Giannis never stopped being relevant and managed to make his mark with every new release he created by trying new things and experimenting with new styles. His new record with the 100°C, called “Exo Kefia”, is out on the 6th of May, while the first single “Akoma, Perpataw” quickly became the talk of the town.
100°C are: Labrini Grigoriadou (acoustic guitar), Alexis Arxontis (drums), Giorgos Avramidis (trumpet), Hlias Baglanis (keyboards) and the newest members, Alexandros Kontzoglou (electric guitar) and Michalis Karanikos (trombone). Giorgos Taxtsidis and Mimis Kwnstantinidis are the sound engineers.

Pavlos Pavlidis is behind some of the most beautiful songs of the Greek music scene, from his early days with Xylina Spathia, to his equally great solo career that started almost 20 years ago. As a gifted songwriter and singer, Pavlidis played a special part in the whole local, rock scene, and with his personal style pretty much defined a whole era in a way that very few musicians could possibly do.
Now, with his new band, Holel Alaska, will take over the stage at Plateia Nerou with an updated set with songs from his great career, starting from Xylina Spathia up until his recent record, “To Mauro Kouti” that came out last December.
Hotel Alaska are: Fotis Siotas (violin, loops), Dimitris Tsekouras (bass), Giorgos Theodoropoulos (keyboards) and Thanos Mixailidis (drums).
