Axel Zwingenberger and Ben Waters wish to commemorate the passing of their dear friend and mentor Charlie Watts, with whom they shared a love of boogie-woogie and swing, by recreating the music they all loved so much in their band, the ABC&D of Boogie Woogie.They will be playing their best as a tribute to a kind and talented man.

Their musical guests are Lluís Coloma from Spain and Luca Sestak from Germany, amazing pianists and performers with whom Axel and Ben are proud to share the stage, with more guests to be announced.

Axel Zwingenber is renowned as the world’s leading expert on boogie-woogie, not just in his phenomenal playing, but also his superb knowledge and love of the history of boogie-woogie.

Luca Sestak is only 25 and an incredible musician – it’s like the piano is part of him. He is simply one of the best pianists ever to come out of Germany; whether playing the music of Albert Ammons, Chopin or Billy Joel, he is sublime.

Lluís Coloma is the ambassador of blues and boogie-woogie piano playing in Spain and is well-known throughout Europe and Asia as a master of these styles. His music is unique, with a special personal touch that makes him an exceptional pianist and composer, combining traditional blues and jazz music with his special Spanish and Catalan flavour.

Ben Waters is one of the genre’s top session musicians, having worked with The Rolling Stones, Chuck Berry, Sir Ray Davies, Jools Holland, and many more.
