Fans of Quimby, we have awesome news today: the smash hits like Most múlik pontosan, Autó a szerpentinen, and Cuba Lunatica will be played-a-live on the final of the 22th Wine Festival and Dóm Square Festival. Hungary’s favourite music band is coming to Szeged, on the 21st of May!
Quimby is an alternative rock band popular on the Hungarian music scene. Enjoying large crowds across the nation, they have had successes at music festivals such as the Sziget Festival. Together for over 25 years, the band has a large collection of studio albums and one live CD/DVD combo to their credit. The band originated in the industrial town of Dunaújváros under the name ‘Oktober’, playing covers. By the end of high school, the band dispersed. The Kiss brothers, Tibor and Endre, got another group together in 1991, and renamed it ‘Quimby’.
In 2006 the band reached the 15-year milestone. Quimby celebrated this special jubilee by publishing a greatest hits recording and DVD called Family Tugedör. They also gave a double concert in the Katona József Theatre, one in the Petőfi Csarnok venue and a concert on 1 January 2007 called “Magic Music”. The work continues with two releases in 2009, an EP (Ajjajjaj) and a full length album (Lármagyűjtögető).
