Lukas, The Traveling Piano Man
"Playing the piano and singing those old songs is my life!
A day spend without playing music is a wasted day for me..."
Born and raised in Austria, self taught Boogie-Woogie pianist Lukas Koeninger discovered his passion for music at the age of 17 when he accidently came across some LP records of Vince Weber, Axel Zwingenberger and
Jerry Lee Lewis.
Gifted with talent and patience and without any musical background he taught himself piano and began to explore the world of piano Blues, Boogie-Woogie and Rock'n'Roll.
With his move to southern France in 2015 he decided to realise his long-time dream and built his own traveling Boogie-Piano which makes him the only traveling boogie pianist of France and opened up the way to a career as a street performer. Since then he travels trough parts of Europe with his project "StreetBoogieWoogie" and brings stomping rythms and swinging melodies to his audiences. He also performs at various festivals such as the Laroquebrou Blues & Boogie, Jazz Pourpre, Douchapt Blues and many others. In 2019 his first studio album "My Plan B(oogie)" was released and album number two is already in work and scheduled for late spring 2021.
