Dear friends & music lovers,
My name is Tobias Meinhart and I’m a saxophonist originally from Bavaria (Germany) now based in Brooklyn, NY. Last summer we recorded a new album in Berlin and Cologne during a short tour. This one was very special for me since star-guitarist and longtime hero of mine, Kurt Rosenwinkel was part of the project. To work with him, listen to his advice and share the stage with him was one of the best musical experiences in my life so far. I am extremely happy that we were able to record this band and can’t wait to share it with the world.
This project also feels like coming back to my roots. I‘ve now been living in New York for almost 10 years and learned so much in this amazing city, but I also enjoy coming home every summer and play with extremely talented people in Berlin. Luckily all my favorite musicians there, were excited to be part of this project which consequently led to the title “Berlin People”.
The album is already recorded and will be coming out on the New York label SUNNYSIDE Records in 2019. And the whole band will go on a 2-week Release tour in March 2019 plus some selected Release shows in the US.
But to make all this happen and cross the finish line, we now need your help! The album still needs to be mixed & mastered, we need the artwork, video material, organize the tour details, book flights, trains & hotels and get publicity. Still a lot of things but with your help we can do it.
The band is:
- Kurt Rosenwinkel: guitar
- Ludwid Hornung: piano
- Tom Berkmann: bass
- Mathias Ruppnig: drums
- & myself: saxophone
To your right you find many rewards and ways to support this project. Anything helps! Thank you so so much for your support!!
Hope to see you soon,
Risks and challenges
Organizing a tour through whole Europe with dates in Paris, London, Berlin etc. plus concerts in NY and the Eastcoast is definitively challenging, but with your help we can do it. Would be great to see each of you at one of these concerts. Luckily the Cd is recorded and everything is lined-up to finish the whole record once we have the funding. Thanks again so much!!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
