Love Lives On – Dana Fuchs

Never afraid to wear her heart on her sleeve – regular Harmonie visitor Dana Fuchs has just released a video to accompany ‘Love Lives On’ from her new disc of the same name.  Despite being about Dana’s last few days spent with her dying mother it’s a positive song “Fostering hope that our love lives on in our hearts and memories, and helps us to persevere in the life we keep living.”
A moving song from one of the best voices in modern Rock.

Music in the Park (Bad Godesberg) 2018

It began in 1977 and at it’s best attracted some 3000 people (as in 1992’s visit by Brings) early visitors were Wolfgang Niedecken with BAP.

2018’s Musik im Park at Bad Godesberg‘s pavilion has a promising mix of acts and all for free (but please fill the hat at the end!)

Milene

A new interpretation of the Classic Beatle’s ‘White’ Album is being offered for those with classic Pop taste. Younger music lovers should give a listen to Milene – a young lady highly rated by the legendary Udo Lindenberg no less.  Jazz fans are catered for with the Beethoven Musikschule, and no Bad Godesberg Music evening would be quite complete without solid Blues from Bill Baum and his Bluesbenders.

The ALmighty Stacie Collins

Judging by the disappointing turnout a lot of you who witnessed Stacie Collins at past Harmonie shows will have missed this one.  I have bad news for you people – you missed the best show yet.  A teaspoonful of Country, a tablespoonful of Rock and a bucketful of Boogie.  If Stacie and her ‘ALmighty Three’ band (headed by husband Al) were disappointed at the number of faces staring back at them come eight o’clock then they certainly didn’t show it.

Concert Tip – Elise LeGrow

Canadian singer/songwriter Elise LeGrow has just released her first full CD.  Titled ‘Playing Chess’ it’s an excellent collection of better and lesser known songs from Chess Records delivered with LeGrange’s rich vocal delivery.  A fine RnB/Soul debut in fact.
You can sample the CD live on Sunday (6 May) when LeGrow plays at the Kantine/Yardclub in Cologne.  Recommended!

Ana Popovic coming to Bonn

Family affair in Cologne as Ana shares the stage with her father Milton

It’s been awhile since her last appearance here but Ana Popovic is back in Bonn for a concert at the Harmonie on 20 November.

Billed as a ‘Blues Lovers Night’ it should be just that as Ana brings her experience living in America and appearances with greats like Buddy Guy and Kenny Wayne Shepherd in addition to the magical guitar playing that first entranced me back in 2005 at the Blues Caravan.

The picture above shows a band at one of my favorite gigs of last year.  Edinburgh Bluesrockers The Blueswater played a sweaty but glorious set at Kult41.  The good news is that the Band will be returning to that very venue on 3 June.  A don’t miss for all good-time RnB fans!  More details HERE
