Císař Band is a jazz-blues quartet made up of great young musicians. The leader is charismatic singer and double bass player, Jan Císař. Rock was his main interest in the beginning and for many years he played bass guitar in different bands.
His interest in the blues was sparked by listening to records by Peter Green, Johnny Winter, and other r&b bands. Jan then decided to switch to double bass. He performed for several years as a blues duo and travelled around Europe as a trio with The Riverside Blues Band. His great sense of swing can change any band into a steaming boiler of blues.

The Jazz and Blues Club Ungelt is located in the 1000 year old Romanesque vault. The Ungelt courtyard was founded in the 11th century. Its name is derived from the very purpose of the building - every foreign merchant coming to Prague had to pay a fee to the royal treasury, i. e. ungelt.
The court was also called the "Hilarious Court" by the locals for merchants used to hold noisy parties here. The court is right behind the Týn Church breathing the captivating atmosphere of Prague Old Town.
The club features top Prague jazz concerts, focusing mainly on jazz, blues, funk and fusion. Top Czech and foreign jazz bands with excellent soloists are on the program every night. You can stay until 1 am enjoying the illuminated Týn Church and the Clock Tower on Old Town Square on your way back.
