Festivals & Concerts in May 2018

There are some great festivals and concerts coming up in May that I am very much looking forward to.

Firstly, and most exciting, I will be playing a few shows with my brand new band members this May which is a very nice feeling. I have the pleasure of working with three great musicians from Munich, Lukas Häfner (guitar), Bernhard Pricha (Percussion/Drums) and Sebastian Giek (Bass). I will post more about this later and introduce the new guys to you! 

We will 'kick things off' with a small warm up show in Dachau at Cafe Gramsci on 17th May before heading to Fürth a few days later to perform on the open stage at the 19 Fürther New Orleans Festival on Sunday 20th May.

25th May I'll continue on my way with a string of Solo Concerts at Blue Note in Wolfenbüttel, Then head north to play at the Ahrensburger Musicnacht Festival on the 26th May with my friends Belle Roscoe, Joel Havea Trio and Steve Baker.

The shows in May will conclude on the 31st with yet another wonderful festival Music aus Alle Welt in the magical Evangelische Kirche Flierich with Diane Ponzio, Stuart Rose & Silent Roots.

Back Road Tour End - Farewell to Band

End of an era. It's been a wonderful journey playing with these guys and girls and on Sunday night we played our last show of the 'Back Road' Album Release tour together in Tilburg NL.

Together we've played hundreds of shows and made two great albums, but after four years we all feel it's time to explore different musical paths and have decided take an indefinite break.

On January 6 2018 we will get together one last time in Essen Germany for a farewell concert.
Thanks to everyone that supported us over the years as a band. It means a lot.

Kicking Off 2017 Down Under!

As the cold winter sets in, its the perfect time to fly south and play some shows in Australia.

In January I'll be teaming up with my buddy Prita Grealy to play handful of shows in Western Australia. I will also be performing a few solo shows on the tour as well as a one off Melbourne concert at the Drunken Poet.

I look forward to catching up with some of my Australian pals and getting some sun before I head back to Europe.

Hope to see you at a show.

Day 9 - European Fall Tour

The first gig we ever played together in this incarnation of the Jaimi Faulkner Band in Europe was at the Bischofsmühle in Hildesheim. So it was a little nostalgic to come back there to perform tonight.

Day 8 - European Fall Tour

It was the first time we have played at the Tube in Düsseldorf, but damn, what a great venue and what an amazing crowd! 

I think this would have to be the most energised crowd we have played to in some time and as is often the case, when the audience has energy, the band seems to find another gear. Wednesday night was a hot, sweaty, crowded room full of some familiar faces and some new audience too. One this is for sure, we are already looking forward to coming back to Düsseldorf!

Day 7 - European Fall Tour

It was a Tuesday night in Frankfurt, so to be honest, I didn't really know what to expect. A Tuesday is probably one of the hardest nights to get people to a show, especially as the weather is starting to get greyer and the nights colder.

But to our pleasant surprised we had a decent little turnout to see us play our set at the Ponyhof.

Day 6 - European Fall Tour

I am well and truly grateful for a day off today to catch up on some much needed rest and to get some behind the scenes logistics taken care of.

Yesterday afternoon we performed at a blues festival at the Pop Podium de Flux in Zaandam, The Netherlands. We played a power-hour Rock'n'Roll set and had a brilliant gig. Judith Renkema was unavailable to perform the show so our good friend Bas Nuiver stepped in and brought some new energy to the band. It was our fourth show with Bas filling in for Judith and its always great to have him with us on the road.

After the show I received some nice comments about the new songs that we played in the set and with the evening free, we drove back to the band house in Tilburg to eat a bit of dinner, drink some wine and jump into bed early to get some well deserved rest.

Day 5 - European Fall Tour

Day five of the European Fall Tour was all about an acoustic guitars, stories and songwriting workshops in Viernheim, Germany.

Belle Roscoe and I spent two hours in the afternoon giving a songwriting workshop to some local artists who where interested in hearing about our songwriting process. It was a lovely afternoon and I must admit, hearing how everyone else goes about their songwriting was as inspiring to me as it hopefully was for them.

Later that evening we played to wonderful listening audience. It was one of those nights where you could hear a pin drop in the room. Nights like these are an absolute joy as a musician!

So far so good, the tour is going great. Tomorrow we are off to Zaandam, The Netherlands for a Jaimi Faulkner Band show.

Day 4 - European Fall Tour

After a day off where Jaimi made a dash to the airport to pick up the European Fall Tour opening act (Belle Roscoe) we got an early start and made our way to Bergheim to perform at the Medio Rhein Erft.

Belle Roscoe were in fine form as they played a beautful opening set - their first ever on German soil.

The Jaimi Faulkner band where also in fine form, playing for over an hour and a half with a few new songs included in the set.

Day 3 - European Fall Tour

Back on our way to play at the MEZZ in Breda today. Breda is basically a home show for the guys in the Band who all live in Tilburg NL.

We have a few days after tonight and then its back on the road until late October.

We still have 14 more shows around Germany and The Netherlands so be sure to check out the tour page to find a show near you!

Day 2 - European Fall Tour

Getting set up and ready at the Rathausscheune in Thedinghausen Germany. This old Barn dates back to the early 1800s and has some serious vibe!

We had a great show tonight night, the old barn sounded amazing and we ended up playing for around 2 hours with 2 encores!

Belle Roscoe to open European Fall Tour 2016

Brother and Sister duo Belle Roscoe have been announced as the opening act on the Jaimi Faulkner Band European Fall Tour 2016.

Jaimi first met Julia and Matt Gurry back in Australia in the late 1990s when they began performing in local pubs together.

Since then Belle Roscoe have gone from strength to strength growing a very loyal fan base in Australia as well as exploding in France after opening the Cannes Film Festival in 2009. Belle Roscoe have recently relocated to London UK.

 

European Fall Tour 2016

Lots of preparation is underway as the band and I get ready to hit the road in late September and October for our yearly Fall Tour throughout Europe. 

This years tour will be a little different as we are are focusing on the old saying 'out with the old and in with the new'.

What does that mean? Well, simply put, on this tour we are going to be road-testing a whole catalogue of new material that we've been writing and rehearsing throughout the year.

But don't fear, we will still be throwing in a bunch of favorites into every set to make everyone happy.

WE hope to see you at a show.

Tickets are now on sale via the TOUR page. Make sure you pre-purchase your tickets to avoid any disappointment on the night.
