Sunny Skies & Jazz

Sunny Skies & Maya Fadeeva will be brightening up the weekend in Bonn

This weekend has two special musical occasions that are well worth a visit:  On Saturday (20 Oct) Local heroes Sunny Skies celebrate 40 Years as a premier Bonn Band – The Bonn Voice Choir, and Hofgarten Orchestra will be joining Rope Schmitz and co to add even more oomph to the Band’s versions of classics like Queens Bohemian Rhapsody at Bruckenforum, and if the snippet shown on WDR television recently of rehearsals is anything to go by, it should be rather special.  Rope talked to 3SONGS about the Band recently – INTERVIEW HERE

Also this weekend,  Maya Fadeeva is just one of the musicians  appearing in the final concert of this years Jazztube competition run by SWB.  The three most popular bands from Bonn’s Tubestation competition, as voted for by the commuting public, will be laying down a smooth groove for sure at the Harmonie on Sunday (21st Oct).
