This page is merely a selection of some videos that have been shot in recent years. The quality of the recordings may vary, but nonetheless I think it’ll give a good impression of who I am and what I do. Hope you’ll enjoy!

Tuesday / Witchery / Funky Burger / Smalls NYC / Green Dream

These are videos that my father shot by hand. They are very dear to me. Not only because this concert was our actual launch of the CD Smalls NYC, but most of all because there were so many people in the audience who are very close to me. You will surely notice the somewhat loose atmosphere :) A very special summer evening!
