We are all Musical- Actors and sang in different Musicals, thats how we met! Our passion is volksmusic with a modern style. So we mix the traditional Music from the Alps with fresh modern beats! When we are on Stage, you can see five Boys in Lederhosen dancing and singing. People say: Boygroup from the Alps.

Well, voXXclub exists for 5 years now. We have become known with a flashmob in the mall on Youtube.

Beside making videos, we are all together on tour and doing concerts all over germany, swizerland and austria. At the moment we just released our 4th album.
We were nominated for each album for the biggest german music award, the ECHO. Last year we had more than 40 TV-Shows in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Also we travelled to Brazil, Italy, Slovenia, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg to sing and have gigs.

The ESC spreads a very importent message to the world, that music can unite us beyond borders. No matter who you are or where you come from, everyone can be themselves! A very beautiful message!
