After his successful debut on the Alpana label, Karl Schmidt set up his own company with his “Fodor” label in the early 1990s. The “Karl Schmidt Big Band” was founded in 1986. Since then, the band had not only thrilled competitive couples and ball guests with excellent dance music at a strict pace, but also shines with variably rhythmic pop songs with an almost cheerful exhilaration. The “Karl Schmidt Big Band” is known for its stylistic openness. In the past ten years, she has proven through numerous productions that pop music, which is characterized by electronics, through tasteful arrangements in modern big band sound, is highly recognized in specialist circles and inspires the audience again and again.
