InEar StageDiver 2

Yesterday I picked up my brand new in ear monitors at the headquarter of the German company called InEar. I got their StageDiver 2 model that has perfectly tuned drivers for bass, middle and high tones and I really love them!
They are so comfortable to wear and fit so nicely and beside this they sound fantastic!

London Bass Guitar Show with Schack Guitars

On March 4th & 5th I was at the London Bass Guitar Show again with Schack Guitars. Although the show has grown from last year in every aspect it still has a very nice vibe and a family atmosphere.
Visitors’ interest in our instruments was enormous and we good very positiv feedback on our basses from some world class player. So for Schack Guitars it was a big success.
I personally had a great time meeting and hanging out with a lot of friends, old and new ones, and meet some of my bass heroes.
This video should give you an short impression on what was going on there.

I’m already looking forward to the London Bass Guitar Show in 2018 and it would be a pleasure meeting
you there.
Cheers,
Joerg

Wolf Codera Session Possible: awesome!

It’s been over 2 years since I last played at Wolf Codera Session Possible and so I was very happy when I got the call from Wolf Codera last December who said we wanted me again for one or two shows in early 2017. As we talked it became clear that I would not only be the bass player at that sessions but also the musical director at three gigs in three different locations.
That means I picked the musicians from my network, choose the songs from the vocalists repertoire, put together the setlist for each gig et cetera. The musicians I formed the band from without one exception had never played at a Session Possible before and so we were all pretty excited about it would work out. Actually it worked very well and the band played together as a great team so it was comfortable for the various vocalists to perform on top of it.
Each gig was a success and everybody was having a great time.
I want to say thank you to Wolf Codera who made it all possible 😉 and to

the band:
– Stephen Denbrock (drums)
– Stefan Kahne (guitar, vocals)
– Dario Karkovic (keyboards, vocals)
– Markus Zimmermann (keyboards, vocals)

the vocalists:
– Tamara Bencsik (the only singer singing at all three gigs)
– Mirjam von Eigen
– Viktoria Miller
– Tiffy Aris
– Rino Galiano
– Kieron

We all enjoyed it very much and we can’t wait to do that again.
Hope to see you all soon.

Special thanks to Filippo and the whole crew who did an awesome job and make me feel very comfortable. Hope to see you again next year!
