All of those who love retro pop-rock, Americana sound and garage rock’n’roll – under no circumstance mustn’t miss this year’s 15th jubilee edition of the Street Musicians Festival, more precisely: the festival performances of Belgrade’s VIS Limunada (Vocal And Instrumental Ensemble Lemonade) and the rock band from Rijeka My Buddy Moose in the center of Novi Sad, on stage at the Catholic Courtyard.

Love towards 50s and 60s tunes, the twist and Latin swirls, retro dresses and oldie suits and fabulous hairstyles – that’s what you need for VIS Limunada! Not only do their concerts resemble the rock dance halls which we saw in some old, romantic films, but they revitalize and resonate the spirit of the carefree youths of the Nifty Fifties and Groovy Sixties.

The guys and girls from VIS Limunada sing in several languages and are calling their musical preference The Old Wave. Their current hit single is named Rame uz rame (Shoulder To Shoulder), accompanied by a beautiful video bursting with atmosphere from the old dance-offs and musical TV shows. With this EP VIS Limunada announced their first studio album, which is due to be released this autumn.

Four men strong and from Rijeka, the band My Buddy Moose – active more than ten years and with three highly rated studio albums – will present to the festival audience just how successful a fusion of garage rock, punk, soul and country can be. Of course, most grateful will certainly be the fans of the Americana sound.

“In Rijeka live some guys who make sensationally beautiful music”, wrote the popular Croatian journalist and writer Ante Tomić, referring to the members of My Buddy Moose, the band gladly listened to and always warmly welcomed in Novi Sad. You might say that the young Croatian rockers – who had performances in front of audiences in Liverpool and London – found their strongest fan base right here in the capital city of Vojvodina!
