June, 2012 - "Alexander and the beautiful people who came to my appearance at "Down By The River" are music lovers who gave the songs the respect I believe they deserve. This may be the best gig for a songwriter in Europe." - Bill Toms

About Our House Concerts

(I'm German, so please excuse my english)

I'm a strong supporter and enjoy-er of independent music & musicians.

For quite a while, my house is a place for wandering troubadours to stay and relax and explore my hometown Berlin.

I've also been doing house concerts just for the fun of it (for me) and for my befriended musicians to help them to get more attention, sell some CD's and make some money.

I'm doing a house-concert every month (sometimes 2 a month) in my basement which can hold up to 30 people comfortably. If we squeeze, some more..

Please email a link to the most useful webpage for me to sample your music and/or videos.

I try my very best to respond to your inquiry within the week, to let you know if I feel my audience is a good fit for your music.

Important: please take a look at my host profile before you inquire.

Another part of my fun is that I'm a "taper" and I do like to record each house concert, therefore i ask you for your permission beforehand.
