Petr Wajsar founded the HI-FI band back in 2002. The bands style can primarily be described as  electronic dance with a jazz fusion, but their songs don't stick to conventional genres and so also include a mixture of hip-hop, reggae, techno and drum´n´bass, all played live from both their on stage instruments, electronic equipment and drum machines. The bands repertoire comprises it's own original lyrics in Czech and English including wordplay, rap and beatbox to add to their unique sound. Most of this repertoire are original songs, but jazz standards in dance and other arrangements can be included – depending on the venue.  The band has performed throughout the Czech Republic, including Colours of Ostrava, Rock for People, Trutnov open air and Vinyl Cup  festivals and also at such clubs as Cross, Malostranská beseda in Prague, Stará pekárna in Brno or Temple in Ostrava. Along with this, Hi-Fi's songs have also appeared on Radio 1's playlist. This has all led to the band recently winning two major contests, Boom Cup in Ostrava and Starter Live in Prague.
