The General Anzeiger’s Sommergarten tends to be coverband/Jazz based, so Blues on the roof is a rarity; In fact one of the few Blues shows there that I remember was by the late Lee Lozowick. It was something of a shock when merchandising Manager Anke Olowson pointed out that it took place in 2007. This time around it’s Lozowick’s band mates from Arizona, Shri, who serve up a generous helping of Willie Dixon, Robert Johnson and even a bit of Robert Dylan.
If you did`t make it to Rheinstrasse for the show, make a date in your diaries for 20th October when the Band will be joined by BonnVoice and the Hofgarten Orchestra to celebrate it’s 40th Anniversary in style at Bonn Bruckenforum.
There’s Blues with Shri, Jazz with Seatown Seven, and Irish Folk from Paddy goes to Holyhead before Sunny Skies finish the Season with style.
Unfortunately there is no return to the special flair of music from the Kunsthalle rooftop though – as last year, the shows will run from Rheinhotel Dreesen’s Kastaniengarten (Rheinstrasse 45-49) 11:30 to 14:30
