Time for the Senior Recital

christopherbolte General news, Gigs

The time has come and I am finally concluding my studies of the electric bass in Osnabrück with my senior recital on the 22nd of June. I’m going to play with two of my long-time collaborators from college: Dany Ahmad (Guitar), and Daniel Guerrero (Drums). It’s gonna be a mixture of fusion, jazz, and latin fuelled with plenty of low-end. I’d love if you could stop by if you happen to be near Osnabrück!


April 1st: loos. extended live @ Jazz Club Minden

christopherbolte Gigs

No April fools here. On April 1st I’ll be performing at the very club where I went to my first jazz session back when I was 14 – The Jazz Club in Minden. I’ll be performing there alongside Franziska Loos in her projects “loos. extended” (loos + horn section) and the quintet “loos.” for two sets filled with jazz, r’n’b, and sound experiments. Be there, don’t be square 😉
