Bromo – Munsterplatz

If you missed ‘Brother Movement aka Bromo at Munsterplatz on Saturday performing, amongst other material in an enjoyable set, ‘Englishman in New York’ then here’s some good news – some pictures from the set are available HERE.
Even better news for fans of the twins is that you can catch them again in Bonn Centre on Saturday as a part of the Stadtmusik 2017 live event at 3 pm on Friedensplatz.

Music – Open Air and Free!

Sophie Grobler/Bill Baum

This should be an excellent weekend for getting  some fresh air if you live in the Bonn area and enjoy live music.

The Stadtgarten Concerts on the Alten Zoll have just begun and Saturday features a collaboration with Jazz Tube that sees The Alex Wünsche Trio and Luciel (featuring Sophie Grobler pictured above).  Start 7pm. Details HERE

Sunday it’s the only chance to catch a whole show of Blues on the Bundeskunsthalle roof this year as local Blues heroes Baum’s Bluesbenders will be appearing as part of the General Anzeiger Sommergarten Season..  Rumour has it that Mr Baum will be bringing a rare electric Waldzither to the show.  With or without zither it will be a great show I’m sure (11.30 am to 2.30 pm)

Concert Calendar for Bonn


Many thanks to Stefanie Kellner for permission to add her excellent calendar of music events in Bonn to this website (see the left hand links) If you are appearing in, or promoting for, a musical event here in the Bonn area then you can also use the calendar to add your own event.

Despite every care concerts are very often frail creatures that can be moved, start earlier, be postponed or even wiped completely from Gods’s Earth – so neither Stefanie or 3songsbonn hold themselves responsible for errors, omissions or changes.  Otherwise, I hope the calendar will help keep track of the many things happening here in Bonn.
Check back regularly!

Max is Alright at the last Kunst!Garten

Lots of happy faces, children playing, people laughing, eating and drinking on a warm and sunny Summer evening.  So why do I feel sad?  Because it’s the last time they will be doing this down between the lake and the Kunst!Rasen.  There is music from Westerwald band Max is Alright to lift my spirits though and a spirit of ‘Carry On regardless’ that by evening’s, and venues end where the Kunst!Garten is concerned, makes me feel a bit more optimistic.

New Jazz Tube – New Website in English

Eagle eyed readers will have noticed that the links to click on to the right of this screen once again include the Jazz Tube logo.  Further good news for Jazz fans and English speakers this week is that, in celebration of starting it’s sixth year next week (5 August), Jazz Tube now has an English version of it’s website online.  It’s particularly appropriate given the international nature of the music on offer which, as Founder and co-presenter Thomas Kimmerle, explains  “ is underlined by the musician Waldemar Lezckowski from Bonn who is performing with a 5-member formation from 4 different nations at this year’s JazzTube.  Flutist Morgana Moreno, a student of the Bonn musician Michael Heupel and now living in Rotterdam, will take the audience with Brazilian sounds from her home country in the southern globe”. 

Bookended by a showcase concert at Alten Zoll  to start, and a three day showcase Festival at the Pantheon Theatre to finish, Jazz Tube 2017 promises to be bigger and better than ever.

Saturday, Summer and Bonn


Always worth keeping an ear open in the hope of good music when shopping.

Today I came across these two young gentlemen, Tobias and Michal aka ‘Al Son de la Sombra’ brightening up the Markplatz with their classical guitars and gentle rhythms.  Under the watchful eye of Ludwig of course!
