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! 🙂

Wolf Codera Session Possible: awesome!

It’s been over 2 years since I last played at Wolf Codera Session Possible and so I was very happy when I got the call from Wolf Codera last December who said we wanted me again for one or two shows in early 2017. As we talked it became clear that I would not only be the bass player at that sessions but also the musical director at three gigs in three different locations.
That means I picked the musicians from my network, choose the songs from the vocalists repertoire, put together the setlist for each gig et cetera. The musicians I formed the band from without one exception had never played at a Session Possible before and so we were all pretty excited about it would work out. Actually it worked very well and the band played together as a great team so it was comfortable for the various vocalists to perform on top of it.
Each gig was a success and everybody was having a great time.
I want to say thank you to Wolf Codera who made it all possible 😉 and to

the band:
– Stephen Denbrock (drums)
– Stefan Kahne (guitar, vocals)
– Dario Karkovic (keyboards, vocals)
– Markus Zimmermann (keyboards, vocals)

the vocalists:
– Tamara Bencsik (the only singer singing at all three gigs)
– Mirjam von Eigen
– Viktoria Miller
– Tiffy Aris
– Rino Galiano
– Kieron

We all enjoyed it very much and we can’t wait to do that again.
Hope to see you all soon.
