Best friends “Frau Thomas” Tom Neuwirth - better known as Eurovision Song Contest winner Conchita Wurst - and “Herr Martin” Zerza have created a German-language program inspired by artists such as Hildegard Knef, Erika Pluhar, Edith Piaf, Cissy Kraner and Helge Schneider.

They have cherry-picked from the diverse pool of artistic styles and forms of expression, composed and written their own songs and are now bringing them to the stages of Austria (and Germany). They are accompanied by their three-piece band “Die Pralinen”, which consists of first-class musicians and, together with the two frontmen, delivers an evening of exquisite live quality.

Frau Thomas & Herr Martin present a variety of genres such as chanson, Wienerlied, Latin, swing, jazz and Schlager, which they bring together in their live performances to create a rousing variety program.

The entertaining and perceptive songs reflect everyday life, lifestyles and encounters with other people. The lyrics range from humorous to thought-provoking and are all characterized by a wink and a portion of concentrated joie de vivre.

“A Gaudi muss sein” (en: "It has to be fun!") is the formation's motto, and the central idea is to spend a fun-filled evening with first-class German-language entertainment, where the audience laughs along with the artists and can experience the relaxed atmosphere up close and personal, and ideally live off it for a long time.
