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!

I joined a new band!

I’m very happy to announce that I’m the bass provider of the just founded Supertramp Tribute Band called Century’s Crime.
Although the band was born only a few weeks ago we will play the first show already on July 3rd and a bunch of more shows are confirmed by now. Please check the growing list of dates on the frequently website and see us perform all the timeless hits like Dreamer, School, Breakfast in America, Goodbye Stranger, It’s Raining Again, The Logical Song and many more.

At the London Bass Guitar Show with Schack Guitars

On March 12 & 13 the London Bass Guitar Show took place the Olympia London, organized by the Bass Guitar Magazine.
I was there with Nico Schack from Schack Guitars as exhibitor and we had a fantastic time there!
It was great to meet so many outstanding bass players on one spot and the feedback from them on our basses was beyond expectations. I’d like to thank everyone who visited us on our booth and special thanks to everyone involved at the Bass Guitar Magazine for organizing this great event! We will be back next year!
Here you find some pictures of our stand…

THE GROOVE COLLECTIVE

THE GROOVE COLLECTIVE – That’s the name of my new musical project.
I put together this club- and event-band from musicians who I’ve been playing with here and there for years and who are on top of my personal favorites. I’m very happy that they answered my call to form the regular band together with me on bass that will be extended by singers and other professional musicians, depending on what the actual show requires. „Like“ the Facebook page now to be with us from the beginning and ensure to not miss anything. More news coming up very soon.. Logo The Groove Collective_light_on_dark_hq

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!

You Groove – They Move…

Shortly before the bass event “Feel The Bass” that Schack attended in October, I created a slogan for a shirt that Nico Schack had designed. The slogan I liked the best is my definition of the Groove: You Groove – They Move. You Don’t – They won’t.
It may sound simple, but to me this is the essence of what Groove is about. I’m pretty sure a lot of you musicians agree to that, especially bass players 😉

If you want to show your passion for the groove get your shirt for just 19,90 € (M-XXL, free postage & shipping within Germany, international orders: terms of delivery on request, varies by country). To place your order just send an email to info@schack-guitars.de

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 .

Musikmesse 2015

In the middle of April it was time for Musikmesse in Frankfurt again. For me the MarkWorld/Markbass – booth has been the place to be for many years. Like the years before I had a great time there meeting old friends and making new friends as well. You find some photos from the booth here.Thanks for visiting me and for checking out the new Markbass products. I hope to see you all again there next year!Jörg Musikmesse 2015
