Do you have new solo or duo material you’re itching to present?
Join us for Donau115’s regular open stage series, Two-Song Tuesdays.

Your set may include TWO SONGS or last TEN MINUTES.

“How do I get booked?”
Just show up // There is no pre-booking // Sign up opens at 19:00 (first come, first booked) // The first performer will begin at 20:00 // No soundcheck – so be ready. Slip on, blow minds, slip off.

“What can I play?”
This is entirely up to you. Out of respect for our neighbours:
– you may NOT use loud percussion and loud bass-heavy signals into the PA.
– you are welcome to use our backline, which includes:
— piano
— generic vocal microphones
— a small terrible PA, accepting guitar/XLR cables (new one coming soon!)

“But what about Covid-19”
Yep, we know. 🙁 No more than 25 people may be in our stage area at any time. Those wishing to enter after that capacity has been reached can enjoy a drink or a taco in the back room or outside on our sidewalk seating until more spaces become available.

“Anything else?”
Donau115 is a very fun but weird musician’s musician kind of bar, come expecting oddballs.

Constantly Moving Happiness Machines

Constantly Moving Happiness Machines

Jonathan Lindhorst – tenor sax
Mark Pringle – piano
​Huw V. Williams – bass
Max Santner – drums

Constantly Moving Happiness Machines is an exciting new international collaboration featuring fresh and wonky grooves, long form compositions, and exploratory free improvisations. The musical relationship of German- Canadian saxophonist Jonathan Lindhorst, Welsh bassist Huw V. Williams, and Austrian drummer Max Santner dates back to their early meeting at the JIMS workshop in Salzburg back in 2008. Since then, the three have kept up a musical dialogue over the past decade, which has developed even further with the inclusion of British pianist Mark Pringle to form “Constantly Moving Happiness Machines”, an exploratory quartet searching for musical progress.


Fr, 23. Oktober 
Filipe Duarte – Room in the Middle

Filipe Duarte – Guitar / Composition
Julius Gawlik – Saxophone
Simon Quinn – Double bass
Mathias Ruppnig – Drums

Room in the Middle is Filipe’s debut album as a leader.
The compositions feature intense, through-composed, sections side by side with freer parts of collective improvisation.
Filipe’s writing proposes new roles for each member of the quartet, with concepts like melody, solo and accompaniment often intentionally left undefined.
The result is a very personal and sophisticated sonic experience that defies categorization and is sure to keep listeners on their toes.

“Intricate (…) on the one hand, melodic and fragile on the other“ – Concerto 
“The music is original, intricate and engrossing”  – London Jazz News 
“The musical interpretation is sensitive and tasteful“ – Opduvel.com
