Our name and history

The name Nápoje means “beverages” and it originated from the name of a small pub in Smíchov (quarter in Prague). 
Today the pub is called “U Sokolovny”, but the previous euphonic term Nápoje sticked to the group of musicians 
playing originally there (1999).

Characteristics

The music band reflects hidden spirit of jazz in Prague pubs on the left side of the river Vltava 
(quarters Smíchov, Košíře, Břevnov). Its creative charge reflects the unstable life philosophy of middle class 
inhabitants in these quarters at the beginning of new millennium. 
Another important source of the artist Nápoje tension is the fact that almost all the members work or worked 
in the large hospital of Motol, of course, with all possible psychological consequences. 
The amateur feature of the band intensifies reality of its civil face, confronting the surrounding enviroment
by means of music. We mix beers with jazz songs to produce the desirable extatic atmosphere and to wash off 
the everydays gray dust from our Czech souls.
