In May and June we made a new production with Sandra Ajtner singing four songs she selected from Billie Eilish. All the instruments were played by Wolfgang Brammertz (ukulele, guitars, bass, drums programming) and Karsten Wolff (Wurlitzer e-piano, Hammond organ, various keyboard sounds) at Fox Music (Germany). We started a new cooperation with Red Sun Recording Studio in Bydgoszcz (Poland), where all the vocals were recorded and the production was mixed and mastered. Will be published soon!

Our live show with top hits from the 60s and 70s including songs from Chuck Berry, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Grateful Dead, CCR,  Steve Miller, Tom Petty, Bryan Adams, Udo Lindenberg and many more. With Peter "Backi" Backhausen (drums, vocals), Cookie Mußmann (vocals, bass), Otto Rasche (lead-guitar), Georg Bicher (rhythmn-guitar) and Karsten Wolff (vocals, keyboards). Unfortunately the Big Old Fat Airliner didn't take off due to lock-down in 2020 but went to the museum. Come 2021 it would even be illegal to meet for rehearsal the way we used to. So the Rosinenbomber took off for new shores to the Baltic fisher town of Barth (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern).

The Rosinenbomber Jubilee 2009 -2019

2019 was a double jubilee for us ..   

70 years of the historical Berlin Airlift 1948-49 where the word Rosinenbomber was initially coined. There were 40+ vintage Rosinenbomber planes visiting Germany. Also we celebrated ten years of   The Rosinenbomber  with  Peter Backhausen (Drums, Vocals)  and our  founding members Karsten Wolff (vocals, keyboards) and  Brad Irvin (vocals, bass guitar) from California and Oregon/USA, who flew into Germany for our Jubilee on D-day!

June:   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 joined by Backi Backhausen  on drums. The  new program is called On our Way back Home and leads back to Retro & Flower Power with an emphasis on The Beatles and The Grateful Dead.

January:  The Rosinenbomber  WebShop goes online! Here you can order our CD's, there are a wonderful collection of   Casual Clothing,  a Souvenir Shop  and a  Gallery featuring the wonderful ph0t0graphy of Anna Ajtner. 


In March our founding member Hansi Meier passed on 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!). Hansi could righteously claim to be the first progressive DJ in his hometown Münster. He began at the Marquee and from 1969 continued at the discotheque Lila Eule

October - December: We moved out of Altes Kurhaus in  Münster-Wolbeck for good, the place where the band had been since its beginning in 2009. Thank you for the great times we had there together. Thank you also to the magical park! The old building (opened 1893) was completely demolished in summer 2019 and will be replaced by something new. The Old Kurpark survives!
