For more than 10 years Poker Alice has been a part of the European music scene. The band impresses with their catchy, melodic music and the unique mix of rock, pop and folk. Through the years the hard-working group produced five studio albums and numerous radio singles. Usually a "best-of" album would follow but the five musicians from Poker Alice have never done what the rest of the world does next. This is true with their new album 'Treasures'. The long player includes treasures from past years as well as some new surprises. All songs have one thing in common; they have never been released on an album before. Poker Alice is a head strong band. They didn't want to pursue a record deal. They preferred to be their own record label bosses and founded the label 'Get A Grip' in 2006 for one good reason; If you are your own boss you can do whatever you want to. And what the band wants is clear as soon as you see them live on stage. Poker Alice is full of power, energy and the band knows how to put the audience under their spell. The music is honest, direct and the band members authentic. It's clear to see: this is the real deal! Poker Alice is a strong presence with René Hunziker (drums) and Dieter Senn (bass) as the pulsating heart of the band. Ivan (guitars) and Charlie Midnite (songwriter, guitars) are the electrifying adrenalin. Monika Schär (vocals) intoxicates with her powerful, expressive, soulful and multi faceted voice. Music stars come and go Poker Alice is here to stay. The band goes it's way and doesn't care about the moody business. The self-confident band always plans several steps in advance and already has a new iron in the fire. A live album as well as a live DVD will be released in 2009 both in a special style as the band itself and totally different from any other productions. This is Poker Alice; Individual and non compromising.
