Excuse Me Moses is an Austrian rock band from Vienna. They competed in the Austrian selection process for the Eurovision Song Contest 2011, just narrowly missing out on a spot in the final, after coming 11th in the Online Selection, with the song "Way Out".

Band story


The band was formed in 2000[1] under the name Funkalicious. They produced the EP Deduction in 2002 and released their album Perfekta in 2004 which shortly appeared on #42[2] in the Austrian charts. They didn't reach a broad audience with their Funk rock music style. After Gerhard Bergauer had left the band in May 2005, Martin Scheer appeared at the drums. Funkalicious redefined themselves as Excuse Me Moses and emphasized their style on rock music.

Excuse Me Moses

In 2005 the band took part in the Ö3 Soundcheck band contest arranged by the Austrian radio station Hitradio Ö3. They reached third place. In the course of the promotion of the band contest, the band played as a warm-up at a concert of Bon Jovi and Nickelback in Innsbruck in May 2006. Excuse Me Moses signed a record contract and released their single Summer Sun which reached #33[3] in Austria. Some months later their second single Not In Love Anymore came out, but it was no success.

Excuse Me Moses released their first album 1st Last Will in June 2007, climbing up to #13[4] in the Austrian album charts. In this time they also had a third single called Butterfly Tree/Vital Signs, reaching #20[5] in the single charts.

In the same month they performed their largest gigs at the Austrian Nova Rock festival and the Vienna Donauinselfest.
