True Collins feat. The Brass Connection

Although True Collins has received a lot of compliments for his authentic live sound and has been called the most authentic Phil Collins and Genesis tribute band in Germany by many critics, we always knew that a horn section is the missing piece to make the band sound even more authentic.

René Moreno Band

Since September I’m the new bass player of the René Moreno Band. The music is quite different from what I used to do most of the time and maybe you can describe it as something like “Reggae-Latin-Dirty-Highgloss-Funk-Pop” 🙂 It’s definitely a lot of fun to play and for me it’s a step in the afro-cubanContinue reading “René Moreno Band”
