OUR BAND

 

Jazzy sound and always the right beats are provided by:

 

Joachim Bolte (drums, percussion)

From his early youth, Joachim loves it "to hit things" and consequently made his passion into his occupation.

He plays drums and timpani in several cover bands and big bands, as well as in more classical converts.

He also cares about the future of playing drums as a music teacher at 3klang e.V. in Olching.
