Verbal drummerrhea #3


Last weekend I got to play at this beautiful Festival called “Umbria JAZZ” in Perugia. With Ola Onabule and an incredible Band we opened for Diana Krall.

Nick Flade(keys), Patrick Scales (bass), Will Fry (perc), Martin Scales (guit).



On top of that I was able to share this experience with my lovely girlfriend 🙂


The week before we (Ola Onabule & Band) played at “Muhu Future Music Festival” in Estonia. The fact that that it doesn’t really get dark at night and that I got food poisoning from a dodgy breakfast egg made this trip even more memorable.


21st  through 26th of June I got to work/tour with the “Markus Geiselhart Orchestra feat. Ray Anderson”. I’m very grateful for that experience. As a drummer, to play with a Big Band like this, is some powerful stuff! 🙂



That’s it for the moment. more soon.

Since we’re gonna embark on our little tour through Austria in February, we are releasing a new Song every two weeks. On YouTube, Facebook, Soundcloud, Twitter, Fritter, Gritter, Sritter and of course –  Zritter.

At this point, in February, we’re gonna have a physical CD. A real thing, that you can hold in your hands, touch, smell and listen to. You can also use it as a beer coaster if that’s what you wanna do.

And our website is live as well. there’s not that much content (yet), but there are a couple of Songs and Videos for u to feed your eyes and ears with.

Hi Folks!

Interesting times (for me)! At the moment I’m working intensely on two exciting Projects. And heeeere they are…

My friend John Wells and my bad self are busy working on our first Album. The recording process at Echo Zoo Studios in Eastbourne/UK is pretty much finished. So, the next step is gonna be to mix that beast.

We’re also planning a little Album-Release-Tour for February 2016

I’ll keep you posted…:)

Here’s a little Studio snippet:

Also, if you have not watched the following or wanna revisit, there you go:



Daniel Haselwanter: Guitar, Ukulele, Vocals; Stefan Thaler: Bass; Me: Drums, Vocals

We also just hit the Studio (FreiAudio) to record some music. Here’s a little taste… This was recorded live at the Studio. No Overdubs, no edits, no nothing… here we go:

On another note

I also played a couple of Shows this year in Italy and Germany with the very talented singer Ola Onabule from London/UK.
