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!

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

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

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!
