Calling all songwriters!
Calling all composers and instrumentalists and synth wizards!
Calling all poets and writers and storytellers!
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?”
// The bar staff will give you a secret link to sign up, starting at 7pm.
// This is the performer list for the evening (LOCKED UNTIL 7PM):
http://tinyurl.com/donau115-list
// The first performer will begin at 20:00
// No soundcheck, so be ready. Slip on, blow minds, slip off.
// The host will call you to the stage in a random order. You may not reserve a specific time slot.
// We let as many people play as possible. There is usually time for 12 performers. Some weeks more, some weeks less.
“What can I play?”
This is entirely up to you, but DO NOT PLAY THE SAME SONG OVER AND OVER EVERY WEEK. THIS IS BORING. TRY NEW THINGS.
Also, 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
— PA, accepting guitar/XLR cables

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

// Kein Soundcheck – also sei bereit: “Slip on, blow minds, slip off.”
// Die Reihenfolge ist zufällig. Es gibt 12 Steckplätze. Wir erlauben mehr Aufführungen, wenn es die Zeit erlaubt.
“Was kann ich spielen?”
Dies liegt ganz bei dir. Aber, BITTE SPIELEN SIE NICHT JEDE WOCHE DAS GLEICHE LIED. DAS IST LANGWEILIG.
Aus Respekt vor unseren Nachbar*innen:
Du kannst KEINE lauten Perkussions- und lauten basslastigen Signale in die PA einspeisen.
Gerne kannst du unsere Backline nutzen, die Folgendes umfasst:
// Klavier
// Standard-Gesangsmikrofone
// PA, die Gitarren-/XLR-Kabel akzeptiert
(KEINE RCA- ODER MINIJACK-EINGÄNGE; wenn du also Konverter benötigst, musst du diese mitbringen.)

“Noch etwas?”
Donau115 ist eine wundervoll verrückte Musik-Bar, die auf merkwürdige Überraschungen wartet.

David Soyza Quartett


David Soyza (vibes) Michael Schumacher (git) Stephan Goldbach (bass) Florian Fischer (drums)
Colorful compositions and orchestrations with surprise turns, excellent and yet tasteful playing by everyone.” So beschreibt Peter Herbert die Musik auf dem Debütalbum „Taking the Lead“ vom David Soyza Quartett. Die Musik von Soyza führt die Zuhörer*innen mal vor die Filmleinwand eines kleinen Programmkinos, mal vor ein Gemälde oder einfach in den heimischen Jazz-Club von nebenan. Egal ob „Tänzerin im Nebel“ oder „Hot New Orleans Sun“ jede Komposition erzählt eine Geschichte.
Die Besetzung mit zwei Harmonie-Instrumenten ermöglicht ein umfangreiches Spektrum an verschiedenen Klängen und bricht vorgegebene Rollen auf. Jedes Instrument hat seinen Platz, kann diesen aber bei Bedarf verlassen und gleichermaßen in eine Solisten- oder Begleiter Rolle schlüpfen. Die risikoreiche Interaktion und das intuitive Feingefühl der einzelnen Musiker führt zu dem transparenten und abwechslungsreichen Bandsound dieses zeitgenössischen Jazzquartetts.

No Diving DJ Set



No Diving exist in a rarefied air: a collection of experience hungry rockers and thinkers spread across the world most of the time; an active jangle punk rock Berlin combo very little of the time. BUT – now is that time, and this is a No Diving DJ set Donau115. 23:15 – end, no cover.

Lukas Akintaya is a Berlin-dwelling drummer and composer, who has gained attention not only as a sideman, but also as co-leader of diverse projects on the international stage. Born in 1991 in Lüneburg, Germany, he had been exposed to various musics from a young age on and started playing drums at the age of six. Following a majorly classical upbringing, he gained interest in improvised and more beat-driven music in his early teens.
From 2011 to 2013, he studied at the Hochschule für Künste (University for the Arts) in Bremen, Germany, and in fall 2013 transferred to the Jazz-Institut Berlin (Universität der Künste Berlin/Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler) where he studied with John Hollenbeck, Jim Black, and Greg Cohen. He concluded his studies in Berlin in 2017. In the 2015/2016 year he completed a semester abroad at the Paris Conservatory (CNSMDP) with Dré Pallemerts. Between 2018 and 2020, Lukas studied as a scholar by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) at New York University (NYU). In New York City, he worked with musicians such as Billy Drewes, Drew Gress, Alan Ferber, Brad Shepik and Andrew D’ Angelo.
In 2014, Lukas co-founded the HOLON Trio together with his longtime companions Povel Widestrand and Mathias Jensen. Since then the trio has released the two studio albums HOLON (2016) and Shields Down (2019) and has performed many concerts on international stages.
During his time in New York, he formed his own project HUES featuring Keisuke Matsuno, Simon Jermyn and Jeremy Viner. The correspondent, critically acclaimed album HUES released on Brooklyn-based label Skirl Records in May 2021.
Lukas has appeared in concert at Carnegie Hall, Cesis Concert Hall (Riga, Latvia), Blue Note Jazz Club New York and performed at various festivals such as Umbria Jazz, Copenhagen Jazz Festival, Kurt Weil Fest, Jazzfest Berlin, Leipziger Jazztage and Bauhausfest Dessau. He is the recipient of various accolades, among them the Burghausen European Young Talent Jazz Prize, the Composition Scholarship of Lower Saxony, Graduate Scholarship of the DAAD and the IMPACT Diversity Funds.
