Kal David and Lauri Bono

A pleasant surprise awaits music fans visiting the Mr Music Record Store in Münsterstrasse on Tuesday (from c. 5.30pm).  Kal David and Lauri Bono will be playing live from their excellent release ‘Paragon’.  When I say that the duo were in the band of Etta James and that Kal David replaced Mick Taylor as John Mayall’s guitarist (after Taylor left to join Bob Dylan)  then you will know the music will be good.  If you’ve visited the new Mr Music shop then you will also know the space will be limited!

Manfred Mann’s Earthband Competition

When people talk about longevity in the music business they could easily be referring to one ‘Man’ in particular:  Manfred Mann.  His first hit ‘54321’ was the theme to Britain’s pioneering pop programme ‘Ready Steady Go’ in 1964.  The Earth Band, put together in the early 70’s, had some major pop hits and is still performing to this very day with Mann and fellow founding member Mick Rogers.

3songsbonn.com is offering one lucky winner two places on the guest-list for the Manfred Mann Band’s concert at the City Forum in Euskirchen on 21 April.  To win, just send an email with subject ‘Manfred Mann Competition’ to the email address  3songsbonn@gmx.de  and answer the following question correctly: Name one hit of Manfred Mann’s Earthband that was written by Bruce Springsteen. If your’s is the first correct answer received you will be on the guestlist in Euskirchen with a friend.  Good Luck!

Top performers booked include trumpeter Nils Wülker, Nils Landgren (sporting a trademark red trombone!) and Grammy winning guitarist John Schofield

A ‘Gehimtipp’ for those who like a little Blues vocal in their Jazz is Julia Biel. Will she live up to the description:  “a perfect mixture of Billie Holiday, Björk, and Amy Winehouse”?  Go along to Haus der Geschichte on 5 May and find out.


Lyambiko is a popular performer here in Bonn too with a great soulful voice that 3songs saw in 2015.

Andreas Theobald Quartet

In 2017 pianist Andreas Theobald was to be heard at Bonn Main Station during the Jazztube Season.  Last November he was the support for ‘Confluence’ at the Pantheon and now he is headlining his own evening together with Argentinian Jazz singer Sabeth Perez.  A star on the rise is always worth a visit, so lets take it easy and relax before the weekend with some relaxing vibes at the Dottendorfer Jazznight.
