// 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.

Mi, 29. Juni 
Birgitta Flick Quartet


Andreas Schmidt (p)
James Banner (b)
Max Andrzejewski (dr)
Birgitta Flick (sax)

The quartet, praised by the critics for its extraordinary sensitivity and virtuosic and spirited playing, is considered as one of the most interesting projects of the young German jazz generation. Initiated by the Berlin based saxophone player and composer Birgitta Flick, it was founded as a band that is clearly shaped by her compositional voice, but at the same time approaching the music together as freely and openly as possible; with artistic and improvisatory impulses by all the band members. In 2013 the band released its debut album “Yingying“ on Double Moon as part of the Jazz thing “Next Generation” series. After two more albums, concerts in clubs and at festivals throughout Germany and internationally as well as cooperations with musicians in Sweden and Saudi-Arabia, the quartet releases in May 2022 “Miniatures & Fragments“, its 4th album for Double Moon Records.
“If the color studies referenced by Birgitta Flick on her third quartet album were to be conceptualized, they would make up a mottled, impressionist canvas. The brush strokes – or instrumental detail – fade into one another with infinitive intricacy and subtly emotive touches.“
Ammar Kalia, Downbeat, 2/2019
“The quartet of tenor saxophonist Birgitta Flick with Andreas Schmidt (piano), James Banner (bass) and drummer Max Andrzejewksi presents a really colorful, varied and profoundly sophisticated album (…). The intention to improvise is consistently perceptable and it’s obvious that this group has been together for a long time and can interact perfectly.“
Teddy Doering, Jazzpodium 12/2018-1/2019

Yuriy Seredin is a ukrainian pianist and composer. He is a sensetive and imaginative musician with his eyes on the future. His ability to develop musical narrative through his multy-layered compositions is impressive and his connection to music is genuine.
His debut album Asylum Search (2018) received an award as Album of the Year (Radio.Aristocrats, Ukraine). The band will perform some music from the album as well as new compositions, influensed by recent events of war in his motherland.
