Ronnie will be performing with:

David Friedman - Vibraphone - David Friedman is considered to be one of the most influential vibraphonists in the history of the instrument. Internationally renowned as a vibraphonist, marimbist, composer and jazz educator, he has his own musical message, born of fascinatingly diverse musical influences. Having worked with such varied musical personalities as Leonard Bernstein, Luciano Berio, Bobby McFerrin, Wayne Shorter and Yoko Ono, few jazz musicians can claim as broad a spectrum of performing and recording experience.

The list doesn`t stop there. Friedman has been heard either live or on recordings with, among others, Joe Henderson, Horace Silver, Johnny Griffin, Hubert Laws, Jane Ira Bloom, Ron Carter and John Scofield. Friedman's vibraphone and compositions are both featured on Chet Baker's award winning Enja release Peace, with bassist Buster Williams and drummer Joe Chambers.

Peter Weniger - Saxophone, Composer, Producer - "Being part in the act of creation" - with this credo, Peter Weniger has worked nationally and internationally in numerous musical projects of various genres with renowned artists. High emotional and brilliant virtuosity distinguish his musical statement. Rhythm, melody, harmony and sound stand with him in the foreground - to connect the new with the old and explore new avenues.

Weniger is active both as a composer and bandleader as well as a teacher / "Jazz Educator" in many workshops at home and abroad. His recognized musical integrity is emphasized by numerous prizes, awards and tours.

Peter Weniger has toured and/or recorded with many artists and ensembles, amongst others with David Friedman, Jasper van't Hof's "Pili Pili," Billy Cobham, Maceo Parker, Eddie Palmeri, Lionel Richie, Django Bates, Mike Stern, Leni Stern, Samuel Torres, Andreas Kissenbeck's "Club Boogaloo," Peter Herbolzheimer's RC&B, and the German broadcasting service's ARD big bands of SWR, HR, NDR and WDR (South West Broadcasting, Hessian Broadcasting, North German Broadcasting and West German Broadcasting).
