Vojta Drnek – accordion
Richard Šanda – trombone
Michal Šelep – double bass
Treetop is a Contemporary Chamber Jazz trio of Berlin based accordionist Vojta Drnek, Prague based trombonist Richard Šanda and Bratislava based bass player Michal Šelep. The unusual setting is the result of a unique synergy and musical and personal understanding between the three musical personalities. They inspire each other and the cooperation between the three “leaders” is very natural and fluid. Their diverse repertoire reflects many aspects of Treetop’s musical journey, spanning from modern jazz influences, folklore inspiration, to contemporary musical concepts, enabling them to explore the unknown potential of this unique instrumentation.

Els Vandeweyer (vibes)
Robert Lucaciu (bass)
Julius Windisch (piano)
is a concert series happening every two months at Donau115. it is curated by robert lucaciu & julius windisch. it features different musicians each time. improvised & composed music.
Lucía Boffo – vocals, effects
Danielle Friedman – piano
Lisa Hoppe – double bass
In the longest year they can remember, the three musicians of Zahir stumbled across each other in Berlin: Argentinian vocalist Lucía Boffo, Israeli-born pianist Danielle Friedman and German bassist Lisa Hoppe, who had just returned to her native country.
Embracing their multiple belongings and interconnections with each other, they developed tenderly improvised, bold, and humorous original music, rooted in jazz and spinning freely wherever their associations would take them. You will hear songs, based on poetry by thinkers long gone, on overheard puns and about very serious wishes.

Plague Fun: Corona Rules
Case numbers are low, but the bug’s still around so we will be taking many measures to make sure we’re all doing our part to end the pandemic once and for all.
Since September 18th we implement the so called 2G-rule at Donau115. This means only people with full vaccination or recovered people can come inside (2G = geimpft/genesen = vaccinated/recovered).
1: OUTSIDE: contact tracing – To join us outside, you must provide contact tracing information. We will keep this information safe for the required amount of time and destroy it with fire once that time has ellapsed.
2: INSIDE: vaccinated or recovered (a test is not enough) – To join us inside, you must provide contact tracing information as above. Additionally, you must provide proof of full vaccination or recovery, without exception. You cannot get in with a test (neither “Schnelltest” nor PCR-Test). Once you’re inside you don’t have to wear a mask anymore or keep minimum distance. Standing at the bar is also allowed again.
3: BE PATIENT AND FLEXIBLE- These rules are subject to change. We follow the directions of the Berlin Senate and when they provide new guidelines we will follow those. Always check the FB event or the website prior to coming to the concert to make sure you’re prepared for any government limitations that may have been imposed since last time you checked.
