We are happy to announce that after a long search we have added Cord Rehren to the line-up who will be replacing Julius Ramge as our second guitarist. Cord is best known as the owner of Hamburgs finest vintage record store Slam Records and thereby has been involved for decades in shaping the Hamburg music scene… to paraphrase Ziggy Stardust: …and boy can he play guitar!
Julius of course remains with us as Lee’s trusted guitar tech a job he has had since 2009.
Due to scheduling conflicts Marc Balance and David Mautz will be giving their last performance as the main rhythm section on the 19th of March in Bremen. Marc will continue as a substitute or “sub” bassist and David will continue to support the project as a multi-instrumentalist but sadly their tenure as rhythm section par-excellence will soon come to a close.
The good news is that drummer Manuel Beutke and bassist Hubert Steiner have joined up and made their spectacular debut as the new main rhythm section this past week (march 5th) in Bergedorf…. (see fan-snapshot!)
Manuel Beutke is best known for his work with high energy punk band The Detectors and teaches drumming in Hamburg.
Hubert Steiner is a bassist/guitarist from Munich who is known for his Carpetband and Instrument projects and he also provides 4 string support for Thees Uhlmann…
We will continue to audition drummers and bassist’s for the 4 “sub” positions we have open….
