“How do I get booked?”
// show up at 19:00 to register at the bar
// 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.

– you are welcome to use our backline, which includes:
— generic vocal microphones
— PA, accepting guitar/XLR cables
Donau115 is a very fun but weird musician’s musician kind of bar, come expecting oddballs.

Roz Macdonald Trio (Album Release Concert)
Béla Meinberg – Piano
Roz Macdonald – Bass
Jordan Dinsdale – Drums
This trio formed towards the end of 2020 after Roz received a scholarship from Musikfonds ‘Neustart Kultur, which enabled her to write and record her first album. This concert will celebrate the release of this album entitled ‘Make Do’
Double bassist and bandleader Roz Macdonald originally comes from Scotland and has been living and establishing herself as a musician in Berlin since 2017. Roz studied jazz at Leeds College of Music where she received the Yamaha Jazz Scholarship for outstanding musicians upon graduating in 2015. Since then she has played around Europe with some of the top renowned jazz musicians in the world including Scott Hamilton, Bruce Barth and Perico Sambeat.
Béla Meinberg is a German pianist, based in Hamburg and Berlin. He has worked with some of the finest jazz musicians around including Billy Hart, Seamus Blake, Matt Penman, Chris Cheek, Doug Weiss and John Stowell. His playing characterises a lyrical approach, always swinging and a good sense of humour.
Jordan Dinsdale is an English Jazz musician hailing from the city of Bradford in the North of England, now residing in Berlin. Jordan has studied with some of the greatest teachers of this music, most notably Jimmy Cobb. Since moving to Berlin, Jordan has recorded a debut trio album with Greg Cohen and Declan Forde, FORDE/COHEN/DINSDALE. Jordan is a member of the Doug Weiss Berlin band, a quartet set to release its debut album soon.
Do, 7. Juli
Nora Jim – keys, vocals
Sébastien Degueldre – bass
Sebastián Rosales Morandé – drums
The band Eleven creates a unique style combining pop music and „dark“ rock with alternative jazz. Each song has its own identity, build upon strong melodies, rich sounds and symbolic texts, that leave enough space for one’s own interpretation. Eleven was formed in 2020 by the pianist and singer Nora Jim and the bass player Sébastien Degueldre. The duo, originally from Belgium, was joined one year later by the chilean drummer Sebastián Rosales Morandé in Berlin. Eleven has recorded three albums so far: „Dreamer“ (2020), „Last Year Again“ and „Hot lake“ (2021).

Donau Conversations feat. Kraef / Gincel / Berkmann / Ruppnig
Ben Kraef – sax
Uri Gincel – piano
Tom Berkmann – bass
Mathias Ruppnig – drums
Donau Conversations is a monthly concert series presented by Berlin-based drummer Mathias Ruppnig. Each event will feature groups of varying styles and personnel, performing jazz standards, original music or free improvisation.
“For me, Donau115 is a place that allows new musical and personal friendships to form, as well as a place to experiment with innovative musical concepts in front of a respectful and attentive audience.“
QUEER CHEER is a young Berlin collective of musicians who are in some way connected to the local jazz scene.
Julia Kadel, Erik Leuthäuser, Friede Merz and Laura Winkler have come together with the desire to build a queer community.
Under the umbrella of the meta-community Future Bloom, which places its work in the service of intersectionality, multiperspectivity and interdisciplinarity, this collective focuses on the exchange of being queer as a “jazz” musician.
Having two ambiguous terms like “queer” and “jazz” at the fulcrums of their work promises to be a particularly inspiring exchange. Which is just another reason to invite incredibly inspiring guests at this kick-off event as part of Berlin Jazz Week #4:
