“Throwback Tuesday” :-) A Music Night Out with Friends from Augsburg


Kind of reminiscing a nice night out with friends from Augsburg, mostly band mates of my buddy Dietmar Liehr, who’s accomplished a very appreciated reputation for himself. On bass Oliver Bosch, on drums Christopher Zeise,on vocals and percussion Maximilian Roth Quintero Heldberg, on sax Oliver Weißmann and yours truly on guitar.

Hope, you’ll enjoy this.
