The FHJB story
Jochen Dornbusch :
As it reads in the bandleader's chapter, conditions were set when I was a kid. We all know, addictive behavior of
is predetermined at single-cipher age. I always switched back to the FH 5 + 2 style when playing Dixieland, especially
when blowing a big whistle called sousaphone - and ruined the nerves of my fellow musicians.
All time favorites, the Californians were frequent occupiers of my cassette deck in the car and next to cemented on my turntable. Trying a start-up with younger musicians
like me back then in Kiel, Germany, we just could go half way down the road, it turned out everybody was busy with the job at different places
all over Germany. Decades later, Jochen Breitfeld came across, FH5 - minded just alike, we gave life to a new band, although we were suffering
from some birth pain for quite a while. Plenty of phone calls, many hours to figure out the arrangements, looking for lots of equipment, the whole
thing, on and on. Oh, yes, the web page...another matter of time...
But: No humor - no job, that´s our business, come on, buddy, laugh, grab your horn, shove in the piano, place the drums and torture the strings...
and FIRE UP THE BAND!!! That's all we know. Enjoy!
