Jazz at your event
Are you planning a private party or are you still looking for the right musical entertainment for your company event? The Swiss guitarist Beat Baumli will delight your guests with his pleasantly relaxed, but musically top-class performance. He is a professional musician with many years of live experience and therefore understands perfectly how to lead the audience through fascinating worlds of sound with charm and ease. The unobtrusively played music fits even into the smallest rooms, whether as a concert performance or discreetly in the background. You can book the guitarist solo, as a guitar duo "Guitar Talk" and in many other formations. If you have a small budget or little space, Beat Baumli is also happy to perform with authentic sounding playbacks.
The sounds and the repertoire
Beat Baumli's repertoire ranges from swinging titles like "Take The A Train" by Duke Ellington, Gershwin's "Summertime" or the catchy tune "Take Five" to bossa nova standards like "The Girl From Ipanema" and funky compositions such as "Watermelon Man" by Herbie Hancock. To create the jazzy, bluesy and groovy sounds he uses an archtop guitar, which is acoustically convincing due to its harmonic and rhythmic presence and is also a visual treat for the audience. The guitarist can spontaneously use electronics to accompany himself and then sounds as authentic and energetic as a real guitar duo.
Beat Baumli studied at the Berklee College of Music in Boston (USA). After countless performances in a wide variety of bands, the jazz professional is currently mainly active in small groups. In 2015 he was nominated for the Swiss Jazz Award. Radio Swiss Jazz regularly plays his pieces recorded with various fellow musicians. He is a part-time guitar teacher at the Academy Of Contemporary Music in Zurich, the Jazzschule St. Gallen and the Städtische Musikschulen Baden and Lenzburg.
