“Many of our heroes, like Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith and Louis Jordan, started out with a black touring troupe called who used the Rabbit Foot in their name. Spasm bands in New Orleans in the 1890s made music out of homemade instruments, which is how we started out. The Original bit is a little homage to a whole host of early Jazz bands who stuck that at the front of their name. Kid Creole had his Dr Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band as well, and he was about as original as we are.”

THE LOCATION

2010 sees us in what can only be described as one of the most amazing festival location’s ever imagined. The abandoned fort, Punta Christo, was built in the eighteen hundreds and looks like something from a lost world. Located on a peninsular just across the bay from the city of Pula, this amazing setting will be transformed into the perfect venue for sun soaked daytime beach parties and on the water boat parties. When the sun sets however and the music makes its way into the fort Outlook Festival becomes an entirely different beast.
