Handmade, high-quality, exciting music from one of the world's largest musical families - jazz. Intergenerational, captivatingly emotional. On the basis of blues and jazz, the world's first pop music, incredibly great new family members have been born: Dixieland, Swing, Boogie Woogie, Rock`n Roll, Soul, Funk and Latin, and much more. We don't want to pigeonhole summer jazz, no - it is and remains a special offer for friends of good music and they don't need a grid. It is not important to set up large amplification systems, no - we musicians primarily deliver our skills and the technology may accompany us a little. Spoiled by delicious small dishes, a fine Pilsner or good Palatinate wines, you can enjoy the evening, life, music and friends at the table or on a picnic blanket in the meadow. This is the way of life

Time window:

July and August - always on Wednesday, from 7 - 10 pm As our music friends like to have a little lead time, many will be there early. Admission and start of catering at 17:00. Karl Pletsch from Rolling Snack and his TEAM will spoil us with barbecue specialties, Paulaner beer and wine from the Deidesheim Winegrowers' Association.

Target group:

The target group for our music is between 40 and 80 years old and mostly well-off. They love the constant, unagitated and yet stimulating offer and particularly appreciate the regularity. Music lovers don't have to keep themselves constantly informed and can simply go, or not. This ensures relaxation. No information overload, no sensory overload.


We can't plan the weather and we can't change anything, so we take ANY weather and dress accordingly. Otherwise, if the weather conditions are borderline, nobody will know whether to come or not. So always on Wednesday, whatever the weather!


The costs for attending the event are 3 Euro. The summer jazz collection will be held to further finance the bands. These donations go entirely to the music program and help to cover expenses and travel costs. Without our sponsors, however, the event series would not be possible - THANK YOU !!!
