Info:

Rednex,

das sind Dagger, Joe Cagg, Ace Ratclaw und Mia Löfgren, sowie weitere später ins Projekt aufgenommene Mitglieder.

Sie gehören zu den wenigen Künstlern, die sich in den vergangenen fast 20 Jahren immer wieder durch Chartplatzierungen haben durchsetzen können - mit mehr als 10 Millionen verkauften Platten und dutzenden TOP 10 Hits erreichten Rednex, was niemand anderem bislang in den deutschen Charts gelungen ist: REDNEX sind die ausdauerndsten Amtsinhaber des 1. Platzes in den deutschen Single-Charts seit 1980 - insgesamt 25 Wochen dominierten sie diese (Modern Talking belegt den 2. Platz in dieser Liste mit 19 Wochen).

Gleich die erste Single im Jahr 1994 „Cotton Eye Joe“ entwickelte sich zum Partyklassiker und wird noch heute auf unzähligen Parties gefeiert, weltweite Top Platzierungen und No. 1 in 15 Ländern!!

Im Jahr 2011 blickt die Band auf 17 vergangene Jahre, mit Welterfolgen, die jeder kennt, zurück: „Spirit Of The Hawk“ (2000), „Cotton Eye Joe“, „Old Pop In An Oak“ (1995) oder „Wish You Were Here“ (1995).

41 Goldene Platten, 6-mal Dreifachplatin in Deutschland, 6 No. 1 Hits in Deutschland, 10 aufeinander folgende Top-40 Hits sowie u.a. den RSH Award für den meistgespielten Radiosong in Deutschland in den 90er-Jahren.

Im Sommer 2008 landeten Rednex mit „Football is Our Religion“ einen weiteren Nummer Hit in Schweden. Zurzeit arbeiten die vier an einer neuen Single, die nicht mehr lange auf sich warten lassen wird. 

Insbesondere in den zurückgebliebenen 3 Jahren erlebt das Projekt eine revolutionäre Entwicklung bei den europäischen Festivals, dies bestätigt eine hohe Booking-Quote.

Das bisherige Highlight war sicherlich der Auftritt Silvester 2015/2016 vor 750.000 Zuschauern in Berlin LIVE vom ZDF übertragen.
