Now touring with my new solo show!


An homage to the greatest trumpet players of all times such as Chuck Mangione, Maynard Ferguson, Paul Cacia, Derek Watkins, Louis Armstrong or Herb Alpert.

Everlasting melodies of today and of times gone by. Opera, Rock, Movie tunes, Ballads, Pop, R&B and much more.

Highlights of the show:

  • Three 50 minute shows available
  • Multi-instrumental show: I play the trumpet and the flugelhorn, play the piano, the blues harp, and I sing
  • I can perform in English and German
  • Full band required (7 - 9 pieces) - all charts available

Bands - Currently I play with the following bands & musicians on a regular basis.

Shows - My trumpet feature shows are custom tailored in order to fit any kind of event.

I offer dappered dinner as well as dance music with a small combo or solo piano. I can also deliver bombastic BigBand sound and Soul Band feeling à la Tower of Power or Blues Brothers and trumpet acrobatics (e.g. simultaneous piano and trumpet playing) to make any of your events a special one.

Online Sessions - Professional Remote Recording

Add me to your next work of art

As recording at a professional studio can be quite expensive and nowadays this is also pretty difficult to be organized online sessions have become very popular these days.

I offer online recording sessions at my professional home studio ranging from individual tracks to complete albums. I play your charts as provided or I can arrange the required brass parts from trumpet solo to complete horn sections.

How does it work? Pretty simple!

  • Send me all the information regarding your musical project, the respective tracks and your music (if available)
  • My trumpet or flugelhorn recordings are in 44.1 or 48k WAV format
  • You'll eventually receive an unprocessed WAV file for your track, ready to be imported into your project and for adding any effects, compression, EQ you require

It is really that simple! You also decide what instruments and sounds you want me to use to match your individual sound requirements (e.g. using specific mutes and distortion pedals).

Listen to the latest tracks and Watch the videos produced exclusively using remote recording of all instruments:

I'm looking forward to appearing in one of your next projects.
