott band featuring Hedreich on vocals kept the dance floor full as the Austrian glitterati partied in ball gowns and cutaways until the wee hours.
