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!

My first time at NAMM

I have to admit that I’m getting a bit excited now:
tomorrow morning I’m flying to Los Angeles to be at the NAMM with Markbass / Markbass Germany for the first time ever and I’m sure it’s gonna be exciting!
So if you are attending, come by and visit me at the Markbass booth hall D #5044 or send me a message if you want to hang after the show, go to a session or whatever.
Looking forward seeing you!

Markbass Germany on Facebook

As you possibly know as an Markbass artist I’ve been enthusiastically using gear by that great company for 12 years now. When you are using their products too or you want to be informed about what’s going on and you are fluent in German, please like the Markbass Germany page to become part of the community. Of course you are free to like the page if you are not fluent in German, but the posts there are in German 😉
Thanks!

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!

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

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!
