lineup Romantidote : Calum Bolland (Vocals Guitar)
Britain, France Italy and Ecuador, an alliance of nationalities which have come together to give Berlin its newest reason to tear the walls down. Askers Dodge is a blistering 4-piece indie band from Berlin, kindling shades of Queens of the Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys and Black Sabbath. Shows are frequent and energetic, full of witty lyrics, thick guitar and emotional theatre. All held up by a dancey rhythmic engine room, Askers Dodge is capable of turning every night into a Saturday night. On this special acoustic night, they strip their set back to the essentials and invite the audience to view them in an intimate new setting.

The group Ludescher/Gawlik/Adomeit/Huber consists of four Berlin based musicians who are coming together for the first time in this constellation. Living in Berlin as a musician is a delightful experience because the scene in jazz remains fresh and open. All 4 of those incredible musicians have played countless gigs and sessions in and around Berlin with one another in different constellations. Therefore it is a very special occasion to see them all in one place for this concert. They will play a fine array of well selected original compositions that will gain new colors and shapes through the interpretation of this unique musicians. Allthough all of the musicians come from a traditional jazz background, the compositions will shed light on every aspect of the musical spectrum and genres, striving for the unexpected.
Some Details on the individual musicians.
