Now make the "TV Fritze" even music. A thought which should immediately ascend when Reinhold Beckmann's band project is mentioned. An obvious, but not quite right. Even as a youth journalist and sports presenter started it and never really stopped. The guitar was almost always there. That there in recent years, from even to time came to public guest appearances in concerts of Barbara Schöneberger, Ina MÜller and Texas Lightning, was rather a nice coincidence. Sometimes it takes but something like a loving kick in the ass to really dare to do something.
He came suddenly about six years ago after the first broadcast of "Inas Nacht", was in the Beckmann guest. One of the band of Ina MÜller brought it to the point: "Eh Beckmann, you're a musician, do something out of it!" From then on, he began to write songs and to build their band.
Since about two years, the guys from the coast, which are grouped around Beckmann him go. He is the face of the band, but all together they stand for the musically versatile sound of his own songs. Making it the critics not easy to associate the pieces of a particular style. The spectrum ranges from rock and country to slant Rumba rhythms and sentimental jazz ballads. But in no case the public must expect a rock 'n' roll revival, rock in which older men with electric guitar on the stage and then smashed.
Rather The idea is a music that is understood acoustically especially. That is, it simply takes more or less everything on creative, what Reinhold Beckmann as a "bottle of everyday life" so encountered. Everything comes and goes, what remains random and what seems forgotten or lost - finds himself in a special sound and the themes of the pieces. This creates a very unique musical program about the "crazy charm of small things." About the quirks and oddities of our contemporaries.
A program with texts that look into the depths of everyday life, sometimes poetically, sometimes bizarre or laconically. The us exactly shrug, critical or sentimental encounter, where we were all long time or wanted to be someday. All these experiences take unsolicited simply place and then do just a little hurt. This has sometimes naughty and sometimes cheerful or toxic ironic. Really autobiographical Beckmann's texts are not actually and yet are there moments that trusts the audience to the singer, until he suddenly mitsummend finds himself as part of themselves in it. Those who listen carefully sure knows one of the oblique or lost types from the Beckmann songs because their doppelgangers are among us.
For more than two years, Beckmann Band tours regularly. Live on stage, across Germany and very close to the audience. Time in Hamburg, now in Berlin, but usually somewhere in a smaller town with a club, a theater or on open-air performances. Since you feel at home. This direct encounter estimates of television journalist, singer, guitarist and songwriter particularly: "When I feel how the audience reacts to music and lyrics, then that is great fun. This immediacy can not television. In addition, we are a "young" band for most concertgoers a musical grab bag. This makes it so exciting. "Is correspondingly great curiosity about what the already mentioned" TV Fritze "as a musician is capable of. this is a challenge that pleases him and his band obviously. Beckmann Band are of an infectious playful mood. The good reviews reflect the back.
Over the years, there is something grown system now again in a selection on the first CD, the Reinhold Beckmann deliberately only now published. "I did not equal therefore come with a CD, but initially play as much as possible live. We have now done almost 70 concerts in the last two and a half years. Now we went into the studio with this material and experience gained. "
The studio album "With all anyway maybe", produced by Stephan Gade, presented an excerpt from the repertoire that is constantly changing and the music never loses momentum.
In the range of musical styles and facets shows the special charm of the studio album, in which the sound of the small fine sets is elegant advantage. The varied instrumentation et al with accordion, trumpet, harmonica characterizes the individual character of the songs as well as the texts. Thus, "Bremen" on first hearing to prove that this piece equally fit to be catchy as the anthem. While with "Because his" a very intimate ballad the audience so intensely responsive that a breathless silence prevails. And who does not feel at first hand the irreverent but bittersweet truth when "hypochondriac", must be very good at displacing.
Besides Reinhold Beckmann Andreas Dopp and Matthias Pogoda have been involved in the composition of different pieces, Frank Ramond and Wolfgang Weismantel on the lyrics of individual songs. FOr the audience, has now found its way into the studio and on the first CD, a first, for many certainly surprising insight into what is developing in live concerts.
