Dear Friends of BoppinB,
you probably know feeling, when you have a good news to announce, you just cannot wait to trumpet it out to the world! But when the news isn´t that good, you await the right moment to make an announcement.
This is one such situation. Some time ago, our singer Michael announced his decision to leave the band at the end of this year and hang up his Rock & Roll shoes altogether. After the first shock subsided, we unanimously decided to find a worthy successor for him. We did not want to look for a new singer by putting ads in papers or similar methods, rather we wanted to find a singer first and announce this story after that.
We were aware, that Michael was leaving a legacy behind, with his voice and his inimitable style (not to forget his humour), which are so unique. But we also knew (not only through all these casting shows on television) that there are many fantastically talented singers in Germany, who dream of a life as a musician. So we were pretty sure of finding the right someone for our little "Scheisskapelle"....
Fabian Schulz, our booker at K.O.K.S., the producer of "B.A.N.G." and "Monkey Business" and last but not the least also our good friend, connected us to some prospective candidates. We auditioned some great singers and heard some spectacular voices who sang their interpretations of our songs. Our next problem was that with all these great singers, we had the agony of choice!
Our decision finally fell on Sebastian Bogensperger, an old friend and colleague from Aschaffenburg, whos voice really blew us away and (Bingo!) he lives in our hometown. And besides, he is already an experienced professional musician and a big-time Boppin'B fan which are the best of conditions for this job. We have already had a few rehearsals together, and believe us: it rocks ! You will be able to convince yourself starting January 2013.....
We will have warm memories of the last 17 years with Michael. Nobody can ever take away all that fun, excitement and success that we experienced together (neither from us nor from you).
But "... a magic dwells in each beginning" (H.Hesse), so we are looking forward to our time with Sebastian and everything new that comes with it.
The epilogue here belongs to Michael:
So long, and thanks for all the fish!
After 17 Years in the Rock'n'Roll Universe, the time has come to step off the starship called Boppin'B. After 17 years on the road, just one year short of coming to age, I will be leaving the band at the end of the year 2012. I am happy about the fact, that the band will move onto even newer heights with their new singer.
I am glad, that I can look back on a very interesting and successful part of my life. I was involved in seven album productions and shed a lot of sweat in the studios and the live shows in Europe and the United States.
It was a fast-paced and diverse time, I will always have fond memories of this.
Due to family reasons, it is time to leave the Rock'n'Roll business behind and break out into newer pastures and work on new memories. Of course, I wish the band and my colleagues all the very best for the future. I feel very fortunate to have come a long way with Boppin'B and could contribute to their success.
With the Album "Monkey Business" and my humble contribution to it , I am leaving my vocal legacy behind to all Rock'n'Roll enthusiasts. I say Goodbye to all the fans and friends of the band.
I am sure that the fans will continue to support Boppin'B and thank all fans and friends for your support and for the several nice and interesting conversations at the gigs and everything around it.
I have reached my final-stretch and I am spurring my horse wildly on 'till the end of 2012!
Or as the Lone Ranger would have said "Hi ho Silver, AWAYYYYY!“
We are sorry to announce that the release of the album is postponed to October 26! Two weeks of anticipation more....July 13, 2012
Now it's official:
"Monkey Business", Boppin'B-album #11 will be released on October 12, 2012! Our anticipation is gigantic, the background activities even more - we're eager how you'll like it...June 10, 2012
