Starting a steady gig in my hometown soon!

I’m really looking forward to it and I’m so excited because it starts soon and therefore I can not keep it to myself any longer:
from April on there will be a regular live music event in a beautiful location right in the heart of Bingen, the Geniesserei Alte Wache!
Who else beside me will be part of the house and and how the concept looks exactly I may not yet betrayed. What I can already say is that there has never been such a thing in Bingen and surroundings, that it is unique in the region and that the event is called “Spätschicht”.
If you are getting excited too please tell your friends, spread the news about and mark the 21st of March in your calendar because that’s the day of the big kick-off event of “Spätschicht”. More news about that will be coming up soon! 🙂

Back from NAMM

Since a little more than a week I’m back from NAMM.
It’s been my first time and it’s been an awesome time! Meeting so many amazing musicians from all over the world and hanging with my Markbass / Markbass Germany family, meeting old friends and making new ones was fantastic!
Check out some pictures I took here.

I’m already looking forward to see you there again next year!

Great show with Century’s Crime

It was an awesome experience playing a show with Century’s Crime in front of so many true Supertramp fans last Saturday. They did not only know all the lyrics, some of them even could sing the part of certain instruments along 🙂 Check out our Facebook page and make sure to see us perform live next time! band-1

True Collins Live Video

I’m a founding member and bass player of TRUE COLLINS, Germany’s most authentic Phil Collins and Genesis tribute band. Since 10 years I’ve been playing a lot of great shows with this fantastic band and will continue doing so. Our latest promotion video (live) gives you an impression on what our shows are like. I hope you enjoy it!

9 out of 11

This is how I love it: in the end of June I played 9 shows within 11 days from Calw in southern Germany to Kiel in the very northern part of Germany. This meant about 2.500 km and long hours on the road but although it meant a lot of fun and great moments on stage with TRUE COLLINS, Miss Kavila and Traumbild, a new German pop act that I’m on promotion tour with currently.
The highlight for me was the True Collins show feat. The Brass-Connection at the end of this “tour” in my home area. Now I take a break from gigs until next Saturday…

Hope to see you soon!

Mariam Michael’s live debut

Last Tuesday we had a little gig with Mariam Michael & Band at the Orange Peel, Frankfurt.
We played to promote her debut single “Hot’n Tasty” which is available for download on iTunes and other major download platforms.

The response we got from the audience that night and later on is very promising and we are motivated to take the next steps…

Another appearance on German television

On Sunday May 17th I once again had the great pleasure to be a part of the backing band for Tom Gaebel and for Thomas Anders as well. Together with a bunch of very nice colleagues I had a lot of fun at these 2 appearances on the Sunday morning live open air TV-show called Fernsehgarten .

Happy Prosperous New Year!

When I look back at 2014 I am happy to say that again it was a great year!
Therefore I want to thank all the nice people I met and worked with, ether on stage or off stage, all the great artists I had the pleasure to share the stage with,
my friends and all the people who support me in living my life as a musician. Even without mentioning names you sure know who you are 🙂
Although I made some experiences that were not so nice, but they are a part of the growing process, too.
Beside this I want to say thanks to the companies who make the equipment that I love to use.
So let’s make 2015 a awesome year!

Happy Prosperous New Year!
Happy New Year!
