A combination of letters that tells connoisseurs that indoor
there will be combined between number combinations and money.
Casino Montreux – a place which holds a lot of history
in this prominent building, located on the edge of Lac Leman.

That history of the place is much older than the buildings.
Originally built in the 1880s – besides casino also the focal point for music and movies.
Montreux Jazz Festival
Montreux Film Festival
Name the most famous jazz musicians and the greatest rock bands
They have all played here several times.

A Frank Zappa concert in 1971 went wrong when a spectator fired a signal gun
in the middle of the concert, the building burned to the ground.
The reconstruction was done 3-4 years later.

Several musicians have made live recordings here.

The song “Smoke on the Water” by english rock group Deep Purple is about the incident.

      Good old Frank Zappa “started” or his concert do – a history which include a lot of music including “Smoke on the water” – so glad you found the story interesting.

  1. Love Deep Purple, and this song. Never saw this version before. Thank you!
    I knew Smoke on the Water was about the fire, but not that it happened at a Zappa concert. Very interesting.
