A German Morrissey, an acoustic Boy Wonder, his work is contemporary musical history in Germany.
His face in a thousand mirrors – here comes the one-man Rock’n’Roll circus Bernd Begemann: founder and a giant of the famous Hamburg School, initiator and member of various bands, TV shows, blogs and other conceivable and inconceivable, but always legendary formats.
A man, a guitar, and a digestible amount of clever, witty, evil songs that inspired not only bands like Blumfeld or Olli Schulz. What songs Begemann performs on any given night is entirely up to his mood and to the whims of the audience: “Was macht Miss Juni im Dezember” (What Does Miss June do in December), ”Unten am Hafen” (Down at the Harbour) or “Judith, mach Deinen Abschluss“”(Judith, Go On and Graduate) are only 3 of 300 favourites accompanied by Begemann’s heart-rendering guitar that test the memory of his audience that just loves to sing along.
“Begemann takes on everything between love and war as subjects for his songs. As long as this man keeps singing and performing, all is not lost in the world. Perhaps a little unjust. Listen to Bernd!“ - Thees Uhlmann
