Welcome to the Rosinenbomber Homepage!
2019 is a double jubilee year for us: 70 years of the historical Berlin Airlift 1948-49 where the word Rosinenbomber was coined. And ten years of The Rosinenbomber established 2009. Peter "Backi" Backhausen (Drums, Vocals) from "Udo Lindenberg & das Panikorchester" has joined the band, and we are very happy about the re-union with our founding member Brad Irvin (Vocals, Bass guitar) from California and Oregon/USA, who came to Germany for our Jubilee on D-day!
Log Book 2019:
June 8th: Jamming at Rosengarten (Billerbeck). After two years The Rosinenbomber are back as a live band. The set-up as a trio is very much like the initial band from 2009 with founding members Brad and Karsten with Backi as the latest and greatest drummer we've ever had! The make-over included putting together a new program named On our Way back Home. We're back to Retro & Flower Power again with an emphasis on The Beatles, The Grateful Dead and own material!
June 11th: Brad playing his 6-string bass and singing at the Blues Session, Der bunte Vogel downtown Münster. This is where we actually had our very first public performance back in 2009. Brad was a regular visitor to the famous Tuesday sessions until 2012 and returned in 2019 after seven years.
June 15th (Saturday): Jamming at Rosengarten (Billerbeck) once more with the initial trio Brad, Karsten & Backi putting together all those wonderful tunes and beats. Georg Bicher (from Firebirds) joins with rhythm guitar, and Friedrich Brocke, our drummer 2013 - 15, comes for a visit from Potsdam! Location: Bombeck 13, 48727 Billerbeck 4 - 7 p.m. (free access and admission, car parking, suited for children).
March/April: Peter "Backi" Backhausen (Drums, Vocals) from Udo Lindenberg & das Panikorchester and Georg Bicher (Rhythm Guitar & Vocals) from Firebirds join The Rosinenbomber. After almost two years focus on production a new live band is emerging!

Log Book 2018
January: DVD Mad World Movie and the PICTURE BOOK published with Sandra & Anna Ajtner at the Polish Library in Amsterdam.
March our founding member Hansi Meier passed away at the age of 69. "We gotta get out of this place" was one of the many titles we liked to play together. You can find this and more recordings on our CD "The sky is no limit" (2013) which is still available at our WebShop (click on the link!!). There is a collection of photos from "Der Meier" in honor of our good comrade and friend all those year! 69 of course is symbolic for the year 1969 when Hansi started his career as the first progressive DJ in Münster. The same year "Woodstock", the "mother of all festivals", took place in the USA.
April: #Rosinenbomber established as a new brand for quality clothing. Photo session #BeHereNow at Ajtner Fine Art Gallery in Nijmegen/NL: RB Casual Clothing
May: Follow-up contract with Sandra Ajtner, Best Newcomer RBP 2017, and her mother, manager and photographer Anna Ajtner. It's Candy from now on, and Candy is very much Sandra's own creation: name, logo, colors and the songs are her own choice and inspiration.
June: Pre-production "I'll show you" for CANDY with Wolfgang Brammertz and Karsten Wolff at Fox Music Studios (Germany). We continue the good work we did for "Mad World" in 2016/17 with Wolfgang playing Fender Bass & E-Guitar, also creating the wonderful beats, and Karsten Hammond-Organ and DX7 Synthesizer.
August - October: The basic tracks have been flown into the Netherlands and overdubbed with Candy's vocals, remixed and mastered by Paul Pouwer (engineer) and Dennis Rens (assistant) at the magical Power Sound Studio in Amsterdam. Great atmosphere throughout the recordings. Big thank you!
October - December: "We gotta get out of this place"! Moved out from "Altes Kurhaus" in Münster (Westf.) where the band had been since 2009. Thank you for the great times we have had there together. Thank you also to the magical park!
